Welcome to the Registration Process for Sumer String Academy! Thank you for choosing Lazy F as your summer camp site! Be sure to indicate Lazy F as the Camp Site on your Registration Form, and Summer String Academy as the Camp Event. Before you get started, here is some information you will need:

Summer String Academy is an overnight orchestra camp. Age requirements are based on the grade that your child will be entering in the fall. Students must be entering 6th, 7th, 8th, or 9th grade.  Students are expected to have at least one year of playing experience in their school string program or equivalent. Some exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis. Sixth grade students are limited to Session I; July 15-20. Seventh through ninth grade students may do either week or both weeks if they choose. Please know that program activities and repertoire for the July 15-20 week and July 22-27 camps are identical. When you register your child, make sure you indicate the grade for the 2018-2019 school year!
