To balance the musical and educational experiences of Summer Music Camp, there is a brief opportunity each afternoon for optional activities. Camp students will have time to relax, visit the game room or bookstore, or have a snack. Other popular activities at camp include evening movies on campus and a party on the last night. Activities are under the guidance of the Music Camp Staff.
Each band student is expected to have his or her own instrument and bring a folding metal music stand. A limited number of musical instruments such as concert percussion equipment and guitars will be available from the Department of Music.
You may cancel your application for Summer Music Camp by June 2 (two weeks prior to the first day of camp) and receive a refund of camp costs less the $50.00 non-refundable registration deposit.
No money will be refunded for any reason after the two-week deadline. Students arriving late for camp or leaving early are not eligible for refunds. The Camp Membership is not transferable to anyone else.
Camp students, except day campers, will be housed in air-conditioned NORTHWEST dormitories and will eat all meals on campus. Campers must bring their own sheets, towels, and pillow from home. Camp students will be housed two per room. You may wish to find a roommate who is also attending camp. Housing for Friday night, at the end of camp, is not provided. Meals begin with dinner on Sunday and end with Lunch on Friday (15 meals). While staying in the NORTHWEST dormitories, all camp students will be under the supervision of the Music Camp Staff. Staff counselors will live in the dormitories with the campers and monitor all aspects of camp life.
In the event of an illness or injury to a student at camp, the staff will escort that student to the Summer Music Camp Registered Nurse for prompt, professional medical care. In the unlikely event that a student would need to see a physician or visit a hospital, immediate transportation and an escort would be provided. Parents will be notified accordingly. Costs resulting from a doctor visit, prescription medication, x-rays, lab work or hospital treatments are the responsibility of the parent.
After your application has been received and accepted, we will forward additional material to you. This will include when and where to come, what to bring, a medical history/permission for treatment form, a map, a sample schedule, and all the other information needed to plan your trip.
