Do you provide transportation to camp?
No. Parents are responsible for getting their child to and from the camp location on the campus of Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL.
Do you pick up students from the airport or bus station?
Yes. We offer a shuttle service from the Tallahassee Regional Airport (TLH), the Greyhound Bus Station and W Tennessee St & Woodward Ave (Saint Thomas More Cathedral) for the Red Coach Bus. Transportation to and from these locations is $35.00 round trip for pickup/drop-off that take place between 8am-10:00pm. If you need a pick-up or drop-off between the hours of 10:00pm-8am the cost is $50.00 round trip. There is no discounted price for one way, though you can request transport in only one direction. Shuttle service must be arranged no later than 2 weeks prior to the start of your camp. Click on this link to download the Shuttle Service Request Form.
Can I request a roommate?
Yes. You may request up to three other campers to room with you. We will do our best to room you with your preferred roommate(s), though it is not guaranteed. If you do not have a roommate to request, assignments are made according to age. You can request a roommate using our supplemental camp forms AFTER you are registered for camp.
How do I make a payment?
Payments can be made online or by check or money order. Please note that FSU assesses a transaction fee on all credit card transactions. If you wish to avoid this fee, please pay with a check.
To Pay With A Check or Money Order:
Checks should be made payable to: Florida State University
Please put the campers name and the camp they are attending in the memo portion of the check
Check should be mailed to:

To Pay Online With A Credit Card:
Go to http://fees.fsu.edu. Select "I do not have an FSUID but do have a Customer Number". Your Customer Number was included on your camp confirmation, which you received when you registered. Enter the Customer Number and proceed as directed.
Online payments take up to 48 hours to post to your account. If your camp begins on a Sunday, and you make a payment online during the 48 hours before check-in, please bring proof of your online payment with you to check-in. Payments made online after noon on Friday will not be reflected in your account by the time check-in takes place.
What happens if I can't arrive at my camp during the designated check in times?
To ensure the best camp experience possible for your student, we strongly encourage you to arrive at camp during the designated check-in. There are some activities which take place on check-in day which may affect your placement within an ensemble, your selection of an elective class, the availability of private teachers and more. If there are extenuating circumstances which prevent you for arriving on time, we can arrange for an early or late check in based on your travel plans. After you are registered, please call the camp office to make special arrangements.
What if I can't attend all of the days of camp or need to leave camp early?
Each camp is designed to be attended for the full length of time. Because other musicians in the ensembles are counting on your participation, we recommend that camp be attended on all dates listed. If you have an extenuating circumstance, please contact us so we can work with you on the schedule. Sorry, no reduction in camp price is possible if you can not attend the full length of camp.
Do I need to bring an instrument with me?
Yes. All students must bring their instrument. If you do not have your own, we suggest borrowing one from your school. We know that it can be difficult to transport large instruments, especially if you are traveling by airplane, but unfortunately, FSU does not have any to loan out. If you can not travel with your instrument, or if it is cost prohibitive, you may be able to ship your instrument to our offices prior to your arrival. Please call us if you have concerns about transporting your instrument.
Are there any discounts available?
Yes. We offer several types of discounts. Please see our discount page for descriptions, guidelines & application instructions.

I am making a recording for an Ability Discount or an Audition. What format does it need to be in?
Recordings can be on cassette tape or CD only. No DVD's. No video tapes. For a CD, the recording needs to be playable in either a CD player or in a computer. The instructors should be able to put the disc into their device (either CD player or computer) and the CD should start playing automatically, or they should be able to click on the track and have it start playing through a media player. No specific audio format is required, as long as it plays! Please also read the Frequently Asked Questions section under Ability Discounts.
