CLASS REGISTRATION

LATEST UPDATE AS OF 6/30/20:

Hello everyone!  Thank you so very much for your interest in our 2020 Colorado A Cappella Summer Camp! We have been keeping a close eye on the government’s directives to determine if and how we are able to not only run our Summer Camp, but run it safely for all of our campers.  With the well-being of our students and their families being our primary concern, we will need to modify our program this year to ensure everyone’s safety as best we can.  Please review Summer Camp 2020 carefully to help you determine if this year’s camp is for you.  In the best of spirits, we want to run this camp ONLY if it’s right for our community. No pressure either way, we just need to know everyone is comfortable with these revisions in place.
 
We want your camper with us in 2020 if you feel confident in their safety, health and the true value of our modified camp.  If there is any hesitance, we urge you to take this year off and we will see you in 2021.  We think this year will rock — we want you to be certain you feel the same way! 
Thank you so much!
