Our mission is Coaching Personal Greatness One Lesson At A Time. One way we do that is through through our summer internship program for Rising Senior campers and post-high school former campers, which provide focused and hardworking young musicians the opportunity to deepen their musical skills and identity while gaining real world experience in a fast paced and high quality work environment.

For students who have graduated from high school. Get real world experience working in the music industry! Our camp has many outstanding veteran students who have attended our camp for multiple summers, completed the internship program and have gone on to study music and non-music related majors in college. The interns help run the daily operations of the camp, guide families during orientation, coach younger students and run backstage operations during the final showcases. It is a serious job and we select students who display maturity, a willingness to work hard, reliability and a dedication to the mission of the camp, which is supporting the musical development and personal greatness of the younger campers.
