Before dinner in the late afternoon the pool is open as well as the volleyball court, ping pong table, basket ball and tether ball. Program includes all meals and boarding. Returning overnight students will also have the opportunity to be mentors to new students! Look for more information in the March mailing.
Bring bedding, clothes (including swimsuit and jacket), towel, toiletries, bug repellant, sunscreen, your instrument, and music stand. Costumes may be useful, as well as other fun things for the pool and ceilidh as long as they are safe and legal.
9:00 a.m.- 6:00 p.m.
This program is intended for students too old for kid camp, but not quite ready for the overnight program, or for students who have evening commitments. Students will participate in all musical activities, including cabin bands and the final concert, as well as fun afternoon activities, such as crafts, swimming, and flute-making. Students will spend Friday evening at camp (until 9:30 p.m.)-- the night of the Ceilidh! Program includes lunch.
