Family Package

The package provides for:
  • Parent 1 – full-time student
  • Parent 2 – one choir
  • Children (ages 7 and up) – Children’s Choir

One parent may participate as a full-time student while the other parent assumes child care responsibilities. The latter may participate in a choir. Children (ages 7 and up) will sing in the Children’s Choir (treble voices only). Child care will be provided for children (under age 7) only during the morning and afternoon choir practices. Meals will be provided for the entire family. Additional opportunities for children may include participation in age-appropriate Music Education. These rates apply to children up to age 17. Children ages 18 years and older must apply as students. This family package is only available at the Virginia Camp.  Since it is offered at a discounted rate, family package applicants will not be eligible for other scholarships.
