Answers to our most commonly asked questions about Summer School Residential Camp…
I don’t live in Victoria – can I still attend Camp?
Due to the nature of our funding, we will be giving priority to Regional Victorian students however you are welcome to register your interest and go on our waiting list. If a position still remains available after Friday 10 November, we will be distributing second round offers and can confirm your enrolment either way at that point.
I’ve missed the application closing date, can I still apply?
Yes, we can still accept late applications in some ensembles. If there isn’t a position available for you, we can put you on our waiting list and be in contact should a position become available. Please call our office to find out more on (03) 9376 8988.
Do I need to apply for Summer School separately?
No, if you complete an application form for Summer School Residential Camp, it doubles as a Summer School application.
If I don’t get into Summer School Residential Camp, can I still attend Summer School?
If we’re not able to offer you a place at Summer School Residential Camp, we will still be offering you a position in Summer School. However, please contact us as we may be able to help with alternative accommodation options. If you do not wish to be considered for Summer School alone, please advise us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Is there a sibling discount for Summer School Residential Camp?
Yes. It is the same discount of $50 only which applies to the Summer School fees. The Summer School Residential Camp overall is heavily subsidised to make it as accessible as possible so we’re unable to discount it further.
What sort of information do I need to provide for my Camp application?
We ask you to submit a letter of reference from your instrumental or school music teacher to ensure the limited positions go to those who will benefit most. We recommend you include information such as: the variety of music available in your local area, your own involvement in music and any other comments in support of your application. If your teacher has any questions, please ask them to contact the Melbourne Youth Orchestras office by emailing email@example.com or calling 03 9376 8988.
