Summer Camp Budget Recording Studio Help

I'm looking at setting up a studio for my summer camp. Something super dirty.

What kind of gear would you recommend for:
- Mic-ing Acoustic Guitar (2 of something?)
- Vocal Mic (Already thinking of an SM7B)
- Group (Choir-esque) micing in an enclosed space
- Something to do a bit of field recording
- Headphones
- Pre-amp

Basically I'm looking for 4-5 microphones that can be used in a variety of settings. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Summer camp = kids+outdoors, right?

Grab a H4, look around for offers or deals. That gives you an XY pair suitable for field recording, and it covers the choir type thing. Also functions as a 4 track.

A pair of 57's, and a 58. That govers your acoustic guitars and gives you some spot vocal mics.

If you're thinking "Nice" vocal mic, I'm glad you're not pointing towards a LDC. If you've the cash an RE20 is a great option, and alot more versatile than the SM7 (but you do loose slut pointz).
Why don't you just knock it off with them negative waves?

What's the budget?

I'd just get one of those Tascam/Fostex/Zoom handheld recorders with built in mics--you can also use this to record any external mics for the particular situations you mention.

I think that and 1 large diaphragm condenser would do it. Sounds like classical, archive recording, for that I would disagree with Jazz and stick with condensers.
