Housing, Fees and Costs
The Student cost for each Kamp is $1075.00. This fee includes all classes, concerts, workshops, lifetime friendships, meals and Maryville College dorm style housing for Six Nights. Off Campus rates include all the above except the bed space.
All Dorm rooms are based on Double Occupancy. You can order a private room with a possible shared bath for a $400 upcharge. There are no refunds for the private room should you want to cancel it or the entire Kamp.
ALL rooms will be assigned on a first come basis. We will fill Dorms Lloyd, Carnegie, Pearson's and Beason first. Then overflow to Gamble and Davis. If you have a preference you can note it on the registration in the "Special Request" area or Roommate Section.
Off campus rates are available but we strongly suggest you stay on campus for the full feel and effect of the Kamps. There is a $82.00 deduction for staying off campus.
Spouses and friends accompanying students are called Kompanions and their rate is less though they cannot attend any of the Main Classes or Master Classes. They can however enjoy all meals, bed, concerts, jam sessions, some afternoon events and the tours that Mountain Challenge offers.
Master Class - This is a class that you sign up for at Kamp, not separated by level or instrument, with one of the Master Instructors. Maximum of eight students per Master Class. You don't have to be a master on your instrument to take part in the Master Class.

Our Kamp's class structure is unique and different from any other music camp in the world. When you register for the Kamp with your instrument of choice, you aren’t just signing up for one instructor - as is the case with most music camps. You are signing up for all the instructors for your instrument. You are divided by level and rotate through each of the instructor’s classes. The “Beginner 101” class does not rotate. “Beginner 101” students stay with the same instructor through the week.
If an instrument has one instructor, the student stays with that one instructor for the two main classes each day.
Final Schedule Subject To Change.
Kampers (Students) can enjoy all classes and seminars, concerts, jams, break out sessions. Everything the Kamp has to offer.
Kompanions may attend the various morning and afternoon jams, breakout sessions, concerts and meals with the exception of the afternoon Master Classes and Ensemble Groups. Kompanions may not attend the Main Classes or the afternoon Master Classes or Ensemble Groups.
Kampers only, no Kompanions, in the Master Classes or the 2-Hour Main Classes.
