UW-Stevens Point - School of Performing Arts

​Details


Point Music Camp is held each summer at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point School of Performing Arts 
and is intended for students entering grades 9-12 as well as students graduating this spring.

Attend this great camp to gain valuable experiences, learn new techniques, and develop long-lasting friendships while experiencing our inspiring university.

Work hard! 

Our mission is to develop and nurture 9-12 grade musicians by helping them discover new literature, techniques, and ideas while fostering confidence and enthusiasm. Instructors are comprised entirely of UW-Stevens Point faculty/artists to ensure the best learning environment for students who are serious about music. No other camp in the state is exclusively staffed with resident university faculty.  Learn more about the faculty here.

Try something new! 

Choose from electives like Composition, Beginning Jazz Improvisation, Music Theory, Movie Music, Music Technology, and Beginning Piano. No experience needed for elective classes.

Immerse Yourself! 

Each student receives one-on-one attention from the UW-Stevens Point teacher of their instrument each day in master classes, technique classes, and lessons.

Have Fun!

Perform on a talent show. Try out yoga for the first time or go on a trip to the Schmeekle Reserve to enjoy nature and read poems. Are you a night owl? Play Zombie night tag in the Noel Fine Arts Center. Go on an ice cream run to Belt's or play board games with other campers and counselors. 

Whether you are an instrumentalist, a vocalist, a composer or a pianist,

Point Music Camp is the place to be this summer!
