New for 2014

Everyone's excited about our camp options for 2014! Campers will enjoy all the benefits of a full music camp experience, and the convenience of an optional residential camp choice. The best news is that we have re-vamped SummerJam! and passed those savings on to all campers this summer!


  • Methodist University Summer Jam is open to ages 11-18 (day camp or residential).
  • All instrumental students need to have had at least one full year of prior instruction.
  • Choral/vocal students need to have some prior vocal and/or instrumental experiences with a desire to make music in a choir setting.

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.


Lunch is included in the cost of the camp for all campers, and will be served in Methodist University’s full-service cafeteria. Residential campers will benefit from breakfast, lunch, and dinner as part of their package. The only exception is a Wednesday night T-shirt social that will include pizza for all campers. Parents and other family members wanting to eat a meal with their campers may do so for a small fee paid at the register of the cafeteria.


This year, we have lowered our rates for all students! The cost for all day campers is $175, which includes all camp activities including daily classes, concerts, activities, insurance, and the SummerJam! T-shirt.

The cost for the optional residential camp for our campers from outside of Fayetteville is $350, which includes all of the day camp activities, plus breakfast and dinner for each days of the camp through the camp concert.

Private lessons are available at an additional cost of $40 per 45-minute private lesson.

Due Dates for Registration

  • Full payment for the day or residential camp is due by June 13, 2014. Full payment and any remaining balance for the day camp ($175), or residential camp ($350) is due by June 13.
  • After June 13 there is an additional fee of $25 for the day camp (total of $200), or $50 for the residential camp (total of $400). This is a hard deadline so that we can secure final numbers for the camp.
  • Checks should be made payable to MU SummerJam! 2014, and must be fully paid before attending camp.
