Welcome to the 2017 Mansfield University Summer Youth Music Camp!

We are excited that you have decided to join us for a week of musical adventures.This unique music camp is designed for young students to experience music making in a variety of ways while nurturing and sharing their love of music with peers. Throughout the week, all campers will sing in the camp choir and participate in a full musical theatre production. Campers will also have the opportunity to play in the band, orchestra or jazz band, take exploratory courses which include beginning instruction in harp, percussion, violin, piano, and voice as well as computer/electronic music and improvisation. Campers will also receive a lesson and daily master classes on their primary instrument and have the opportunity to participate in a camper recital.

The counselor to camper ratio is 10:1 and all campers are supervised 24 hours a day. All Youth Music Camp counselors are recent graduates or current music education students at MU and will provide specialized care for your young musician Concerts on Friday night (featuring the musical theatre production and small chamber ensembles) and Saturday morning (band, choir, jazz band and orchestra) will showcase the hard work and musical accomplishments of the campers.

We are looking forward to a week of great music making in the beautiful endless mountains of Pennsylvania! We hope you can join us at the 2016 Summer Youth Music Camp at Mansfield University.
