Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do I need to wear my camp T-shirt every day?
You only need to wear it on concert days, however many of our campers like to wear this very cool shirt on other days too.
2. Do I need to bring my instrument to camp every day?
Unless you are a singer, play the piano, or the drums, you need to bring your instrument every day to camp! You are in charge of your instrument - UM is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damage to any of your property.
3. I play the drums - what do I do?
We provide drum sets - that is why there is a drum set usage fee. You will need to bring your sticks.
4. I use an amp - what do I do?
Please bring a portable, lightweight amp with a cart to camp every day. You may choose to bring a bigger one on concert days. We have amps available for rent for those of you who arrive by air.
5. I am arriving to camp by plane and staying in the dorm - can you pick me up at the airport?
We can pick you up (and bring you back at the end of camp) as long as you can arrive on the day before our camp sessions begin between 2:00 - 4:00 pm and depart between 7:00 - 9:00 am on the morning after the final concerts. You will need to fly into Miami International Airport, as the University of Miami is only a short 20 minute drive from the airport! If your flight times are not within these hours, contact the camp office and if we cannot provide transportation, then we will arrange for a shuttle service.
6. I am staying in the dorm - can I pick my own room-mate?
Yes you can! Let us know in advance, please.
