The 17th Annual Fairbanks Bluegrass Camp for Kids will be offered by Fairbanks Folk Fest with experienced bluegrass/ Americana musicians as music instructors. Note that the camp will again be five days this year, Monday through Friday. We expect spaces will fill up fast, so get your application and tuition payment in early.
Ages These camps are for children ages 7-16. We request that campers have completed first grade or equivalent prior to registration for the camp. We also request that campers age 7 be accompanied by their parent. This camp is an opportunity to explore traditional music in a supportive environment. Please speak with your child about behavior expectations while at camp.

Your schedule, books, and other information will be given to you when you arrive at camp. Please be sure to arrive at 10:00 AM Monday with your parent or guardian. A mandatory medical /release form is also due with this application. Applications are due by June 24, 2019. Tuition is $300 until June 1st, and $325 starting on June 2nd.
