The WCSU String Camp for strings is a one-week residential camp for string instrumentalists grades 5-12. Students will be placed in level appropriate orchestral groups that will be conducted by members of the camp faculty. The week will begin with an audition by each participant for ensemble placement and culminate with a concert for the parents. In addition to ensemble participation campers will particpate in a camp choir and expore alternate string styles.
Campers will be housed in Newbury Hall and will be supervised by adult live in counselors who are first aid certified. Free time is spent in organized activities that are age level appropriate such as: concerts and performances by our faculty and guests; movies shown in our full size theater; volleyball, kickball, wiffle ball, frisbee etc.
