String Camp Ensemble

String Camp FAQs

What should I bring to Camp? [NOTE: be sure to consult the full list of items to bring on the registration confirmation mailed upon receipt of your deposit.] Alarm clock, swimsuit, towel, rain gear, solos or etudes for practice, and spending money. Bring a padlock so you can use one of the lockers in Mason Hall to store your instrument and avoid carrying it back and forth to the dorms.

What do we wear for concerts? For the chamber ensemble recital and final concert: nice clothes (no sneakers).

How much spending money should I bring? This will vary from student to student. The college bookstore is open daily for toiletries, snacks, and Fredonia t-shirts and sweatshirts. There are snack machines in the dorms. The camp discourages students from bringing large amounts of money, and recommends somewhere in the neighborhood of $20-30 for the week.

How old must I be to attend the String Camp? Students currently enrolled in grades 8 through 12 are accepted.

What about health care? Participants will be taken to nearby Brooks Memorial Hospital in Dunkirk if the need arises. Please bring your health insurance card, and supply a copy with your registration.

What about housing? Students will be housed in a campus residence hall, with resident counselors. Each double occupancy dorm room contains two standard size twin beds, two dressers, two desks, a large mirror and closet. Bed linens, pillows and towels are provided. The residence hall has a recreation room, and vending machines for snacks. Please indicate on the Application Form if you wish to share your room with a specific roommate, as last minute requests cannot be honored.
