FAQs

*When is camp?
The dates for camp are different each year. Please visit this year's tab at the top of the page for a list of this year's dates.

*How do I register for camp?
Click on the "Forms" tab at the top of the screen. Print, fill out and mail that form (along with your payment) to the address listed on that page. You can also print a medical form from that page to bring with you to camp.

*I'm going into the 9th grade. Which week can I attend?
Lucky for you, you can come to both weeks! Middle School Music Week is for students entering 5th grade-9th grade. High School Music Week is for students entering 9th grade-20 years old.

*What do I need to know about registration?
Registration will take place from 2-3pm on the Sunday that camp starts and will be held in the Education Building. (For camp dates, click on this year's tab at the top of the page.) You will need to have a completed Medical Form (see the "Forms" tab) and payment. During registration, we will confirm your payment and you will be assigned to a cabin.  We will begin promptly at 2pm and try our best to make things go as quickly and smoothly as possible!

*I heard something about a concert. Can you tell me more?
During each week of camp, we prepare to give a concert of the things we've learned (choral music and things learned in classes). Campers and staff will perform that concert on the last day at the conclusion of camp. During High School Music Week, we will also perform a concert at a local church on Wednesday night. For more details and locations of these concerts, visit this year's tab at the top of the page.

*What should I wear while I'm at camp?
Campers should plan to dress for summer weather and lots of walking. We will not allow campers to wear clothing with inappropriate wording or pictures. Because this is a co-ed camp, please bring clothing with appropriate coverage that is modest and respectful and would not cause members of the opposite sex to be tempted. Campers wearing clothing that is inappropriate in any way will be asked to change immediately. High School campers can bring a nicer outfit (church attire) to wear for our Wednesday night concert.  

*I want to work at camp. What should I do?
Our staff members must be friendly, possess good leadership qualities and be in love with Jesus. Being on staff at Truett Camp is fun, but it's also exhausting and a LOT of hard work, so you must be willing to put forth a great amount of effort, both before and during camp. Those interested in joining our staff should contact us at truettcampmusicweeks@gmail.com for more information.

*What if I don't like music?
Well, then Truett Camp Music Weeks probably wouldn't be a good fit for you. Truett Camp offers a Boys' Camp and a Girls' Camp. Call the camp directly for information about these weeks or visit the Truett Baptist Camp website at truettcamp.webs.com.

*What if I love music, but don't know much about it?
Excellent musicianship or great musical knowledge is not a requirement for camp. We welcome students with all calibers of musicianship and we will help you learn more!

*I'm in band. Can I bring my instrument?
YES!! We offer instrumental ensembles and opportunities for performance.

*Can I bring my cell phone to camp?
High School Music Week students are allowed to keep cell phones in their possession. Please understand that we are trusting campers to keep them put away. If we see them, we will take them until the end of the week. If you need to make a phone call, simply ask your counselor and they will help you do what you need to do appropriately.

*What if there's an emergency?
All staff members will have a cell phone with them at all times. Should an emergency arise, a staff member will contact your parents/guardians ASAP.  Parents and guardians, if there's an emergency at home, you can call the camp office at 828.389.8828.

Sure! Campers will have a designated parking lot for their cars. Cars are not to be moved during the week unless you need to report to work, school, appointments or sports obligations.

*Can I bring a friend with me to camp?
Absolutely! The more the merrier! Just have your friend submit a registration form and fill out a medical form to bring with you.
