Q. Can you breakdown the costs again?   

A. Look at it this way:

  • $TBD divided by 22 days = approximately $TBD per day
    TBD daily ensures contact with a minimum of three professional music educators; insures the daily schedule to include a minimum of one major ensemble, one theory class, one weekly private lesson, one weekly master class and elective classes at the discretion of the student, a camp T-shirt; rooming-in an ASU Residence Hall; contact and interaction with a nationally acclaimed faculty; supervision by an experienced and professional counseling staff; facilities and services at one of the Southeast's most beautiful and scenic campuses - Appalachian State University.
  • 3-tier meal plan as offered by Food Services ($290 - $310 - $330)
    Each camper will have one of the above meal plans amounts placed into their account. At the start of camp, an ID card fee ($7.00) will be deducted from that amount along with banquet and picnic costs (approx $40.00), from then on at each meal purchase your balance decreases by your purchase. Campers are encouraged to only supplement their balance in increments of $20. You can add to the account by calling food services and giving them a credit card. There is no refund of unspent monies at the termination of the camp session.
