If I am a chaperone, what are my responsibilities-can I drop my child off?
Children may be dropped off at camp at 9AM (8AM for yoga) and picked up at 4:00PM. The festival is not liable for any injury that may occur due to lack of supervision. We do ask that parents make themselves available by phone if any issues should arise, and we strongly recommend a chaperones presence on the grounds at all times for any child under the age of 15.
Can my family come see just my performance? Or do they have to buy a ticket to the festival?
We encourage the whole family to come for the Thursday night show, and join you for the weekend! However, we do allow camp families to enter the grounds free of charge (with a special paper wristband visibly different than others), for the hour of your performance (4:30-6). We hope that you’ll stay and enjoy the rest of the music!
Can I pay/register at the gate?
Unfortunately no. You must register by July 20th at the latest. If you have difficulty with this deadline please call us at 207-625-8656. There are scholarships available, and payment plans are also an option, please contact us.
When will I find out who my teachers are?
When you arrive! Most campers will get an opportunity to study with all the teachers for the instrument they play (up to three instructors), plus attend workshops of their choice. They will also get to work with a teacher for their ensemble class who is not necessarily their instrument teacher. You also have the opportunity to get to know instructors personally over the week.
