EXPLORE CAMP LIFE
Music isn’t the only reason that you come to camp! It is also a chance to experience what living and learning in a collegiate setting is all about. We understand that for some of you, this will be the first time that you, your son or your daughter will be away from home for an extended period of time, so be sure to read our Parent & Camper Handbook. It will be available online soon. The handbook contains important information to help you prepare for camp.
All of our camps take place on the UTSA campus in San Antonio, TX. Music classes will take place in the UTSA Music Building and UTSA Recital Hall. All campers are housed in the Alvarez Hall dormitories located on the UTSA Main Campus.
Day Campers - Students who attend camp as a day camper must be staying at home or with a San Antonio relative over the age of 21. Day campers are required to attend all rehearsals, performances, and classes and should plan to attend camp daily from 8:00am-5:00pm and some evenings from 7:00pm-9:30pm. Recreation activities are not required for day campers, but they are certainly welcome to attend any camp activity they choose.
Overnight Campers - Overnight campers stay in the Alvarez Hall dormitories. Alvarez Hall is an air-conditioned, private dormitory just a five minute walk from the College of Music buildings. Campers are supervised by our resident staff of camp counselors. Campers are welcomed and encouraged to submit roommate requests. However, these requests must be filled out on your registration form. For more information, please visit our dorms and roommates page.
Our evening recreation activities are designed to let campers take a break from their instruments and spend some social time with new friends. Each evening there will be a free recreation activity; events such as movie nights, attending faculty recitals, ice creams socials, sports and more. Some evenings there will also be an optional activity for an additional fee (Fiesta Texas). This option will be made available to all campers and will be assessed to your tuition at the time of online registration.
