Music Camp Approaches

Ontario Mennonite Music Camp pairs exceptional musical instruction with all the fun of summer camp. The two-week camp is hosted at Grebel August 13-25, and is open to youth aged 12-17. OMMC is a partnership between Grebel and Mennonite Church Eastern Canada.

Mykayla TurnerOMMC is filled with fun—including campfires, ensembles, recreation games, and musical productions—and the people who run the camp make all the difference. Mykayla Turner (BSC 2020) and Emily Rempel are the 2023 co-directors. During Mykayla’s time at Grebel, she participated in several music ensembles and was Student Council President. In 2019, Grebel granted Mykayla the Eby Leadership Award to acknowledge her leadership that improved the quality of community at the College. She is currently finishing a Master of Sacred Music degree at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. “I’m most excited to introduce campers to music from a variety of sources in a supportive, community-oriented environment,” she said.

Emily Rempel“I am thrilled to be returning to OMMC this summer!” said Emily, who graduated from Canadian Mennonite University with a Bachelor of Music degree and has worked in music, church, and educational settings in both Kitchener and Winnipeg. “My favourite part of OMMC is seeing the intersection of music, community, and play,” said Emily. She looks forward to sharing laughter, memories, and her love for music with campers this summer.
