Advance registration is required (no guests or visitors, please). Registrations will be processed (and receipts sent) as they are received.

Total cost (tuition + room + board) for a session is $625 or $590 (in U.S. funds), depending on accommodation--tenting is less expensive. A deposit of $200 (U.S. funds) reserves a space. The balance of $425 or $390 is due on arrival at camp.

Refunds of $150 will be given for all cancellations prior to July 4 and of $75 for cancellations between July 4 and two days before your session starts. No refunds will be given for cancellations or "no shows" after that time. Of course, if we have to refuse your registration (e.g. due to lack of space), your entire deposit will be returned.

Scholarships are available for up to half of the cost. A completed preregistration with a deposit of $200 is required to receive a scholarship application form (check the appropriate box on your registration). Your entire deposit will be returned and your registration voided if we can't offer you a scholarship. Completed scholarship application forms must be received by May 1.

Puget Sound Guitar Workshop is a camp for adults of all ages, but please consult with us by phone prior to registering any adults under age 18.

Our scholarship program is supported by donation. We wish to thank the many individuals whose contributions have helped make scholarships possible. If you would like to become one of the people we thank, simply include some extra funds in your check and mention it on the registration form (and thanks).


All registration requests must be accompanied by a deposit ($200 per person per session) payable to "Puget Sound Guitar Workshop." Sorry, we cannot accept e-mail or fax registrations.
