MAT CAMP POLICY ON GRADE LEVELS
Due to the limited number of spaces available in our classes, we must prohibit students from registering for or transferring into classes above or below their current age/grade level. While we regret the inconvenience and disappointment this may cause, we thank you for leaving these spaces available for students who currently meet the proper age criteria our classes are designed to serve. Occasionally, exceptions are made in performing ensembles (such as Symphony Orchestra) if a younger student is an advanced player.
SCHEDULING FOR YOUNGER STUDENTS
Students gr. 5 and under cannot be left unattended on campus during hours they do not have classes. If a student has open hours in their schedule they need to either be accompanied by an adult, register for classes at those times, or leave campus. All registered students will be supervised in classes and on campus during the lunch hour. Parents of younger children are invited to visit camp the first day to help their children find classes.
Available to families in financial need. Contact us for more details.
Tuition and materials fees must be paid within one week, or your registration may be cancelled. Contact us if you need to make special payment arrangements.
If a student needs to cancel a registration, a full refund can be given on or before the early registration deadline, with 50% refund on or before the late registration deadline. No refunds can be given after the late registration deadline.
Scholarships are offered for students entering 12th grade or college this fall who are advanced on strings, wind instruments or voice. Students must be proficient in their instrumental/vocal abilities, and must register to play/sing in one or more of the large ensembles (Symphony Orchestra, Wind Symphony, Jazz Band). Students who are selected to receive a scholarship will be awarded free tuition for the large ensemble class and one additional class of their choice (any associated Materials Fees must be paid in full). For more information or to apply for a scholarship please call 307-679-2348.
Students in need of tuition assistance may request a job helping camp staff (including parents). Contact us for details.
MAT CAMP DRESS CODE
Student attire is casual for daytime and evening activities. Students who break the dress code will be asked to change into suitable attire. Those who refuse to comply may be sent home. Some performing classes may require concert dress for the final performance on Friday. Please bring black pants/skirt, stockings and shoes, and a white blouse or shirt to wear at the final concert. CLICK HERE for more information.
Wyoming teachers can earn PTSB (Professional Teaching Standards Board) credit for observing or taking/participating in MAT Camp classes. Up to two credits can be earned for attending classes each day, for all five days. Teachers should register as a student through the regular registration system, and then fill out PTSB paperwork on the last day of the program. Be sure to contact us after you register to let us know you intend to get PTSB credit, so we get you on the list.
