Children's Program - 2017

During Traditional Song (July 9-15), Celtic (July 16-22) and Old-Time Music & Dance (July 23-29) Weeks we offer a full-day program, taught by Melissa Hyman, for children ages 6-12. Remember, space is limited. Children must have turned 6 by July 1st to participate. No exceptions please. Program activities are scheduled during class periods, and parents are responsible for their children at all other times. Those bringing children should indicate so on their registration form. Children 12 and under may stay in a room with two adults, at least one of whom is a registered student, at no charge, other than the cost of meals. The accompanying adult should provide each child's bedding (mattress, sheets, blankets, pillow), and both adults must request the arrangement. In the case of a single adult with child(ren), they will be housed together and charged an additional $175 for the week as long as space permits. Evening childcare for ages 3-12 will be provided at no additional cost.

Programs for 2017


A typical day includes a lot of arts & crafts, games, swimming, jokes, snacks, silliness AND singing, singing, singing AND music class. Melissa hires a dedicated music teacher to come in after lunch each day and she performs with the children at the end of the week in the student showcase. There will also be visitations from Gathering staff each day, sort of like mini-concerts, just for the kids!
