How to Apply
Applying to Village Harmony
We accept online applications for our summer camps and our workshops. Registration is now open for the 2016 season.
We plan to send out our first round of acceptance emails for our 2016 camp sessions around January 15, 2016. Singers thereafter will be accepted on a rolling basis as long as space remains. Once a camp session is full, new applicants will be placed on a waiting list until a place opens up.
Village Harmony teen camps are open to ages 12-18. Our low-priced “alumni” camp (and you don’t have to be a VH alum) is primarily for college students and young adults between the ages of 19-26. All of our non-US camps are mixed age, open to both teen and adult singers.
A $15 application fee is required at the time of application. Download links for teacher reference and financial aid forms are sent in the confirmation email you receive after you apply online.
Following your official acceptance a non-refundable 25% tuition deposit will be required in order to hold your place. Tuition balances for summer camp are generally due on May 1st.
Please note: some people have had trouble with the application form timing out before they could finish. So, you can skip the essay questions, submit the form without them, and then come back later to submit those answers.
Tuition & financial aid
Tuition covers basic camp expenses, including housing, ground transportation during camp, music and most meals. Singers enrolled in the traveling camps can expect to have to buy a few meals during the performance tour. Airfare or other transportation to and from overseas camps is not included in the quoted tuition.
We don’t like to turn away any applicant for financial reasons, and this year we are expanding our scholarship program to enable even more teens of limited means to attend camp. We do expect participants to pay as much toward their expenses as is reasonably possible. To determine financial awards we require a completed financial aid application (downloaded through a link in your registration confirmation email) and supporting documents. For adult applicants we generally can offer a reduced fee option for the residential camps. And we can arrange individual payment plans to anyone on request.
If you or your child indicate on the online application form that you will need financial aid in order to attend camp, please be aware that we can not consider your camp application complete until we have received your financial aid application.
