I want to come, but I can’t afford it. Can I get a scholarship? Are work trades available?

Yes, and yes. Contact us and we'll send you the application.
Note: for best results, APPLY EARLY!

Most of the scholarships are intended for young people—kids, students, or other young adults with limited funds. There are two types of scholarships available: full scholarships, which cover the full price of attending camp; and partial scholarships.

Most scholarships are partial scholarships—you pay as much as you can, and the rest will be paid out of the scholarship fund. In this way, we are able to accommodate everyone who needs financial assistance. To apply for a partial scholarship, ask for a scholarship application.

There are also a few full scholarships available. These are intended for very low-income young people who are devoted to their music.  If this sounds like you, your child, or someone you know, please call 415-663-6030 to apply.

Scholarship recipients, or their parents, are asked to help out at camp with a camp chore or two (there are many to choose from).

The scholarship program is made possible largely through the donations of generous campers who pay a little (or in some cases, a lot!) extra to help fund it. Many, many, many thanks to all those generous people!

Work trades: This option is intended for adults who can't afford the fees to come to camp. If this applies to you, ask for a work-trade application. APPLY FOR THIS BEFORE THE FIRST LATE FEE DATE; after that, we may or may not accept any more work trades, though we will likely be more flexible with campers coming for the first time.
