You can book for the full camp (5 nights and days – the best way to experience this unique event) or for 1 to 3 days and nights on a pro-rata basis. Since the camp is an immersion program, we have created the camp to best be enjoyed by participants attending the whole camp. You don’t need to book into individual workshops if you are attending the camp, but you may wish to consult the program if you are only booking into one or two days. However, if you are enrolling in the Arabic Music Masterclasses you are required to book into these workshops ahead of time and attend all the sessions you have enrolled in.
Booking forms and more information can be found here:
All payments must be finalised by 30 September 2018, unless you are booking late – we do accept bookings up until the 14 October 2018 but recommend booking early to avoid disappointment as places are strictly limited. The 2016 camp sold out!
