Hays, KS– Since its founding in 1947 by the late Harold G. Palmer, thousands of students have attended High Plains Music Camp on the campus of Fort Hays State University.


Sixty-eight years later, the camp continues to offer students an unmatched opportunity to study with outstanding musicians and build new friendships with other young musicians.


This year’s camp begins on Sunday, July 10, and runs through July 16. 


Students who attend this annual camp enjoy a week of stimulating, concentrated study with nationally recognized musicians, teachers, and conductors. Performances, concerts, and recreational and social camp life experiences bring many campers back year after year.


The camp agenda includes nightly performances of professional concerts for the campers and the public to enjoy.
