General Information

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 $1,175 includes room, board, and tuition. Participants staying off-site pay a reduced fee of $925, which includes tuition and all meals. Please note: we can allow only a certain percentage of people to stay off-site.

A deposit of $200 per person ($100 for youth scholarships) is due with each application.

Online registration is open!

There are still a few spaces let at camp. We will consider applications in order of receipt.

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 16. Any registrations after May 16 must be paid in full.

Registration Form

You have several ways to submit your registration.

You may submit an online registration and pay online through Paypal (we strongly encourage this option) or mail a check.

Or, you may print a registration form PDF and mail completed applications, and a check made out to BACDS, to:

BACDS Hey Days
c/o Alex Bradley
1913 Glenoaks Blvd #154
San Fernando CA 91340

International applicants - please register online and contact Allen Dodson at groguet01@gmail.com for payment options.


Apply for scholarships (you may apply for more than one) directly on the application form (there are no additional forms to fill out). For the best chance of getting the scholarship you want, submit your application by the postmark deadline. We will return your deposit if you don’t receive a scholarship and are therefore unable to attend. Find details 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 here:

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.

Covid Policies

Our goal is to provide a safe and fun camp experience. While some decisions are currently set, we have decided to delay others to May 14 so we can align our policy with the situation closer to camp.

Vaccination: Proof of up-to-date (as defined by the CDC) vaccinations required or written proof of a medical exemption from a medical doctor.
Testing: Complete a rapid antigen test upon arrival at camp. Additional tests during the week are likely. By May 14 we will decide and inform you whether we will require additional tests (and the number and timing of any additional tests). Participants will purchase and bring their own tests. If traveling from outside the Bay Area, we strongly encourage you to test before you leave home (and, if a PCR test is available for free or very little cost, we encourage you to get one).
Masking: By May 14 we will decide and inform you whether masks will be required or optional.

Cancellation Policy

Your $200 deposit is non-refundable, with the following exception: We will offer a full refund of your registration fee if you contract COVID-19 and will not have completed your isolation period before camp starts or are still symptomatic. We ask that you send us proof of a positive COVID-19 test. Other situations, such as close contact with a COVID-19 positive person, will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

If you need to cancel, please notify the registrar, Alex Bradley via phone at (301) 789-5425 or via email at bacdsheydaysreg@gmail.com as soon as possible. Your cancellation may allow someone else to attend camp. Please note that your cancellation is not confirmed until the registrar has spoken with you or replied to your email.
