PURPOSE OF THE CAMP
The String Festival @ Baylor University is a transformative festival for serious string players who want to grow in their musical and technical abilities alongside committed and passionate teachers.
SF@BU will offer the following:
HOUSING AND MEALS
Students will be housed in regular Baylor dormitories. Roommates will be assigned unless specific roommate requests are made. Although we cannot guarantee that each camper will be roomed with the individual he/she requests, we do our best to honor all roommate requests. Dormitory rooms accommodate two students. We won't know which dormitory the camp will be using until May. While in the dormitories, all camp students will be under the careful supervision of the camp staff, and security will be a priority. All meals will be served in university dining halls and will begin with dinner on Sunday, June 4 and end with breakfast on Saturday, June 10.
The cost of the seven-day camp is $615.00 which includes tuition, dormitory, meals, and activities. Commuter students may elect not to stay in the dorm and pay $445.00 which includes tuition, lunch, and camp activities. Commuter students may purchase breakfast and dinner for the week for an additional $75.
Camp enrollment is limited to 50 students and students will be accepted after submitting a short audition video. More information about the audition video will follow.
The festival is open to violin, viola, cello, and double bass students who will enter grades 9-12. All applicants must submit short audition video materials for acceptance.
