COVID-19 policy

We understand that the province of British Columbia may no longer have a covid-19 vaccine mandate in place during the week of camp. However, due to the demographics of participants, we will be requiring a proof of full vaccination, or else proof of exemption at registration on Sunday, July 17.

If you are unable to show proof of vaccination or proof of exemption at the time of registration, you will not be able to check in. Furthermore, there will be no refunds of any money paid towards camp.


Registration and Payment

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:

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

    Please note that applications are accepted on a first-come first-served basis while there is still space for your instrument or vocal section. Instrumentalists who are wait-listed because your 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.

  • The balance of your fees are due by June 1st, 2022. Late payments are subject to a 15% surcharge.

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

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


Financial Assistance

Financial assistance is available to those who find that the fees are a barrier to participation.

Scholarship recipients will have all or part of the tuition portion of their camp fees waived.

Bursary recipients will have all or part of their camp fees waived for reasons of financial hardship.

Criteria used for awarding Scholarships and Bursaries:

  • Scholarships will be given to students in a post-secondary music program, other students in full-time education, and individuals who study with a professional musician.
  • Bursaries will be awarded on the basis of financial need.
  • Further consideration will be given to musicians whose voice/instruments are essential for performing the planned camp repertoire. Other applications will also be judged on their potential benefit to the musical balance of the camp.

Application for Scholarship and/or Bursary (application deadline May 16)


Under 19's

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 day students without a chaperone.

A completed waiver form must be submitted for each child/student which must be signed by the parent or legal guardian. Chaperones who are not the parent or legal guardian of the child should ensure that the waiver form is completed before arriving at camp.

Mandatory Waiver Form for participants 18 years and under



Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to space in your instrument/voice section. Upon receipt of your application, the Registrar will send you a confirmation and a summary of the fees due. Payments can then be made by cheque or on-line bank deposit (instructions will be provided). If your instrument or voice section is full, you will be put on a waiting list.

We no longer accept paper applications. If you are unable to complete an on-line form, please call our "Info Line" (250-382-2781) and someone will assist you in submitting a camp application.
