The Mars Hill Summer Music Camp will provide a range of “free time” activities for music camp students. The Health and Fitness Center features a campus swimming pool and basketball courts for volleyball during scheduled hours. The Campus Quad will be used for frisbee, baseball, soccer, and other outdoor activities. Students will also be allowed to go back to their dorm room during this time to take a nap, or socialize with students in their suite. Campers will be escorted to the Mars Hill University Store during the week to purchase Mars Hill apparel. All recreational venues will be under camp counselor supervision. Music camp counselors will closely supervise all activities. The health and safety of each camper is our primary concern.
