The camp is open to students in grades 6-12. The SXU-Southside Summer Jazz Camp provides students with the opportunity to learn from and work with an outstanding group of jazz educators who are dedicated to helping them gain their confidence and improve on their abilities as section players, improvisers and sight-readers.

The camp includes daily rehearsals on jazz repertoire, instrumental sectionals, improvisation master-classes, jam sessions, guest concerts and music theory workshops. Students will showcase their talents on the final concert on that Friday evening in McGuire Hall of the Warde Academic Center on Saint Xavier University's Chicago campus.
