What is the schedule?
We will begin at 8:30am on Friday and 9am on Saturday. Family and friends are welcome to join us for the evening performances. Here is a PDF of our 2019 schedule. The 2020 schedule will be sent out about a week before the workshop. Students under the age of 18 must be checked in and out by a parent or designated adult.
What is the plan for lunch?
You can either bring your own lunch or place an order at registration on Friday morning. Average cost is $10-15 per day. If you prefer to leave campus during lunch, there are a few options nearby. Participants under 18 will need to be checked out by a parent or designated adult.
