Camp students should plan to bring instruments with them to camp. With the change in location, we will not have access to as much extra equipment as we have had in the past. If you do not have your own instrument, we suggest you speak to your school band director about borrowing one.  If you have trouble borrowing equipment, you must let us know as far in advance of camp week as possible by contacting us at info@joesjazzcamp.com.

Special Dietary Concerns

Because our meals are donated by sponsors, we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to  accommodate those students with special dietary concerns. We will always do our best to find out & advise our students about lunches that may contain common food allergens.
