Location and What to Bring


The fifth annual Gustavus Show Choir Camp is located on the beautiful campus of Gustavus Adolphus College, located in St. Peter, Minn., 65 miles southwest of the Twin Cities on Highway 169.

Our camp offers a carefully supervised introduction to college life. Students live in college residence halls, eat in the nationally ranked campus-dining center, and attend sessions in college buildings. The structure, opportunities, and adult supervision available at Gustavus make it a first choice for concerned parents.

In order to feel right at home, please consider bringing the following with you to camp:

  • Fan
  • Alarm Clock
  • Pillow(s)
  • Blanket(s) (Sheets will be provided)

Camp Attire

You should plan to wear athletic or dance attire during the camp. You will be very active throughout the week and need to be able to move with comfort and freedom. Shorts, t-shirts, socks and tennis shoes are highly recommended. Tennis shoes must be worn at all times to help prevent injury. Women do not need to bring character shoes.

Performance Attire

Men: Camp t-shirt (provided), relaxed-fitting jeans (not shorts), white socks, tennis shoes
Women: Camp t-shirt (provided), jean shorts (not jeans), short white socks, tennis shoes

Without using formal costuming, the performance attire listed above will greatly enhance the visual impact of the choreography and blocking for the show. Tennis shoes should be predominantly white, if possible. Please double-check that you have the items listed above for use during our camp performance!


If you would like to bring a laptop or tablet to camp, you will have access to our wireless network, but not to a printer. Please note that it is not required to bring your laptop or tablet, as you will have access to computer labs on campus throughout the week.

Music for the Talent Show

If you would like to audition for the camp talent show, please prepare a vocal or dance selection prior to camp. A professional pianist will be provided if you need one. If you are using a karaoke-style accompaniment, please bring it on a compact disc (CD). Be sure to bring a copy of the music with you as well. Auditions will be held on Tuesday amd the talent show will be held on Thursday evening.  Please plan to audition!
