Please have the following information ready. All contact information for the primary parent/guardian, the child's name, gender, age at the time of camp and grade entering in September, name of school entering in the fall, the name of the program(s) the participant will attend, the exact name of the primary instrument or voice part (for music camps), roommate preference (optional) and optional questions and comments. 

2. Watch for a SECOND email, this time from Lori Arsenault that will confirm that your child has a spot on the roster, or on a waiting list. The email will be sent to the email address provided on the registration form, and will give you further instructions.

3: You will be asked for a non-refundable $100 deposit and signed consent forms. Balance is due 30 days prior to the start of each camp.


IMPORTANT NOTE: our communication with you will only be by e-mail from now through camp time. Please be sure to give an accurate and valid parent e-mail address so that we can confirm that your child has a spot in the camp. Confirmation is not automatic, but is done one child at a time by email.

** A note about waiting lists: There are no guarantees with waiting lists, but those on the waiting list often end up with a spot. Therefore, please keep in touch.

For additional information please contact Lori Arsenault, (207) 780-5142, (new email address)

This e-mail address should be a valid parent address that is regularly used. Important camp information and updates will be sent by e-mail to parents, and it's very important that these communications are received. Student and secondary e-mail addresses can be added to the comments, if you like.
Registration is now open. Register early. Some sections are already filled; waiting lists are kept.
Music camps registrations must show only one primary instrument. Anyone who plays a secondary instrument may include that in the comments, if you choose. All band camp registrants may also choose piano, guitar, bass guitar or double bass, but only if their primary instrument is a wind or percussion instrument.
Each room has two beds. There are two rooms to a suite. No more than four students can be placed in a single suite under any circumstances, so please plan accordingly if you are requesting roommates. For this reason, not all requests can be accommodated. Students who do not request a roommate will be placed with other students of the same gender, and similar age and grade, and when possible, similar instruments.
Answering this question will help us with future communications about our summer camps.
Due to space and ensemble limitations, submission of this registration form is not a guarantee of camp enrollment. You will receive enrollment confirmation from camp staff. Please mention here if there is anything unclear, or additional information you would like us to have at this time. Once your registration is confirmed, we will ask you for the more detailed information we will need for your camper to have a safe and enjoyable experience. Include in this field any secondary instruments, and any other questions you may have.
