Junior Trumpet Institute
A separate and parallel trumpet camp will be offered in Holmes Hall for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade trumpeters. This camp focuses on fundamentals for young students and offers more recreational/fun activities. For more info on the junior trumpet institute, click here.
If you are flying to Kentucky for the institute, it is recommended that you fly into the Lexington Blue Grass Airport (LEX). Free shuttle pickup to and from the Lexington airport will be available. If you need pickup from the airport, please email your flight information to Abby Temple at uktrumpetcamp(at)gmail.com
For participants who choose the room option, housing will be in Holmes Hall, the state-of-the-art fine arts dorm opened in Fall 2016.
Check in: morning of June 5th
Check out: afternoon/evening of June 8th
LINENS: Participants should bring their own linens, including Full XL or Queen sheets, blanket, pillow, and toilet paper, plus any other necessities. These are the student's responsibility as the dorm does not provide these essentials. (This helps us keep the cost down for our residential campers.)
There are many dining options within a short walking distance from Holmes Hall, including on-campus meal options directly across the street in the Gatton Student Center. Participants will be given a list of both on-campus and off-campus restaurants and should bring their own spending money for such meals.
For our Middle School participants, all Junior Institute meals will be organized as a group by the camp counselors.
