In addition to the intensive daily rehearsals, the participants can choose between vocal or instrumental lessons, which they attend either alone or as part of a group.

In between and after the units, attendees are invited to go downtown, to take trips to the local surrounding, to jam at night or just relax. The Summer Camp focuses on overall band coaching, artistic teamwork and the implementation of real-life creativity.
As an international event, the Summer Camp offers excellent ways of networking for young musicians in the European context. The teachers, all professional experts of the music business, will do their best to support the idea of the International Summer Camp. The results of the International Summer Camp will be presented on the Popakademie stage in the course of a public concert.
