The 2016 Music for All Summer Symposium is FINALLY here! Leadership campers start arriving on campus tomorrow as their adventure begins. Students just like you are coming from all over the country to be a part of “Americas Camp” and more importantly, the best music camp you will ever experience.
Nervous about meeting new people or never been away from home? No worries! Imagine a place where everyone wants to be there and everyone fits in. Let it be to become a better musician, leader in your band, drummer, color guard member, you name it! The electricity is in the air and it is going to be a fantastic week of life-changing experiences.
For those returning to camp, you know what to expect and are chopping at the bits to arrive on campus. However, those new to camp don’t worry. Here is a run down to make your first day at camp run smoothly.
Once you arrive at Ball State find a place to park by the dorm you will be staying in, as it will make your life easier moving your luggage to your room. Walk in and there will be a friendly receptionist that will check you in. Once all settled and your items dropped off, make your way to Park Hall for registration. Here you will get to meet the SWAGs, receive your camp notebook, and any last minute task. Before you know it you will be in a group of strangers who will end up being some of your closest buddies.
Make sure to come fully charged and get plenty of sleep… or try to at least. We know how excited you must be. From all of us here at Music for All, we are ecstatic to have you here as part of the 41 st consecutive Summer Symposium. Safe travels and we will see you soon!
