Become a Host Family
We are SO grateful for your willingness to open up your home to our students. We try to keep the price for camp low, and putting kids up in a hotel for a week is a real financial burden for our Academy. With the help of wonderful people such as yourself, we are able to not only offer camp to more kids, but also provide them an opportunity to really connect with the local community in such a beautifully personal way. Thank you for your warm hearts and warm homes.
As a host family we would need the following accomodations for each individual student:
(Note: host families must host at least two students)
Some things to know about host family housing:
Curfew - You can expect campers each night by the 10 o’clock curfew. We will conduct nightly phone calls to ensure that students are home on time. Though it’s not expected, if students are late for curfew or leaving in the middle of the night, you can contact our mentor team phone number. We would be so grateful.
Expect Respect - Students should keep their personal items in their private areas and not in public spaces. They should be quiet as to not disturb your home. That being said, they may stay up and rehearse their music upon arriving home. They will keep it quiet.
Visitors - Only those students that have been assigned to your home should be in your home. No other students/people without your permission are allowed in your home. Please notify us if this is happening so we can remedy the situation and ensure it does not happen again.
Food - All meals and snacks will be provided for students at the Academy. So, though food is welcome, it is by NO means expected.
If you have any concerns about your guests at any point, please contact our mentor staff at our main office line as listed on our contact sheet 24 hours a day.
