The 25th Residential Summer String Camp has Ended

The Residential Summer String Camp is over for 2015. The final concert featured music by Václav Nelhýbel, Stephen Chin, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Paul Hindemith and others.

This camp also had more electives than any previous camp, the 25th anniversary dinner on Wednesday, a kidnapped frog and just a little rain.

We will add photographs and recordings from the camp to the Galleries by the end of February 2015.

The 26th Residential Summer String Camp is already scheduled to run from 17th January 2016 (Sunday) to 23rd January 2016 (Saturday).

The 25th Residential Summer String Camp Begins

If you have applied and are reading this before the camp, we expect to see you at Camp Clayton between 4:00pm and 5:30pm today, as described on page 4 of the Information Sheets.
