Summer Camps takes place on an enclosed campus that is staffed with a security team and sheriff department presence. Music Academy campers will travel off campus with camp leaders to West Campus, PCC's private property with security access on Perdido Key. Our camp leaders supervise and interact with campers at every game, activity, meal, and service. They also stay in the residence halls and are available to meet campers’ needs 24 hours a day during the camp week.

Yes. After campers return to their residence halls at the end of the day, camp leaders check each room to make sure every camper is accounted for.

Many of our college faculty are away in the summer. If you have any questions about PCC during the camp week, please feel free to visit the Admissions Office.

Younger children are not permitted to stay in the residence halls with campers and registered coaches or to participate in activities. The children must stay with the parent at all times during camp but are welcome to join campers for services and meals. We do have camps available for younger children: Camp o’ the Pines, Discover Day Camp, and Sports Center Day Camp.
