    Can anyone recommend a good harp camp for the summer of 2008?

    Elena,
    I definitely recommend Interlochen Summer Arts Camp in Michigan for the harp, it was a great experience and I’m sure your student will love it. It is a long travel to get there, but worth it. She will probably be in the Intermediate division- for her age group. Ensemble in the morning and orchestra in the afternoon. You do not have to bring your harp there. You do have to send in an audition tape, and I am not sure if it is too late to apply this year.
    I also recommend Elyrica Harp and Flute Camp- a harp and flute camp.
    Look into those camps, and I am sure your student will love them.

    Elena, there is an excellent list of harp camps all over the U.S., with tuition costs, dates, age limits if any, and much more. It was done in Harp Column magazine, volume

    My daughter is 12 (in Aug) and has been playing the harp since age 5 as a Suzuki student.

    I am 14 and have been playing the harp for 7 years. I live in MA, but went to a harp camp in Seattle. best camp ever. its name is Pacific Harp Institute. I loved it! the pedal harp program was amazing, there is also a lever harp part.
    hope i helped

    I am investigating starting a summer program.

    How far would you travel?

    What is the longest you would stay if possible? (I think in terms of 6-8 weeks)

    How cool or warm should it be in the area?

    Does it need to be on or near water?

    In a vacation area, urban area, or isolated rural area?

    A retreat center, boarding school, campus, or deserted summer camp?

    Meals included or make your own?

    Parents included or on your own?

    Would you come if you were not allowed to bring electronic devices, if all you could do was practice, read books, write letters, play games, go to concerts, listen to music?

    What’s the most you could pay per week for everything?
