The "Regular Camp" cost for 2016 is $516; one price covers tuition, evening events, room, and board for the weekend from Friday noon to Sunday afternoon. Commuters can get the whole package minus the room for $460.
The "Extra Day" cost is $152 more, i.e. $668; that one price covers all events, tuition, room, and board for the Extra Day and the Regular Camp, i.e. Thursday afternoon through Sunday afternoon. Commuters can get the whole package with the Extra Day but without the room for $585.
Our discounted "Spouse Rates" cover everything but classes (i.e. room, board, concerts, and evening activities are all included). The resident spouse rate is $258 (half price) for the Regular Camp and $410 for the Regular Camp and the Extra Day. The commuter spouse rate is $230 (again, half price) for the Regular Camp and $355 for the Regular Camp and the Extra Day. See the Couples and Groups paragraph on the registration notes page for more information.
All tuition cost figures are per person and are in US dollars. We cannot take payments in any foreign currency via check. Foreign bank checks in US dollars are acceptable if made out to: "Ken Perlman for American Banjo Camp".
The registration notes page gives further details on tuition options.
We can offer work/trade positions which reduce the tuition by $100 in exchange for up to 5 hours of work at camp or $200 in exchange for up to 10 hours of work. The work/trade positions are given out in a first-come first-served basis. Here are some details.
Supported by the generosity of our students we have a scholarship program for people who could not afford to come to camp without financial aid and for whom a work/trade position would not suffice. If you want to come to camp but simply can't afford it, consider an ABC Scholarship.
