Payment Policy

All fees are due in full at the time of registration, OR by May 26, 2023 if you are enrolling in a monthly-installment payment plan.  For registrations created after May 26, all fees are due in full at the time of registration.  Campers with scholarship checks registering after May 26, or schools registering groups with scholarship checks after May 26, should contact the camp office for assistance with registration. No camper may check-in to camp with an unpaid balance.

Camp Deposit

$100.00 of the total fee for EACH camp is considered a non-refundable deposit. Your space at camp is not reserved or guaranteed until this deposit has been paid. This deposit is not refundable under any circumstance, including medical related cancellations or withdrawals.

Camp Rules

Nothing is more important to us than the well-being of our campers. We are vigilant about emotional safety as well as physical safety; about creating a place where campers feel safe, supported in reaching their goals and accomplishing challenges, and where everyone can have fun.  To this end, the FSU Summer Music Camps requires all campers and parents to read and agree to the Camper Conduct Contract as part of our required camp forms.


During registration you will be asked to sign two waivers: Statement of Voluntary Consent and Financial Responsibility Agreement. PDF versions of these waivers can be accessed using the provided links.
