Camp Fasola – Adult Emphasis is open to both youth and adults, beginners and experienced singers. Multiple daily sessions will be devoted to teaching Sacred Harp singing, as well as times for recreation, rest, fellowship, and singing. All campers will be expected to perform some area of service during the week. More than 200 campers attended in 2010.

The camp fee includes four nights air-conditioned lodging and meeting rooms, eleven meals, snacks, t-shirts, lessons, and activities. Camp fee for guests not participating in the Sacred Harp activities add $200. Reservations are available on a first come / first served basis.

Sleeping quarters at Camp McDowell are motel style rooms with two full beds (linens provided) and private bathroom. (Adult Camp fee is for double occupancy. Add $150 for single occupancy / subject to availability.)

We are unable to accommodate campers 6-9 years of age without a parent/guardian who will be responsible for supervising them around the clock. (You should expect that this will require taking housing in a hotel at your expense). Travel to camp is the responsibility of campers. Please note that singings are held nearby on the weekends before and after both sessions of camp.

The Adult Emphasis Camp will begin on Sunday, June 10th at 4:00 p.m. and will run through Thursday, June 14th at 8:00 a.m. This session will be programmed with an emphasis for adults (fewer recreation options, more singing elective classes). Adult camp will be held at Camp McDowell on Alabama Highway 195 between Jasper and Double Springs. (Note that the National Convention will be held following camp on June 14–16 in Birmingham.)

While the two camp sessions are not exclusive for different age groups, the sessions are structured to offer classes and activities that better fit the interests shown by youth and adults in past camps. Some campers may need to attend a particular session to fit their personal schedules.
