My child is 18 or older. Can 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. Can 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. citizen 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 sorts of learning and performing experiences are included?

  • Forum discussions, Workshops, Clinics, Panels, and Master Classes with Top Industry Professionals
  • Individual and small group instruction
  • Interactivity between various Career Tracks
  • Media, performance and recording projects
  • Music business best practices: How to make a living in the music business

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 and approximately 30 students are selected for GRAMMY Camp Nashville.

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

Now that all GRAMMY Camps are non-residential, we no longer will have camp counselors. Check out other ways to get involved!

What is the program cost and what does it include?

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

For those living in the greater Nashville area, GRAMMY Camp Nashville tuition is $100. This $1,400 instant rebate is made possible through the generous support of Journeys and Converse. The tuition for students attending the Nashville session from outside the greater Nashville area remains $1,500. We define the greater Nashville area as the area within 50 miles of downtown Nashville.

The $25 application fee is applied as a credit toward camp tuition payment at all camps.

What kind of Financial Assistance is available?

Needs–based financial assistance is available and interested applicants must complete the Financial Assistance Form in addition to completing all other application materials. We encourage everyone who is interested in GRAMMY Camp to apply, regardless of your financial situation. Over the past few years, over 70% of those who have applied for financial aid have received some form or assistance, in the form of either a partial or full scholarship.

Is there an Application fee I should know about?

Yes, there is a one–time $25 application fee for GRAMMY Camp. Please note – even if you are applying for more than one session, career track, or field, you only need to pay the $25 fee once. 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?

No, for each Career Track you apply for, there are specific requirements that you must also submit. See the Audition tab for more information. PLEASE NOTE – If you are applying for both sessions, you only need to create one set of materials (including the video essay and career track requirements).

When is the deadline to apply?

The final deadline is March 31 and all materials should be received by the GRAMMY Museum on or before that date. Should you need additional time, please email us to request an extension.

When will selectees be announced?

We will contact selected campers in late April or early May.

During GRAMMY Camp, how are Campers supervised?

Camp will have a full complement of GRAMMY Museum staff who will be on–site with Campers during their days at GRAMMY Camp. 

May I apply for more than one Camp session?

Yes, you can apply for Nashville, Los Angeles or both camp sessions.
