The health and safety of the students and staff are a top priority at Eastern U.S. Music Camp. Students are supervised 24/7 by certified, experienced music faculty and carefully selected and qualified counselors. Counselors are readily available at all times for assistance and support in any way. They reside on the same floors with students in the dormitories and escort students to and from all activities on campus and occasional walks to the village of Hamilton.
Emergency and safety procedures are carefully reviewed for all students at the orientation meeting upon arrival. Colgate University Campus Safety Department has officers on duty 24/7 to provide a safe and secure campus environment. The Campus Nurse or Emergency Medical Technician resides on the campus and is always available. In the event of illness or injury requiring additional assistance, students are taken to Community Memorial Hospital, located adjacent to the campus. Parents will be immediately notified of any emergency.
The EUSMC program has been inspected and certified every year by the New York State Department of Health for 41 years.
“Being at Colgate has been the highlight of all my summers. I became a better musician and made many friends. I will never forget what a beautiful place Colgate is and the caring faculty.”
