Registering for Camp
Registration stays open until two-week before the start of camp OR until a wait list forms for a particular instrument. See below for more information on wait lists.
Wait lists may form once we reach our capacity for a particular instrument or for an entire camp. Common waitlists are for Violin and Cello at String Orchestra Camp, Trumpets at both Band Camps, Saxophones and Trumpets at both Jazz Camps.
If there is a waitlist for your camp or instrument at the time that you go to register, you will need to call our office (850-644-9934) to be placed on the waitlist instead. Wait lists are first-come, first-serve; no deposit is required to be on a wait list. When cancellations occur we will call the first person on the wait list and offer that person the spot. They will have 48 hours to register for the spot before we move to the next person on the list.
The FSU College of Music and the Southgate Campus Centre are all accessible to students with disabilities. For assistance with registration, or to make an accommodation for participation, please call 850-644-9934 at least 10 days prior to the start of camp.
Please read all camp payment policies before registering for camp.
A non-refundable deposit of $100.00 per camp is required at the time of registration. This deposit is applied toward the camp tuition. Your space at camp is not reserved or guaranteed until this deposit has been paid. This deposit is not refundable under any circumstance.
The balance of camp tuition & housing fees is due no later than two weeks prior to the start of your camp. Full or partial payments are accepted at any time after the camper is registered.
