Hello Makin' Music Families,
We appreciate your patience while we were weighing our options regarding Summer camps.
Based on your input and the guidelines set forth by the CDC and PA Health Department, we believe it would be best to cancel Makin' Music camps for Summer 2020. This has been a very difficult decision for us, and we realize it will be especially hard for our campers, counselors and families that look forward to joining us at camp each Summer. We just can't imagine having all of our campers and staff in masks and socially distanced from each other while still providing the great experiences that you have become accustomed to while being a part of the Makin' Music family.
Here are your options for refunds or credits for 2020 Makin' Music camp registration tuition -
You may request a full refund (minus CC processing fees). Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a refund and we will return your tuition payment (minus CC processing fees) to the card that you used to enroll online.
Credit your child(ren)'s camp enrollment and tuition to next Summer's programs. If you choose this option, we will reach out to you as soon as we open camp registration next year and you will have priority enrollment. Email us at email@example.com to be placed on the priority early enrollment list for next Summer.
Credit your child(ren's) tuition to private lessons or group classes at Rockdale Music. We are currently offering virtual lessons and will be running small group classes for ages 4+ as soon as we complete our new studio renovations. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in more information regarding our private lessons or programs.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer a credit for Makin' Music classes, as a few of you had mentioned in the survey. We are a licensee of the Makin' Music camp curriculum, but we are a separate entity.
Cancelling camps will be a big blow to us financially, but we will survive the tumultuous year that lies behind and ahead of us and plan to return better than ever next year. We are currently renovating a new space for Rockdale Music, which will be reopening this Summer for in person private lessons and small group programming!
We again thank you for your patience and support through these uncertain times, and we hope you understand that this decision has been weighing on us for several weeks. Our campers, counselors and their families' health and safety is of paramount importance, and we cannot see how running camps this Summer would exemplify the goal of keeping everyone healthy and safe.
If you have any questions or comments, please email me at email@example.com or call me at 610-459-4096 if you would like to discuss anything in more detail.
Enjoy your Summer! We already miss Makin' Music with you!
