An Experience for Generations

It began as a vision of one man. Today, 63 years later, Varner Chance's idea of a faith based, musical retreat for church choir members and leadership has become an experience that has brought thousands closer to God through song and prayer. Families have shared and passed on the Epworth Forest Choir School experience from generation to generation.

Founded on the hallowed grounds of Epworth Forest, next to Lake Webster in North Webster, Indiana, Epworth Forest Choir School developed deeply-rooted traditions, many of which survive today.

In 2005, the camp moved to Anderson University (AU) in Anderson, Indiana. Professional-quality rehearsal and performance space, comfortable housing, scenic grounds and Christian principles made AU the ideal location to grow the Choir School Spirit for future generations.
