And don't forget to save the date - we end camp with a concert where every camper performs with your class!

For Middle School and High School Campers, ages 11 and above

Are you from out of town - or - do you live in South Florida but want to see what it's like to go to a sleep away camp? Our full-time program is open to campers ages 11 and above. Coordinated by our amazingly talented Dorm Counselors, you will spend lots of time playing music and hanging out with kids like you who are seriously into music, plus enjoy fun camp activities too!


After the camp classes are over for the day, you are met by your dorm counselor. You go back to the dorm to rest and relax until dinner. All dorm campers go to dinner together, and then after dinner our counselors plan various activities. Each activity is supervised by one of our (totally awesome) counselors. All campers receive a pass to use the UM Wellness Center (on-campus fitness center with an indoor pool, racquet ball, indoor track, etc.). Campers can also use the evening time to get their practicing in. We have fun activities such as: jam sessions, game night, scavenger hunt, and more... On the weekend, we use our bus to take us to places like the beach, the movies, bowling, and ice skating!


HOW MUCH DOES THIS COST? The cost is $1275 (A non-refundable housing fee is required at the time of registration to reserve your room. This deposit will be applied to your housing balance.)

WHAT DOES THE DORM ROOM PROVIDE AND WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING? The dorm is air-conditioned and there is free WIFI. There is a communal bathroom on the floor. There is one floor for our boys and one for our girls. Sheets and towels are provided (bring a pillow and light blanket). There is a laundry room and the camp provides laundry detergent, so that you can wash your clothes. After you register for the Dorm Program, we will send you our complete Dorm Packet with what to bring, health forms, and dorm program rules.

WILL I HAVE A ROOMMATE? Everyone has a roommate. We will match you up with someone close in age or if you come with a friend, you can request to be roommates.

WHO ARE THE COUNSELORS? Our counselors are college students or college graduates. They are in charge of what you do after our camp classes are over for the day. They are all musicians too - so they arrange our jam sessions, can help you with your songwriting/composition assignments, will remind you to get your practice time in, and more! They can give you an inside look into what it's like to be a college music major!
