What is a typical day like at Camp Electric?
Our priority at Camp Electric is for each student to know that they are created by a loving creator to create. Each morning your teen will begin with dorm group devotions and a worship service featuring a message from our camp, Pastor John Nix.
Clinics + Camp Sessions
Students will gather together with their fellow instrument/track campers for morning clinics. Afterward, all students will attend a Live Performance session with Tom Jackson to see how to take your live show to the next level.
Every day students are broken up into groups of 20-30 students for a 2hr session with players from some of the biggest names in the music industry. They discuss things like how you get into the industry, warm-ups, techniques, and everything in between.
During Free time your teen can choose from many different options such as Guitar Battle or Drum-Off, sit in on a Songwriting Session, Rock with The ‘CE All Star’ Band, learn from some of Trevecca’s Music Business professors, or just jam with their friends around campus.
Squad Wars + Theme Nights
It's not all music and learning at Camp Electric; we also have SQUAD WARS, where students compete against each other to see who will come out on top. Plus, Theme Night, where students can have fun and dress up as some of their favorite characters, live out life on an island, or be a part of a rodeo.
After a day full of learning comes an evening filled with excitement as some of the biggest names in Christian music take the stage at Camp Electric. On the last night, some of the CE Students will get a chance to take the stage and perform in front of the whole camp.

Students all over campus enjoy spontaneous "Jam Sessions", just hanging with their friends, from duets to bands, to entire worship times this is a favorite free-time option!
STAGE PERFORMANCE (all camp session)
When the light goes off and you see students get an understanding of performance that is not widely taught or understood, it is truly special. That's exactly what takes place when students attend Tom Jackson's Stage Performance track.
Author of the book Tom Jackson’s Live Music Method and the All Roads Lead to the Stage DVD series, Tom Jackson is uniquely talented and skilled at transforming an artist’s live show into a magical experience for the audience; helping artist at every level to create a live show that is engaging and memorable and teaching them to exceed their audiences’ expectations and to create fans for life.
His innovative, fun, and unique speaking & teaching skills are highly regarded at conferences, colleges, and music events around the world.
As Tom says, “When I introduce my Live Music Method into a performer’s rehearsal process, I’m leading them into an entirely new set of skills, a completely new tool set… in fact, a totally new mind set!”
