Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Welcome to Csehy Summer School of Music. I trust that as you browse our site, you will catch the spirit and vision of our founders, Wilmos and Gladys Csehy. It was their dream to see young musicians have the opportunity to discover the compatibility of musical excellence and Christian commitment in a relaxed summer camp setting. Since 1962, thousands of young people have fulfilled that dream. Last summer we had campers come from ten countries and nineteen states to experience Csehy Summer School of Music. They discovered a caring community with similar passions for incredible music and authentic Christianity.
The 2012 summer season is almost upon us. It is exciting to see the registrations pouring in and to take the phone calls from families around the world as they explore the possibilities that Csehy Summer School of Music offers. It is also extremely gratifying to reconnect with alumni from the past 50 seasons. At a recent homeschool convention where I was promoting the ministry, a man came to our booth and declared that he was a camper in 1983 and 1984. He related that he often told his wife of the impact that a small music camp in Muncy, Pennsylvania had in his life. He shared with me that his Csehy experience was pivotal and formative in his walk of faith. He is now a pastor and points to his summers at Csehy as the foundation of his desire to follow and serve Christ. As he told his story, I saw his face light up. He could not wait to tell me that he had long thought we had ceased to exist after leaving Muncy in 1995. The thrill in his voice and body language was unmistakable as he almost wept upon hearing of God’s faithfulness to the ministry in the intervening years.
I can barely wait to meet all the new campers and to greet those returning for another summer of eternal impact. Help me spread the word! Tell all you know about Csehy Summer School of Music. Give many more young musicians the opportunity to make memories that last a lifetime and change lives.
If you desire to learn more about Wilmos and Gladys Csehy and the history of the camp, I would encourage you to obtain a copy ofHeartstrings. This biography of Wilmos Csehy reveals the man and his passion for Christ and for music. I know you will find it inspiring, and it will give you a much greater appreciation for this wonderful ministry that bears his name.
In Christ's service,
