How old must I be to attend Music Camp?

Ohio Camp adult students must be at least 16 years of age. Children and Youth ages can be found on the Children’s Camp page.

Should I have music training prior to attending?
No previous instruction is necessary. This camp is for anyone who is interested in taking their musical abilities to the next level. The starting place is less important than the desire to learn and the willingness to be taught. Our goal is simply to help each person attending take “the next step” forward in their pursuit of excellence.
What classes should a first-year student take?
We recommend that students begin their music study with Rudiments and Sight Singing alongside choir participation.
How many classes should I plan to take?
Due to homework assignments and the full schedule, we recommend enrolling in two classes. Due to the additional time required for rehearsal, Chamber Choir students may enroll in one class.
Will I have homework?
Homework is a regular requirement of SCMC classes. Because the schedule is full and study time is minimal, campers should plan to use one class period as a regular study period.
May I change class selections after I’ve enrolled?

Changes to class selections are permitted until April 1 for Ohio Camp, after which a $25 fee will be charged. Desired changes should be directed to the registrar via the Contact Us page. Changes requested by instructors during the camp week will incur no charge.

What choir will I sing in?

SCMC campers participate in both a mixed choir and mass mixed choir. Choir members complete a questionnaire (choir rubric) which guides the process of creating balanced choirs. Students may also participate in the Men’s and Women’s choirs if they care to do so. See the  Choirs page for more details about the choirs.

When is the application deadline?
Applications will be accepted through the beginning of camp. However, applications received after April 1 will incur an additional $25 fee to cover additional processing expenses. Applications received after May 1 will incur an additional $50 fee. We do not guarantee the availability of books and music for students applying after May 1.
What are my options for lodging?

Lodging for the week is available in area homes Sunday – Sunday (8 nights) at Ohio Camp. Lodging before or after these dates may be arranged upon request. If you prefer, you may arrange your own lodging.
