Financial Assistance

Financial assistance is available to those who find that the fees are a barrier to participation. Assistance is intended to defray part of the cost of the fees.

We encourage anyone who wishes to attend the camp and requires financial assistance to apply. In particular, we welcome:

  • Students
  • Families with young children
  • Individuals on low income
  • ..etc..

All children and students 18 years of age and under must be accompanied by an adult chaperone over 18 who will assume full responsbility for the child/student while at camp.
Note: Students 15 and up may attend as non-resident campers without a chaperone.

Application and Payment

Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to space in each instrument/voice section.

Note: If your instrument or voice section is full, you will be put on a waiting list. Instrumentalists who are wait-listed because their instrument section is full may be accepted to camp if they choose not to play in a chamber group or symphony orchestra, or if they would like to play an instrument not yet being wait-listed.

Once your application has been accepted, the registrar will be in contact with you to send you an invoice and tell you how you can pay your fees. Payment options will be by cheque or by Interac.

Payment policy:

  • Upon receipt of an invoice, your membership fee plus a non-refundable deposit of $200 per camper is payable immediately. If the membership fee and deposit are not received within two weeks of invoicing, your application will be cancelled and you will have to re-apply.

  • The balance of your fees are due by June 1st, 2024. Late payments are subject to a 15% surcharge.

  • For cancellations made before June 15th all amounts paid less the $200 deposit and membership fee will be refunded.

  • There will be NO REFUNDS for any cancellations made after June 15th.


We do not accept paper applications. If you are unable to complete an on-line form, please call our "Info Line" (250-634-2781) and someone will assist you in submitting a camp application.
