We are located in Tallahassee, FL on the campus of Florida State University.

Camp families are responsible for getting campers (and their instruments) to and from camp.  We know that there are so many things to think about when planning your trip to camp but we hope the resources below will make getting here a little easier.

Check-In

All camp check-in’s take place on a Sunday. Please refer to your camp handbook for the date and time for your specific camp. You will sign-up for an arrival time slot when you register. For the best camp experience you need to plan to arrive at camp during your designated check-in. For extenuating circumstances where a camper can not arrive during the designated check-in block, please contact our office.

Check-Out

All camps end with a final performance or event on Saturday (except Marching Band Leadership & Color Guard Camp, and Elementary Music Day Camp which end on a FRIDAY). After the final performance/event, campers meet up with their families and return to the dorm where they will collect their belongings and check-out. Please refer to your camp handbook for the date and time of the final performance for your specific camp.

GENERAL TRAVEL



Airport & Bus Shuttle

Expand All

We are located approximately 15 minutes from the Tallahassee International airport, and the Red Coach bus has an on-campus stop. If you choose to send your camper to Tallahassee via plane or bus, you have the option to arrange for our staff to pick up your child. This service is intended for campers traveling by themselves.

Locations that we have service to and from:
Tallahassee International Airport (TLH)
Greyhound at 112 W Tennessee St
Red Coach Bus Doak Campbell Stadium Stop

How It Works

For Arrivals: Campers will be met by a uniformed member of our staff. They will assist in baggage claim and then bring the camper directly to check-in or to the dorm depending on arrival time. Remember to keep our housing policy in mind when making your travel arrangements. An extra night in the dorm is required if you are arriving the day before check-in, anytime between midnight and 8am on the day of check-in OR departing the day after check-out.

For Departures: While at camp, campers will work with their counselor to be packed and ready to go at the appropriate time for their return trip. We suggest that airline travel be scheduled no earlier than two hours after the end of the final concert.

How To Order Service

The deadline to schedule shuttle service is two weeks prior to the start of your camp.  You will pay for this service and fill out the Special Travel Arrangements Form online.

Price for 2023 service is TBA


Parking Information

Please be aware of all University Parking Lot restrictions.  University Lots are available for parking on weekdays AFTER 10pm and all day Saturday and Sunday. All other times require permits.  Details about where to park for check-in and concerts will be provided in the handbook.  

For additional parking information, see below.

Day-camper parking

Day-campers driving themselves to camp each day should purchase a parking permit from FSU. Visitor parking permits are available for purchase online at the Transportation Services Office located at the Campus Bookstore on Woodward Street. Visitor permits allow you to park in any ungated Faculty/Staff or Student space (there is one right across from the music buildings). Call 850-644-5278 or visit their website for more information.

Overnight-camper parking

Overnight campers who drive themselves to camp do NOT need to purchase a parking permit. Students will receive a free parking permit for the Southgate Parking Garage where they may leave their car for the duration of camp. Students are not allowed to drive during camp and will need to turn in their keys to the dorm staff upon arrival.
