Youth Pricing and Scholarship Fund
We’re excited about the growing interest in traditional music and dancing among young people–the future is in their hands. To help young people take part in Ashokan Music & Dance Camps, we offer major discounts for children and young adults and have established a Youth Scholarship Fund. Anyone age 25 or younger can apply by filling out our Youth Scholarship Application.
A limited number of work exchange positions are available to partially defray the cost of the camp. A list of available positions can be found here.
Indicate your first three choices of positions during online registration and make a deposit of $150 or more to hold your registration.
