My child is 18 or older. May they be on their own?

No. Campers must reside with a parent/guardian or with an adult approved by the GRAMMY Museum.

My child has a sibling who attends college or lives in the GRAMMY Camp host city. May my child stay with a sibling?

No. Campers must reside with a parent/guardian or with an adult approved by the GRAMMY Museum.

Who is eligible to apply to GRAMMY Camp?

To be eligible, you must be a U.S. resident currently enrolled in grades 9–12 (public, private, parochial, home school, etc.). If you are graduating from high school in the spring, you are eligible to apply. However, incoming freshman are not eligible.

What does a typical day at GRAMMY Camp look like?

Campers typically begin their day with instruction in their specified career track. In the afternoon, they continue instruction, but also have time to collaborate with campers on various creative projects, within and outside of their tracks.

What is the Music Business track?

This track combines the Concert Production and Marketing & Management career tracks. Students should have a passion for exploring the non-performance roles on an artist's team and the current music industry.

May I apply if I have no music experience?

While experience varies from camper to camper, we encourage anyone seriously interested in music as a career to apply.

How many students attend GRAMMY Camp?

Approximately 75 students are selected for GRAMMY Camp LA.

I attended before and now I'm over 21. Can I be a counselor?

Now that all GRAMMY Camp is non-residential, we no longer will have camp counselors.

GRAMMY Camp tuition is $1,500 for each five-day nonresidential camp. Lunch will be provided.

What kind of Financial Assistance is available?

We encourage everyone who is interested in GRAMMY Camp to apply, regardless of your financial situation.

Is there an Application fee I should know about?

You may either pay by credit card when you submit your online application, or mail a check or money order in with your audition materials made payable to the GRAMMY Museum Foundation. *Please note this application fee is non-refundable even if you decide not to complete the application.

After I complete the online application and submit my Video Essay, am I done?
