Housing and Meals
All SummerSong participants experience residential life on Westminster’s picturesque college campus during the camp—staying in Westminster housing and dining in the Shaw Student Center. All participants will also have a camp counselor assigned to them 24/7 during the camp for their safety.
Housing and meals are included in the registration fee, and campus housing will provide sheets, blankets, pillows, towels, soap, and shampoo. Special housing scholarships are available for qualified students; indicate your interest on the application form to be considered for a scholarship.
You may check into your dorm room on Sunday, 3–6:00 p.m. You must check out of your dorm room before 10:00 a.m. on Saturday—many students leave after the Student Showcase Concert on Friday evening.
What to Pack
At the Student Showcase Concert, students will perform in their camp t-shirt and choice of bottoms and shoes. Pack comfortable clothes for hot summer weather and comfortable shoes that could work for hiking, going to the gym, neighborhood walking, or shopping. Include layers like a cardigan or sweatshirt for rooms with strong air conditioning. If you're interested in using the pool at the Health, Wellness, and Athletic Center, pack your swimsuit.
