We know that as a parent, you want your child to have safe, enjoyable, educational experiences. Music for All’s mission is to create, provide and expand positively life-changing experiences through music for all. We are committed to providing an exciting summer camp, with outstanding instruction with distinguished faculty, and a safe, away-from-home campus experience.
As a parent, you want information before making the decision to send your child to camp and details about the experience after enrolling. We strive to provide you with as much info as possible throughout the experience.
“Our student attended the Leadership weekend and the symposium. We figured up the cost per day, and it is a bargain at $114.00 per day for lodging, meals, plus the exceptional music instruction and team activities, plus concerts every night, and wonderful speakers. As a family, we cannot take a vacation for that price!" - Martha, Indiana; Parent of 2010 Symposium student
A shuttle service will be available from several Indianapolis and Muncie-area transportation hubs. You can reserve your students shuttle online!

Consider it a bonus that you will be flying in to a brand-new facility with streamlined security checkpoints, plentiful and convenient parking, great shopping and dining options, and colorful public art.
Supervision and Medical Staff
The counselors for the week are members of our SWAG Team. They will be with students the entire week to answer any questions you have and to help students get the most out of your experience at camp. They will be present at all clinics/events and will have rooms on each floor to help you 24-hours a day. The SWAG Team is made up of college students, band directors and other adults who have volunteered their time to make sure that you have the most exceptional experience of your summer. In addition, members of the Symposium faculty and MFA staff will be available to answer any questions or assist you during your stay.
REGISTERED NURSES will be on hand during the week. In order to ensure the safety of all students on campus, all students on prescription medication (with the exception of insulin, inhalers and bee sting medication) are required to turn the medication over to the camp nurse during registration. Please note that the nurse cannot distribute aspirin unless it is given to him/her at registration.
In order to get information to campers as timely and effectively as possible, details about the camp after enrollment will be sent by email. It is imperative that you provide a current, working email address for participants and a parent (for students) when registering. Info to be emailed includes acknowledgement of registration and final packet of maps, times, check-in and what-to-bring details.
