Thank you for your interest in the Carleton University Jazz Camp, an opportunity for musicians 12 of age and older to come and hone their skills with some of the finest jazz educators in the country.

Jazz enthusiasts from beginner to advanced are welcome. We have special programs designed for those who are just getting started, and for those who are more advanced. All ages from 12 and up are welcome.  Each year we welcome a blend of students from grades 7 and 8 through to university level, and adults through to seniors.  Everyone is welcome!

Students will have options to participate in a variety of activities:

  • Big band ensembles
  • Jazz combos
  • Vocal ensembles
  • Guitar ensembles
  • Jazz theory and ear training
  • Improvising classes
  • Jam sessions
  • Instrumental masterclasses

Camp hours are Monday to Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m; Friday until 6 p.m.

Faculty concerts are held Monday to Thursday at 3:30–4:30. A final concert for all camp participants to perform will be held on Friday at 3:30 (ending by 6 p.m.). All concerts are free and open to the public, but donations to fund student scholarships will be welcomed at all concerts.

Concerts are held in Kailash Mital Theatre in Southam Hall on the Carleton University campus. Ensembles from the camp will get a chance to perform for family, friends and the general public.
