Choir Camp Rules & Guidelines


Campers are expected to acquaint themselves with the rules, procedures and standards of conduct established by the UTSA Choir Camp. A camper who does not fulfill the responsibilities set out by such rules, procedures and standards of conduct may be subject to disciplinary action, including dismissal from camp.

  • Campers are required to wear their name tag in clear view at all times.
  • Clothing must be appropriate. Same expectations as public schools.
  • Every activity for camp has a designated parameter (e.g. the Music Building, the Cafeteria). For security reasons, campers are to remain within the designated parameter, and when traveling across campus, will need to do so with a UTSA Choir Camp staff person. Campers should not have any need for internet use, therefore campers are prohibited from internet use while on campus. UTSA will not be held responsible for actions of a camper who is in violation of these rules.
  • For safety reasons, any outside visitors will need to check in with the Camp Director.
  • Campers are expected to eat all contracted meals within the camp parameters. No camper may leave campus or have meals delivered to them by friends or family. Special concerns should be written.
  • No violation of any local, state, or federal law is permitted. (Includes alcoholic beverages for a minor and smoking.)
  • Possession of illegal drugs, drug paraphernalia, fireworks, chemicals, gasoline, or other explosives, firearms, illegal knives, clubs, or prohibited weapons is reason for immediate removal from the camp without refund. Prescription and over-the-counter medication is only allowed if listed on the Medical form that is enclosed in this packet.
  • Absolutely no form of sexual misconduct, harassment, violence, threats of violence, or other acts of communications intended to intimidate, harass, or annoy will be tolerated.
  • Campers may not be in rooms of campers or staff of the opposite sex.
  • Be respectful of others in the dorm. No running or loud noise of any kind is permitted in the hallways. Rooms must remain quiet at the time of curfew, which can be found on your schedule. No pets allowed.
  • Do not remove or harm the furniture or property in the dorm. Payment of any damage to the dorm facility is the camper’s responsibility.
  • Dorm room keys are issued for personal use and are not transferable. Lost keys must be reported immediately to a counselor.
  • Do not tamper with any fire equipment, including extinguishers, exit signs, smoke detectors, sprinklers, fire alarms, and fire doors. There is to be no use of fire in the dorm, including burning candles and incense.
  • Should there be any maintenance related problem evident in your dorm room, particularly safety related issues or flowing water, you should report it immediately to a camp counselor.
  • Removing window screens is prohibited. Therefore, the window is not to be used as a point of entry or exit, and items may not be thrown from windows.
