Since its founding in 1947 by the late Harold G. Palmer, thousands of students have attended High Plains Music Camp.  Sixty-eight years later, the camp continues to offer students the opportunity to study with outstanding musicians from across the country.  Campers experience a week of stimulating, concentrated study with nationally recognized musicians, teachers, and conductors. Performances, concerts, as well as recreational and social camp life make the week an event worth repeating year after year.
