This page will be updated periodically with forms and information for students and directors. This area of the website contains information about what to bring, auditions, shuttles, housing, registration, meals, and other important camper information. In an effort to make things easier to find we have utilized the menus to the left to help you navigate to important information.
Early in June there will be a final communication posted here as well. In order to get information to campers as timely and effectively as possible, details about the camp after enrollment will be sent by email. Please be sure that to provide us with a working email address for participants and a parent (for students) when registering.
Participants are able to receive mail while at camp. A member of Music for All or the SWAG Team will deliver all mail directly to the participant’s room within the Residence Hall.
NOTE TO PARENTS: The University receives several large shipments of mail per day, so a letter or package may not be processed the day it arrives. We advise you to send mail EARLY so that it will get to your child while they are on campus! The letter/package should be addressed as follows:
