Do you provide transportation to camp?

No. Parents are responsible for getting their child to and from the camp location on the campus of Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL.

Do you pick up students from the airport or bus station?

Yes. We offer a shuttle service from the Tallahassee Regional Airport (TLH), the Greyhound Bus Station and the Red Coach Bus at Doak Campbell Stadium.  Read more about Shuttle Service.

Can I request a roommate?

Yes. You may request up to two other campers to room with you. We will do our best to room you with your preferred roommate(s), though it is not guaranteed. If you do not have a roommate to request, assignments are made according to age.  Roommate requests are done online through your camp forms AFTER you have registered for camp.

How do I make a payment?

Payments can be made online through your Active portal.

To Pay With A Check or Money Order:

Checks should be made payable to: Florida State University
Please put the campers name and the camp they are attending in the memo portion of the check

Check should be mailed to:
FSU Summer Music Camps
PO Box 3061180
Tallahassee, FL 32306-1180

What happens if I can't arrive at my camp during the designated check in times?

To ensure the best camp experience possible for your student, we strongly encourage you to arrive at camp during the designated check-in. There are some activities which take place on check-in day which may affect your placement within an ensemble, your selection of an elective class, the availability of private teachers and more.

If there are extenuating circumstances which prevent you for arriving on time, we can arrange for an early or late check in based on your travel plans. There will be a place in your camp forms to request a late arrival.

What if I can't attend all of the days of camp or need to leave camp early?

Each camp is designed to be attended for the full length of time. Because other musicians in the ensembles are counting on your participation, we recommend that camp be attended on all dates listed.

If you have an extenuating circumstance, please contact us so we can work with you on the schedule. Sorry, no reduction in camp price is possible if you can not attend the full length of camp.

Do I need to bring an instrument with me?

Yes. All students must bring their instrument. If you do not have your own, we suggest borrowing one from your school. We know that it can be difficult to transport large instruments, especially if you are traveling by airplane, but unfortunately, FSU does not have any to loan out. If you can not travel with your instrument, or if it is cost prohibitive, you may be able to ship your instrument to our offices prior to your arrival. Please call us if you have concerns about transporting your instrument.

Are there any discounts available?

Yes. We offer several types of discounts. Please see our discount page for descriptions, guidelines & application instructions.

How do I register for camp?

Camp registration begins online on January 10, 2022  for all camps except the Piano Institute*.  
Piano Institute requires an audition.  Please visit that camp page for details on auditions.

What happens after I register?

Updated information will be available soon.

When are payments for camp due?

$100.00 of each campers fee (per camp) is non-refundable.  

Families can choose to pay in full when registering OR enroll in a payment plan. Payment plans are auto-drafted and must be paid in full by May 16*.  The first payment of a minimum $100.00 must be paid at the time of registration and is non-refundable.   Campers registering after May 16 must pay in full at the time of registration.  

*Marching Band Leadership Camp registrations must be paid in full by June 12.  Directors or parents who need assistance with payments for their student(s) for this camp due to school boosters payments should contact our office for assistance.

How do I sign-up for an elective?

Some of our camps offer elective classes. If your camp offers an elective(s) you will be provided with an elective preference form as part of your supplemental forms packet.  This happens after you are registered.
