Camp Application

An unparalleled opportunity to improve your musicianship

Enrollment is non-competitive and FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED in order to enable a participant-to-faculty ratio of 4:1. This ensures that every participant has an unparalleled opportunity to improve their technique and musicianship.

KBHC 2024 COVID-19 Policy

Although KBHC does not have a vaccination requirement for 2024, we encourage everyone to receive the latest CDC-recommended COVID-19 vaccinations before coming to camp. This is to protect the health of all participants, staff, and faculty, and to help ensure those attending camp are able to participate fully.

If you have respiratory virus symptoms or test positive for any respiratory illness, you should remain isolated until your symptoms have improved, you feel well enough to resume normal activities, and you are free of fever for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication. You should also wear a mask when you are around others in indoor settings for a total of 10 days from when your symptoms started. A testing protocol will be determined closer to KBHC 2024 dependent on the current situation and recommendations. If you should test positive at KBHC camp staff will work with you to find outdoor playing opportunities, if feasible and weather permitting.
