FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I'M ALREADY REGISTERED, WHEN IS MY BALANCE DUE?
CAN I TAKE PHOTOS OR VIDEOS?
Still photos are OK, but we do not allow video recording, as most teachers (and students) would prefer not to be recorded.
CAN I SWITCH SESSIONS ONCE I'VE REGISTERED?
Yes, as long as there's space available.
CAN I MAKE AUDIO RECORDINGS?
Audio recordings are allowed, ask teachers' approval before recording classes.
CAN CHILDREN OR TEENS ATTEND CAMP?
Supervised children are welcome, but we do not have any childcare facilities available. Please contact us for more information.
DOES CAMP HAVE A SHUTTLE BUS?
Yes, see the overview page for details.
ARE VEGETARIAN OR VEGAN MEALS AVAILABLE?
We do have vegetarian and some vegan options at all meals. If you have other dietary restrictions please let us know, but you may have to supplement camp meals with your own food.
IS MY RV ALLOWED AT CAMP?
Yes, space permitting, although there are no hook-ups. Please contact us to confirm space.
DOES THE CAMP HAVE A WORK-STUDY PROGRAM?
Yes, but you need to email us and register early (like in January) for 2013. Be prepared to miss some class time on either side of dinner.
ARE INSTRUMENTS PROVIDED FOR THE CLASSES?
Good question. We do have some camp drums (a few surdos, repiniques, caixas, tamborims, and congas) available for use in the baterias and other classes. Other students will sometimes be willing to share their instruments, but you should plan on bringing what you can to be sure you'll have an instrument to play. There are also instruments available at the camp store for purchase. In addition, we'll have 2 drumsets, 2 pianos, and a bass rig available for ensemble classes.
CAN I BRING MY OWN TENT AND CAMPING SUPPLIES?
Yes. If you prefer privacy over sharing a tent with three others, that's a good option. There are plenty of places to pitch your own tent.
WILL MEDICAL SERVICES BE PROVIDED ON SITE?
We will have a trained medical professional on site.
