The Rushmore Music Camp was founded in 1970 by Paul and Lois Hedge when he was the Band Director at Lead High School in Lead, SD, and she was the school librarian. Their vision was to provide a musical experience in the Black Hills of the highest calibre. To do this, the most recognized conductors and performer/teachers were enlisted to provide an unforgettable musical experience in one of the most beautiful settings in the country.
As we said earlier Rushmore National Music Camp was established in 1970 by Paul and Lois Hedge. The camp is currently under the leadership of Jared and Katie Opp, Instrumental and Vocal Educators in Gregory, SD.
