Frequently Asked Questions
What is the camp schedule?
Everyday is slightly different. Here is a sample schedule from last year to give you an idea. You will receive an official schedule in your email once you’re registered.
When Should I Arrive and Leave?
If you’re arriving by car, arrive by 4 PM. Departure on the last day depends on your concert time, and will be either by 12 PM or 3 PM. All times are EST.
When Should I Plan to Arrive and Depart if I’m Flying?
We are happy to send the Camp A Cappella Shuttle to pick you up and drop you off at the airport, for a small surcharge. Dayton International (DAY) is $50, and Cincinnati (CVG) is $75.
When planning your arrival, schedule your flight to arrive between 11 AM and 4 PM (EST) for either airport.
When planning your departure, schedule your flight for 4 PM or later (for Dayton), and 5 PM or later (for Cincinnati).
As Camp approaches, our travel team will reach out to you to ensure a smooth pickup at the airport.
How Does the Housing Work?
Campers are divided by age group and gender in double rooms in Wright State University’s residence halls. There is a staff counselor on each floor. The beds are extra long twins - partially lofted. There are bathrooms on each hall, with private, lockable shower stalls.
Campers do have the option to request a specific person for their roommate. We can make no guarantees, but will do all we can to make it happen.
Single rooms are an option as an add-on (additional charge, and there are only a few available on a first-come first-served basis).
Adult campers and educators will be housed separately from the younger campers.
Will I Need To Prepare Anything Before Camp?
Prepare to have the BEST WEEK EVER. But also, we will send sheet music for the ensemble numbers so you can get a head start if you’d like. It will cut down on learning time in rehearsal so you can focus on the performance.
What Do I Need to Bring With Me?
We provide sheets, pillow, blanket, towel, and washcloth, which will be in your room when you arrive.
We’ve created an extensive Camp A Cappella Packing List for necessities and optional items to pack in preparation.
I’ve Paid My Deposit—Where Do I Pay My Balance?
You can pay your balance by logging into your camp account.
How Should I Prepare to Dress at Camp?
All campers should pack black bottoms (jeans, slacks, skirt), a black top, and black shoes for the final performances.
Otherwise, we are pretty casual, dress-wise, at Camp A Cappella. Any clothing that would pass a high school decency code is permitted. Keep in mind that while it is summer, most of the day is spent indoors, so it’s a good idea to pack a sweater. There is a considerable amount of walking from meals to activities - comfy shoes are a must.
