Camper Schedule

It is with deep regret that we must inform all participants and families that next week's camp is cancelled. A recent Texas State music camp was forced to close early due to a Covid outbreak and we are concerned for the health and safety of our string camp community. This was a heart breaking decision to make and one that we do not make lightly.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. We know this is a major disappointment and disruption. String Camp is a highlight of our year and we are all very saddened by this turn of events.




Your days will be full of music making and fun at TSUSC! Our camp counselors will be on hand all week to mentor, supervise and assist students during classes, meals, evening activities and at the residence halls.


Each day students will be involved in large ensemble rehearsals, sectional rehearsals and group lessons. The sectional rehearsals will involve the students in groups of reduced size receiving individual instruction on their ensemble music. The group lessons will be taught by the Texas State School of Music faculty and camp staff and will be divided into small groups according to the ability level of the students.



Daily recreational activities balance the musical and educational experiences of the camp. Each student will have the opportunity to enjoy supervised swimming and other entertaining and musically engaging activities.  Each student's well-being at camp is our primary concern.
