Camp Features

Excitement For Beginning Musicians
The Elementary Music Day Camp brings all of the experience and excitement of our camps to beginning musicians and is designed to help children develop a life-long love of music.  Camp takes place from 8:00am – 4:00pm on Monday - Thursday, and 8:00am-@12:00pm on Friday.

Camp Activities
Campers will take part in vocal, instrument, and movement activities.  Campers will sing, play instruments, do crafts, move to music, create music, and even learn the basics of reading and writing music.  Campers will also have the opportunity to experience music and instruments from around the world. 

A Performance On Our Biggest Stage
Camp will conclude with a final performance in Ruby Diamond Concert Hall.  Each camper will be limited to 2 audience tickets per camper per event due to hall capacity restrictions.  Campers will receive their performance tickets at check-in.

The Fun Is Included
Instruments, music, and all other activity materials are provided.

Covid-19 Planning
The FSU Summer Music Camps will be following guidelines and recommendations for best practices from the Centers for Disease Control and Florida State University to institute protocols for mitigation of spread of COVID-19. Click here to read more.
