Pre-camp information will be available on this website three weeks prior to the start of camp. Pre-camp information includes medication requirements (complete only if taking meds at this event), check-in and out times with locations, confirmed daily schedule, what to bring and other important information you will need to know before attending camp. If any medical information changes, it is your responsibility to notify Continuing Education Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You are expected to bring your own instrument and have it in good working order.
Senior Campers, who are advanced players, can apply for our Artist Program (AP String Camp). To apply, students must send us a video audition by March 1, 2019. Winners will receive a promo code they will be able to use to register. Successful applicants will:
- Receive a full or half-tuition scholarship
- Receive a FREE private lesson with a UW-Whitewater Faculty member
- Be placed in other advanced classes throughout the week
The video should contain 7-10 minutes of solo repertoire demonstrating the student’s abilities. Videos can be emailed to: email@example.com.
We use rotational seating. If you would like to be considered for a leadership position (i.e., first stand), those of you who have not previously sent a video audition will have the opportunity to audition on the first day of camp after the opening concert. If you choose to audition, be prepared to perform a solo on your instrument. You might be asked to play some scales (to be selected from among the ones you know) and to do some sight-reading during these auditions as well.
A number of outstanding solo and ensemble performers from the camp will be invited to perform in the Honors Recital. Bring your music and accompaniment parts to camp if you wish to audition for the honors recital. We will be provide an accompanist.

Commuters will not receive a room key for the residence hall but are welcome to socialize in the residence hall with friends during breaks.
