Summer Music Camp

Summer music camp

Welcome to Carson-Newman University’s Summer Music Camp! The camp will run June 11-14, 2023, and will provide a unique opportunity for students to connect with their faith in a meaningful way, while also honing their musical skills.

Arrivals will be scheduled between 3:00 pm-5:00 pm on Sunday (the first day of camp). Camp begins at 6:00 pm, and meals begin with breakfast on Monday for overnight participants. Parents are welcome to help their student(s) check-in, get settled in the dorm, and take their student out for dinner before our opening session at 6:00 pm.

Classes generally run from 8:00 am-11:30 am, 12:30-4:30 pm, and 6:00-8:00 pm. Finalized class times may vary slightly. Dinners are included in the camp price, beginning with dinner on Monday. Students may bring their lunch or purchase a lunch card for $10 from our camp office.

Overnight participants will be housed in Carson-Newman dorms. Male and female dorm houses will be separate. Our camp instructors and staff will supervise participants at all times. Dorm rooms are double occupancy. You may indicate your roommate preference on the registration form. If you do not have a roommate preference, a roommate of similar age will be assigned to you.

All meals will be served in the Stokely Memorial Cafeteria on campus. For overnight participants, the camp price includes three meals a day (M, T, and W). For day participants (those not staying with us overnight), three dinners are included in the camp price (M, T, and W). Day participants can bring a lunch from home or purchase a cafeteria lunch card for $10 from the camp office.

We will refund 50% of the registration fee. The remaining 50% will be retained as a non-refundable deposit.

After April 15
We will retain 100% of the registration fee – no refunds.
