Youth Music Camp

Youth Music Camp

Outstanding Musical & Exploratory Experiences for Young Musicians!

No other camp is designed to meet the needs of the young and beginning musician as our Youth Music Camp which is designed for musical exploration, experimentation, growth, and fun for musicians of a variety of levels of ability and interest.

Campers receive an individual lesson, daily master classes, select from a variety of music classes, and participate in the production of a musical. All campers participate in musicianship and chorus. All instrumentalists are enrolled in band or orchestra.

Any camper participating in band or orchestra should have at least one full year of training on their instrument to ensure their success and enjoyment in the experience. Each camper also receives private instruction in master classes. Youth Music Camp is an excellent opportunity for young musicians to immerse themselves in music and explore the opportunities that await them!

Activities include:

  • Band, orchestra, and choral experiences
  • Exploratory courses and experiences
  • Performance of a musical
  • Recitals
  • Final Concert

Campers may purchase an additional individual lesson on their primary instrument, on a limited basis depending on the instructor's schedule at $20 per half hour.

Our Staff

All campers are supervised 24 hours per day by camp counselors (all are MU music education students), and faculty (MU music faculty, MU alumni, area music teachers);we keep our campers involved in supervised activities throughout the day. All camp counselors live in the residence halls with the campers! The ratio of supervision is one counselor to every 10 participants. If you include teaching faculty, that ratio becomes one adult to every three campers. Your child will benefit from this wonderful enrichment program!
