For girls, the appropriate concert attire is nice slacks and a nice blouse, a skirt (no shorter than just above the knees) and a nice blouse, or a dress (no shorter than just above the knees).

Rule of thumb: church clothes.

All campers will be performing final performances on Friday night and/or Saturday. Performing clothes should be the standard performance attire, which is ALL BLACK.

For girls, we recommend nice black slacks and black blouse with sleeves - no sleeveless or spaghetti straps will be allowed. Short sleeves, 3/4 sleeves, or long sleeves are good. Also, a black skirt (no shorter than just above the knees) and black blouse (see aforementioned sleeve requirements) or black dress (same sleeve length requirements).
