Camp Timpoochee (4-H Camp) Niceville, Florida
September 21-23, 2018

Ever wanted to sing in a “large chorus” to an audience of over 300?  Would you like to have individualized coaching for your chorus or your quartet?  Want to meet and mingle with more than 60 other barbershoppers having the same love of singing four-part harmony?  Are you willing to spend an intense weekend honing your singing skills? Want to see a young men and women learning and singing four-part harmony?  Want to compete as a chorus or quartet on a regional level before a very appreciative audience?

If the answer is “YES!” then you need to attend our annual barbershop retreat intensive in Niceville, FL on the fourth weekend in September. The retreat is a District sponsored event and hosted by the Emerald Coast Chorus of Fort Walton Beach. The event has been held continuously for the past 28 years. It is held at a wonderful 4-H facility (http://florida4h.org/camps_/timpoochee/) two miles east of Niceville, situated on the Northwest coast of the beautiful Choctawhatchee Bay. We rent the entire facility for the weekend. All facilities within the Camp are air-conditioned. There are cabins (capacity: 140 people, 5 bunks to a cabin), a large cafeteria, a small theater, and rehearsal areas. All meals are included in your registration fee. All facilities are located within a three block area, an easy walking distance. Coaches are available to help your chorus or quartet.

For a very reasonable fee, we will provide sheet music; air conditioned cabins, meals (5) and coaching for the weekend (Friday evening and Saturday).  The weekend concludes with a contest and show on Saturday evening. We expect to have over 200 men and women, including high school young men and women on stage Saturday evening. The young men have been attending for many years. Last year we started inviting women a cappella choruses and high school young ladies. The weekend event will include quartet competition (men’s, women’s and mixed), chorus completion and a very large chorus finale.

And, yes, we DO have an afterglow – food, beverages and singing around a campfire.  Come prepared to have a BLAST!!
