The 2020 Hilton Head Jazz Clinic, Hilton Head Jazz Guitar Institute and main Hilton Head Jazz Camp have been cancelled due to COVID-19, but have taken place since 2011 on the beautiful campus of Hilton Head Christian Academy located at 55 Gardner Drive in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
This 13-acre campus, only 3 miles from the Atlantic Ocean serves as a terrific setting for learning jazz with our esteemed faculty. We will be relocating to a brand new campus in Bluffton in 2021 and beyond – stay tuned for more details soon!
Students use multiple rehearsal spaces and classrooms for the big band & combo rehearsals, improv, jazz theory, master classes and elective offerings. Although a majority of our students are local to South Carolina and Georgia, we offer lodging options for students who wish to attend the Hilton Head Jazz Camp from out-of-state.
We have utilized Hilton Head Christian Academy’s Fine Arts Facilities, including a well-appointed band room, classroom rehearsal spaces and the HHCA Performing Arts Center. The HHCA Performing Arts Center features a large stage, state-of-the art sound and lighting with seating for 400 guests. This will also be the location for our Faculty and Camp Recital.
After students have completed a wonderful week of rehearsals and preparation, we will celebrate with a BBQ dinner on Friday afternoon and then a 5pm camp recital, featuring our vocalists and combos. On Saturday of camp week, students will report to our finale performance venue for a finale rehearsal, pizza party and performance and will each receive 2 complimentary tickets for their families. The grand finale concert typically takes place on Saturday of camp week, early in the afternoon.
