We will provide a light snack (in the morning only) for all students in the Debut Orchestra. Debut Orchestra students participating in the Debut Chamber Music Program in the afternoon should plan to provide any additional snack or light lunch.

All students participating fully in the Festival Chamber Music Program will also receive a break with snacks in the afternoon.


Students are expected to demonstrate good behavior during the camp. We are guests in the church facilities used for the camp, and students will be expected to respect the property and employees at the church. No running in the halls or outdoors is allowed, and students should not roam in areas outside of those used for camp activity. Students are also expected to treat Festival of Strings faculty and students and their instruments or property with respect. We reserve the right to dismiss any student who is causing problems due to misbehavior. Tuition will not be refunded in such instances.


Please notify us of any medical condition your child may have which you feel we should be aware of.
