Our Summerjam! camp looks forward to returning in 2023. We are so eager to host everyone on campus! We WANT to make music with you AGAIN!
If you need a reminder of how great this camp is for our community, go to our Facebook page to see our videos, pictures, and camp newsletter! We intend to come back even better and stronger than before!
Methodist University’s music department is proud to sponsor SummerJam! music camp, now in its 34th year! Our beautiful 617-acre campus is located 5 miles (10 minutes) off I-95 in Fayetteville, N.C., our three-time Hall of Fame All-American City.
SummerJam! is open to all musicians ages 11-18 who want to enhance their musicianship and interact with other student musicians 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.
Our 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 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 different free activity leading to the big camp concert event: Here’s a quick look at our evening/concert activities:
- Monday: Pelican Ice Walk
- Tuesday: Movie/Ice Cream Social
- Wednesday: Game/Activities Night
- Thursday: Talent Show
- Friday: Small Ensemble/Elective Concert
- Saturday: Camp concert
To be determined.
