REGISTRATION: Specific registration information will be mailed approximately one week before camp. Visit our Application & Forms page for more.
 
ALL INDIVIDUAL AUDITIONS WILL BE HELD ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON, THE DAY YOU REGISTER. BE PREPARED TO PLAY YOUR INSTRUMENT AFTER YOU REGISTER. ALL AUDITIONS MUST BE ON REGISTRATION DAY. LATE AUDITIONS WILL BE UNACCEPTABLE.
 
PLEASE BRING YOUR COMPLETED HEALTH CERTIFICATE.
 
FINANCES: You have either forwarded your total fee or the amount for deposit. BE SURE to send the remainder of your camp fee and private lesson fee (if desired) prior to June 1, 2013. All students will be furnished meals in the University Cafeteria. No student should carry any great amount of money for travel, or valuables during camp. It will be possible to place money for travel, etc., with the faculty counselor in the dormitory to which you are assigned. PERSONAL CHECKS CANNOT BE CASHED.

Registration will be held in the dorm on Sunday. If you have a roommate selected, plan to register at the same time. If necessary to arrive at a different hour than the above, notify the Music Office. Also, be sure to bring your HEALTH CERTIFICATE. 
 
FINAL DAY: Plan to leave after the final concert on Friday evening, June 20, 2014. The concert will begin at 4:00 p.m. and end approximately at 6:00 p.m. Arrangements should be made to leave after the concert.
 
Be sure to schedule family activities to allow students to remain for the entire camp. Early departure creates hardships for the musical organizations and a feeling of lack of completion for the student, as a main focus of the camp is the final concert.
 
The camp is not responsible for items left after the camp session.
