About Summerjam!

Methodist University's music department is proud to sponsor Summerjam! music camp, now in its 32nd year! Our beautiful 617-acre campus is located 5 miles off I-95 and just 10 minutes from Fayetteville, our three-time Hall of Fame All-American City.


Methodist University Summerjam! is open to all musicians ages 11-18 who want to enhance their musicianship and interact with other students from across the state and region. In order to have the best possible camp experience, instrumental and vocal students need to have had at least one full year of prior instruction or experience in music. Students develop their music skills through large ensemble participation, master classes, lessons, academic classes, and concerts.

Camp Life

SummerJam 2016 AttendeeOur camp faculty consists primarily of MU music professors with support staff made up of area music teachers and MU music students. Music ensembles make up the main part of the day schedule (Band, Chorus, Orchestra, and Piano) along with additional elective classes. A full of list of elective choices and an elective preference sheet will be provided after you are registered and are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Evening activities provide our campers with a chance to relax and socialize with their fellow musicians. Each night there is a free activity, movie night, volleyball, ice cream social, talent show, or a faculty concert.

Residential & Day Camp Options
