Summer Camps

GMYS has summer camps that tailor to our non-experienced musicians all the way to advanced musicians. With multiple locations available, students are able to learn a new instrument or develop their skills with educators who are experts in their field. Our intermediate summer camps are typically four to six weeks long and our intensive summer camps are two weeks of hands-on learning.

Tuition & Scholarship

GMYS offers low-cost tuition for all of our summer camps. For those who do not qualify, payment plans are available and flexible to your needs. There are also scholarships available for our intermediate summer camps! Student scholarships are also available on a first come first serve basis. To receive a scholarship, you must provide proof of need with the following: most recent tax return, notice of termination/furlough, documentation of unemployment, and/or any other proof of need. Qualifying families will receive up to one scholarship. Payment plans are available.

What does the cost include?

Our camps include guest speakers/artists, field trips, master classes, and t-shirts. The beginner and intermediate camps also include lunch and a snack. We also offer before and after care at these camps at an extra cost of $25/week due at the start of each week. Before Care begins at 7:30 AM. After Care ends at 6:00 PM. Our camps offer large ensemble classes as well as smaller class sizes for focused instrumental electives which means that students will have a balance of individualized attention as well as the benefits of ensemble playing. Students will spend about four hours on their instruments and supplement their time with meaningful electives to enrich their musical learning experience.

Fit Kids Collaboration

During our summer camps, we want to make sure that our students are moving their bodies as well as working out their minds. This is why the Greater Miami Youth Symphony is so excited to celebrate our 10 years of partnership with Fit Kids of America once again. They are a non-profit whose mission is to support the development of children who will become academically engaged, physically fit, socially adept, and culturally enriched and to mature into independent and successful citizens of the future.
