Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How ‘good’ do I have to be to attend camp?
A: Assuming that you have at least one year of structured instruction on your instrument and a desire to learn, we have a skilled camp staff that is anxious to teach you. Don’t focus on how good you may be today, but instead work towards getting better.
Q: Do I need to bring my own instrument?
A: Yes, you need to bring an instrument. If you do not own an instrument, ask your director about borrowing one from your school before coming to camp.
Q: Where do I check in?
A: Check in will take place in the lobby of Centennial Residential Hall, where the students will be staying during the camp.
Q: What is the earliest/latest I can check in/out?
A: We understand there are circumstances that may require an early check-in or late check-out. In these situations please contact the Camp Director to make arrangements. Otherwise, it is preferred that you stay within the specified window on the schedule.
Q: What happens if I lose my room key?
A: The keys that are issued allow the camper access a) to the building in which they are staying, b) access into the suite of rooms in which they are staying, and c) access to their personal bedroom. The camper/parent/guardian will be responsible for replacement costs of a lost key. Please note, this cost is very high because of the extent of lock changes that will follow. We will provide a lanyard to help keep track of the keys.
Q: As a residential camper with a car, will I be allowed to leave campus?
A: No. An expectation is that once students are turned over to us, that we will provide a safe and controlled atmosphere. Besides, you’re at camp! Take this opportunity to get to know other campers and enjoy the facilities while improving your performance skills.
Q: Are snacks and games allowed?
A: While we do place limitations on what we ask you to bring, games and snacks are not collectively prohibited. We discourage you from bringing games specifically because a) we would hate for your game console to get damaged or worse while at camp, b) there are activities planned every evening of camp that you will be required to attend, and c) we encourage human interaction while at the camp. This experience is designed to be a fun and engaging learning opportunity.
