Hey Days Registration

We accept only full-time registrants. Campers are generally 18 or older, though we will consider younger applicants if accompanied by a parent, guardian, or designated responsible adult.

The full fee of $1,005 includes room, board, and tuition. Participants staying off-site pay a reduced fee of $805, which includes tuition and all meals. Please note: we can allow only a certain percentage of people to stay off-site.

A deposit of $150 per person ($100 for youth scholarships) is due with each application.

If the week is oversubscribed on February 9, we will hold a drawing of all applications postmarked by February 1. We will consider applications postmarked after February 1 in order of receipt. If you register online and don't use Paypal to pay, the postmark date of an application is the postmark date on the mail that contains the camp deposit.

We will email notification of acceptance or waiting list status by February 15. Note: Acceptance notifications and all other correspondence and packets will be sent via the email address from your registration form, unless you specify otherwise.

Your final balance is due on May 26. Any registrations after May 26 must be paid in full.

Indicate any interest in scholarships (you may apply for more than one) on the application form. For the best chance of getting the scholarship you want, submit your application by the February 1 postmark deadline. We will return your deposit if you don’t receive a scholarship and are therefore unable to attend. Find details and download the various scholarship forms (available in December) at the scholarship portion of our website.

If you don’t need a scholarship yourself, please consider making a donation towards the scholarship fund (to help make camp available to everyone across the economic spectrum) as part of your registration. You may donate by check to the address above or online.

Because Sonoma State University provides all dining hall support and other basic services, we do not need all campers to sign up for a chore. However, we have important tasks, such as dance floor maintenance, auction set up, and camp set up and strike, for which we need Work-Trade Scholarship folks. All are eligible to apply for this scholarship.

‘Youth’ Scholarships are available to campers age 18-30.

The Jude Biggs scholarship is for a talented, aspiring dance musician to attend camp for free.

We are also pleased to be able to offer several Need-Based Scholarships. You must indicate the amount you need.
