  • Elective Form – While at camp, students will have elective classes which will meet daily.  In order to prepare for these classes, campers should fill out the online Elective Form prior to the first day of camp.  Be sure campers select 5 different choices. All classes will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.
  • Medical Form – Please fill out the online Medical Form prior to the first day of camp.

COMMUNICATION: I will be using to communicate with you via text. This is a fast, easy way to keep communication at its best during the camp week.  It will only be used during the week of camp to keep you informed. I will be adding everyone to the camp group, so please accept a text invitation to be included. This is NOT a group text, it is simply a way for us to communicate quickly should the need arise. 

CONCERT: On Friday/Saturday in Carroll, we will have an Elective Concert at 1:00pm where campers can share what they have learned in the elective classes. Parents are welcome to attend, but not required. We will dismiss camp following the Elective Concert and campers will return at 6:00pm.  The Final Concert will begin promptly at 7:00pm.  Attendance at both concerts is MANDATORY as this is the culmination of our teamwork all week.  Concert dress will be camp t-shirts (which will be distributed on Friday/Saturday) and shorts/pants.  The camp will end at the conclusion of the evening concert.

DURING THE WEEK:  We will also include outdoor recreation every day, so dress comfortably and apply sunscreen as needed.


  • Instrument and accessories (i.e., rosin, mutes, etc.) 
  • Labeled water bottle
  • Lunch daily

I look forward to working with your child at camp! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions:
