Would you like to come to String Camp but are hesitant because of the cost? Apply now to come for free! We reserve 20-25% of all seats in camp each year for folks to come for FREE! All you need to do is email us at info@ossipeevalley.com with a bit about yourself, your musical background, and the support you need. We can also provide partial discounts for those who just need a little boost. We do limit the number of people taking each instrument class in order to manage student to teacher ratios, so if you play a more popular instrument such as guitar, get in touch asap! If camp scholarships are sold out it will indicate that here: 

I really enjoy coming to string camp; learning all the new songs, meeting new friends in a musical world, not to mention those edible treasures from the Farmers Belly. I cannot put into words how delicious those meals are!

At String Camp a whole new world opened up to me that I was unaware of; a wonderful gathering of kind, like-minded people who wanted to get better at what they do. For someone relatively new to songwriting this was pure heaven and the extra spark I needed to keep those creative flames burning..

Ossipee Valley String Camp has been one of the highlights of my life! Being around musicians of all different ages and vibes has been transformative. It always pushes me to pick my instrument back up.

     By the numbers...

In 2023, North Atlantic Arts awarded over $12,000 of scholarships, representing 22% of our total camp attendance. 3/4 of those scholarships were full-rides, and all were needs based, representing students from ages 13-70, from four states, with 1/2 of attendees being from rural areas of Maine and New Hampshire.

The North Atlantic Arts Alliance is a 501c3 organization based in rural south-western Maine. The Alliance works with private donors and charitable grant giving organizations to fund a robust scholarship program for all ages to ensure equal access to camp. 

This program provides FREE access through 'scholarships' and also can provide partial discount scholarships as well, and can even provide transportation, assistance for special needs students, and provides a youth coordinator at camp (daytime only-overnight must have chaperone), for students who are attending camp as day students from the local area. 

If you or your organization would like to support this program, please get in touch.

      How do I apply?? : email info@ossipeevalley.com 

               Please note, generally, as long as there is space, no one is turned away for a scholarship--it is a needs based, non-selective process. The only reason you may not be awarded a scholarship is if you play an instrument with a very high student to teacher ratio already, so apply early!  Paid seats for camp 2024 sold out in seven days, so we encourage scholarship students to apply as soon as possible, when all seats are sold out, this page will indicate that on this page. 

Currently we are sold out of seats for guitar students. We still have seats available for: voice, songwriting, fiddle, mandolin, bass, ukulele. We have ten seats remaining.
