About Methodist University Summer Jam
During this fun-filled week, campers will be challenged by master classes, rehearsals and private lessons. Campers can customize their camp experience by choosing from electives like theatre, conducting, piano, and many others. Campers will also have front-row seating at public concerts presented by faculty and guest musicians. All nightly activities are open for parents and the community to attend. Opportunities will also be available for campers to perform in concerts as well. The camp culminates in grand style with a final concert featuring all camp areas.
Residential and Day Camp Options
The residential camp includes staying in the dorms from Monday morning's check-in until Saturday's noon check-out. Meals will be included in this package. The day camp will also start on Monday, but day campers will only be provided a lunch. They will also perform in the grand finale concert on Saturday morning.
"Mini jam," a half day camp, is a special elementary choir offering for ages 9–10, a great introduction to our day and residential camps!
