Aurora Vocalis Music Academy has in July 2021, for the first time arranged a musical summer camp for children and teens aged 6-16 years old. Do you love to sing, play an instrument, or wish to learn? Maybe you want to play and sing together with others? Want to learn more Norwegian or English at the same time? If so, you should join our Musical Summer Camp in July 2023!

Summer camp 2021 - What happened?

Here you can read what happened in 2021. We can not guarantee that the camp will be exactly the same as in 2021, but we are using it as a template for further planning. 

Food: Snacks and lunch are included, but please bring your own water bottle. Rema 1000 Storaberget is giving us free fruit the first week. Our contributor for Wednesday's lunch 07.07.21, is Greenpeas, who has given us very reduced prices: 

Time: The camp opens at 08.00 and closes at 16.00. There will be a snack break around 10.15 and lunch with hot or cold food around 12.20. Break times are indicative and can vary somewhat depending on the lessons.

Delivery and pick-up: Morning registration between 08.00-09.00. Pick-up between 15.30 and 16.00. For pick-up, please come to the gate and announce your arrival to our base contact and then wait outside the playground! Do not wait in the playground. The base contact will bring your child to you. No students are allowed to leave the camp without signing out with the base contact. Delivery or pick-up outside these hours must be agreed beforehand.

Costs: The offer is free of charge, included food, and fully funded by "Barnas sommer 2021" (The children's summer), Stavanger Municipality. The British International Schools of Stavanger, BISS Gausel and BISS Foundation are graciously making their premises and equipment available, free of charge to support this project. Some of the food is also sponsored by local businesses. 


  • Rain gear, gum boots and other appropriate clothes for that day.
    Each student will have their personal space for clothes, so they may leave a set of everything behind for the duration of their camp period.
  • Change of clothes. If a child has an accident or becomes wet or dirty, they need a change of clothes. We are not able to provide this.
  • Indoor shoes.
  • Pencil case with content for writing and drawing. If they have their own scissor as well, that would be good to bring. This is again to limit sharing of equipment. If you don't have all the content, we have equipment to borrow.
  • Water bottle
  • Instrument. As stated earlier, you bring it if you have it.
  • Headset (phono, not bluetooth)

Absence: If your child will be absent from camp, please contact us as soon as possible, preferably 24 hours before. We are buying and preparing food every day and if students don't show up without notice, we'll have a lot of food waste. 

Entry: Send an email to the camp to be waitlisted.

Infection control will be followed in accordance with Stavanger municipality's corona measures, as well as BISS's routines for the use of instruments and premises. Sick students or parents must not come to camp.
