42nd Successful Season. Select from 2-, 3-, and 4-week sessions.
Open to boys and girls ages 10–18.
The Eastern U.S. Music Camp is conducted on the Colgate University campus in beautiful Central New York State. This popular program, beginning its 42nd year, is designed to provide opportunities and enrichment in all areas of music. Social and recreational activities also are an integral part of the curriculum. The total experience is rewarding — musically and socially.
This well-balanced program offers young people between the ages of 10 and 18 the opportunity to pursue musical studies through individual, class, and group instruction; to perform a wide range of instrumental and choral works in ensemble and concert; and to participate in supervised sports and other informal "fun" activities. The program builds confidence, teaches concentration, offers social opportunities, and helps develop sensitivity to, and pride in, the beautiful things in life.
See: Eastern U.S. Music Camp website for photos from last summer, the many choices in the music schedule and the fun recreation schedule, applications for resident/day enrollment (first serve-first come basis), and "chatty" personal interviews from parents/students. This is a unique experience on one of the most beautiful college campuses in the country that provides confidence, fun, and an excellent music education for students of various abilities.
Suggestion: Enroll in this popular program while space is still available.
Careers in music are not necessarily the goal of students attending the Eastern U.S. Music Camp. The experience is one that will be remembered and valued throughout life in any career.
