Special Note Regarding End Of Year School Date Conflicts Due To Weather:
We have been fielding questions and concerns regarding potential conflicts between our camp dates  and school districts ending dates as most have missed numerous snow days. Here is some information we hope to be of help to you in your decision making:

* The camp dates are unable to be moved and will remain unchanged.
* Should you need to cancel your camp registration due to a conflict of ending school dates we will offer you a full refund as long we are notificed on or before May 1st (this should provide ample time for you to reserve your camp spot and also discover your districts calendar changes)
* We will be flexible and accomodate students who may need to miss a portion of camp to attend final exams and/or graduation type ceremonies.
* We will offer individualized documentation for your student to your school district confirming attendance and/or registration of camp. Districts typically offer a "school related educational absence" form that will allow your student to miss school without penalizing the student or school system. Parents must pick this form up at their local school or central office and fill it out prior to the missed dates. If documentation or verification is needed from our office simply email the camp director at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

We hope these options and flexibility aide in your decision making process.  We look forward to another great  summer of music making and hope you will consider being part of our 79 year tradition.
