Surry Community College is committed to preserving the area’s rich heritage of old-time music. As part of that commitment, we are excited to offer the 4th annual Surry Old-Time Music Camp July 29 – August 2, 2019 on our campus in Dobson, NC. Join us for a week of music and fun led by the area’s finest old-time musicians. This summer we are excited to offer more classes, more playing time, group jams, and the opportunity for students age 10 to 110 to learn an instrument or sharpen your skills. Students may choose a primary instrument and skill level to study for the week including beginner to advanced level guitar, fiddle, mandolin, or claw-hammer banjo.  The week will also include workshops in singing, traditional dance, stand-up bass, bluegrass banjo, group jams and more.  

The cost for the week is $75 for youth ages 10-17 and $150 for adults 18 and up. A limited number of loaner instruments are available for students who do not have their own. Please indicate this on your registration.

Food and Lunch

Lunch will be provided each day with your choice of one of the following options: Chicken Tenders, Hamburger/Cheeseburger, Hot Dog, or Corn Dog with French Fries and a Fountain Drink.  

On Friday, we will have a pizza party after the student concert.

Note: Students with food allergies and dietary restrictions are encouraged to bring their own lunch each day or purchase other items available in the Knight’s Grill.

Students will need to bring their own snacks. Vending machines are available for snacks and drinks. 


Emergency Medical and Contact Information

Parents will need to provide emergency medical and contact information for each student under 18 years old. Emergency forms will be emailed or available for completion upon check-in on Monday, July 29th.

Surry Community College is proud to offer this camp sponsored by the Wright Traditional Music Fund and Martin Guitar Charitable Foundation.
