COVID-19 UPDATE
The health and safety of our campers, parents, faculty, and staff is our highest priority. At this time, student enrollment and program planning are underway and plans for Summer Music Camp are still on schedule. We understand that it is difficult for families to evaluate summer plans during this uncertain time. In response, we would like for you to know the following:

  • In the event that the UNCG Summer Music Camp must be cancelled, you will be issued a full refund.
  • In the event that your family needs to cancel participation, we will be issued a refund in accordance with the established Refund Policy until two (2) weeks prior to the start of camp. This timeline may be adjusted as we work with our families that have coronavirus concerns, school rescheduling issues, or signs of illness as we draw nearer to our start dates.
  • For families who are interested in registering but are hesitant due to the unfolding circumstances, we are offering the option to enroll or accept a waiting list offer with no deposit or payment required until after April 15. You will be guaranteed a spot at camp and do not need to make a financial commitment at this time.

UNCG and the UNCG Summer Music Camp are prepared to alter our policies and procedures further should the situation change. We will communicate any updates when the time is appropriate. Thank you all for continuing to be a part of our summer music community.

Please feel free to contact us at smcamp@uncg.edu if you have specific questions. We will do our best to address your concerns. Stay safe and healthy.

Junior Band PercussionThe University of North Carolina at Greensboro is pleased to again announce plans for Summer Music Camp, the largest university music camp in America! This summer we will offer two one-week camps, serving over 2,040 musicians, with programs in band, mixed chorus, orchestra, and piano.

Students at camp are under the leadership and guidance of the artist-faculty of the UNCG School of Music, long recognized as a national leader in musical excellence. In addition, distinguished music teachers, performers, and conductors from throughout the state and nation will join the staff of Summer Music Camp to ensure that each student receives the highest quality instruction available.

Summer Music Camp TrumpetEnsemble performance in band, chorus, or orchestra will be emphasized and each camp will conclude on Friday evening with a concert for parents, relatives, friends, and area residents. Classes in basic musicianship, as well as recital performances and sectional rehearsals by the camp staff members will serve to balance the total program. A private lesson on your instrument, in voice, or on piano is an available option to all campers.

The UNCG Summer Music Camp application process is entirely ONLINE! Parents must make the online application for their child. You must utilize a laptop computer or a desktop computer. Sorry, your tablet or smartphone will not work for the application process! Allow two weeks for the processing of your online application.
