Frequently Asked Questions
Can I request someone to be my roommate?
Although requests cannot be guaranteed, residential students may indicate a preferred roommate on the registration form. Both parties must agree to the request before students are assigned to the same room. Roommate election or changes will not be permitted after May 25, 2013. If no roommate preference is indicated, an effort will be made to match students of the same age and instrument. Students may not switch roommates upon arrival at or during the week.
Can I make payments for the camp and when are the payments due?
Yes, payments are accepted. Checks need to be made out to The University of Colorado. A $150 non-refundable despoit is due by April 1st. The full payment must be received in the office by May 25th. Mail payments to the Camp Office, 301 UCB, Boulder, Colorado 80309-0301.
What extra money will I need?
While almost everything is covered by the Summer Academy fees, students may need some extra money for vending machines, extra snacks, bowling, billiards, and arcade games. Parents most likely will need to pay for parking at the concert. The Euclid Autopark costs $3.00 after 5:00pm.
How can I contact my child?
Students are allowed to have cell phones at camp. However, they are asked to turn them off during class and rehearsal. During work hours, parents can contact the main office at 303-492-6584, 303-492-5004, or 303-735-2283 and a camp administrator will pass a message or get the student on the phone.
What if I need to leave camp?
Students will not be permitted to leave camp for any reason (including visiting the home or friend of a Boulder friend or relative), unless we receive detailed written notification one week prior to the first day of camp. Students may not leave camp with anyone under the age of 21. Only requests that do not interfere with rehearsals or classes will be considered. If a student must leave early due to a medical or family emergency, the parent or legal guardian must contact the program administrator or coordinator to sign the student out.
