Announcing Camp Acappella - a new, national, all-acappella Summer Camp! (
Camp Acappella is founded by two of the biggest names in contemporary acappella today:
  • Deke Sharon - vocal producer of The Sing-Off & Pitch Perfect, musical director of The House Jacks, founder of the Contemporary Acappella Society of America
  • Brody McDonald - director of Eleventh Hour (The Sing-Off, ACDA National 2011) and author, "Acappella Pop: A Complete Guide to Contemporary Acappella Singing")
Camp Acappella takes place June 11-15 at The Ohio State University, and is open to both High School singers (incoming freshman for next year up to graduating seniors this year) and directors (separate director track). Camp staff includes Deke Sharon and The House Jacks, Brody McDonald, and many other acappella all-stars (see for details).
Campers will be divided into performing ensembles to rehearse throughout the week for an end-of-camp show, but will also receive instruction on...
  • arranging
  • recording
  • songwriting
  • vocal percussion
  • visual presentation
  • and much more!
Other camp activities include:
  • Concerts by Eleventh Hour, Forte, and The House Jacks (
  • Pitch Perfect sing-along viewing with Q&A with Deke Sharon
  • All-camp collaborative recording project to be released as a single
  • End-of-camp show featuring all camp ensembles and The House Jacks
Both dorm-style lodging and commuter-camper options are available, all meals included. Cost is $500 for students (quad housing) / $600 for directors (single housing), but you can save up to $100 through our refer-a-friend program. We currently have campers coming from Ohio, Michigan, Tennessee, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Georgia, Missouri, and California. Don't miss this amazing experience!
