A residential or commuter camp for string players entering grades 4-9, with a minimum of four months playing experience. Students will grow as musicians and have fun making new friends through lots of supervised social activities. Registration will begin on February 1, 2022 and close on May 13, 2022. 

A Typical Day at String Camp

A camper's day begins early! The first rehearsal of the day begins at 9:00 a.m. and both resident and day campers are kept busy. A typical daily schedule might go like this:

  • 9:00 a.m. - Orchestra rehearsal
  • 10:30 a.m. - Sectionals
  • 12:00 p.m. - Lunch
  • 1:00 p.m. - Afternoon activity
  • 2:00 p.m. - Recreation
  • 3:00 p.m. - Sectionals
  • 4:30 p.m. - Orchestra rehearsal
  • 6:00 p.m. - Dinner
  • 7:00 p.m. - Evening activity
  • 10:00 p.m. - Lights out

Students accepted into the top orchestra will also participate in chamber music ensembles. Those rehearsals may take the place of an afternoon activity or sectional rehearsal.

      *Changing a student's registration from resident to commuter after May 13, 2022 (including during the week of camp) will result in a $50.00 moving fee. Students registered for residential camp who have yet to upload a COVID-19 vaccination card by May 13th will be switched to commuter status and charged this $50.00 moving fee. 

Fees include a non-refundable deposit of $115 that must accompany the application for registration to be complete for camp.

Campers may want some spending cash for the week as they will have access to purchasing items from the evening 'Snack Shack' or for ordering night-time pizzas. Most students will spend less than $25 during the week.
