What if I change my mind about the instrument I want to play after I apply?
You can choose to study guitar, bass, drums, keys or vocals. Please indicate your first, second, fourth and fifth choices of instrument on the application. Although we do our best to accommodate everyone’s preferences, some campers will not get their first choice of instrument. Due to the need to acquire gear in advance, you cannot change your selection after you send in your application, and you cannot change instruments during camp.
All the spots are full for this particular LRC. Should I still try to sign up?
Yes! Send us your application, and we’ll put you directly on the waitlist. There are often cancellations or changes, and we always end up moving campers from the waitlist to enrollment in our programs. We’ll contact you to let you know that you’re on the waitlist and then contact you again if there are openings in the program you applied for.
How do I pay for LRC?
When you apply, you’ll be asked to pledge what you can pay. If you’re accepted, we’ll contact you within two weeks to confirm tuition and will request payment at that time. Please contact [email protected] for information regarding payment plans or questions regarding tuition.
We don’t live in Seattle. Am I eligible to apply?
Yes! We always have a few campers who aren’t from Washington. We don’t provide lodging or accommodations, and we are unable to give campers other participants’ personal information. We do, however, encourage campers and families to network with their peers through our parent/caregiver Facebook group, which is available once your application has been accepted. If you’re coming from out of town and would like more information about the Seattle area, please contact us at [email protected]
Is LRC only about music?
Music is the vehicle, but our goal is to empower all of our participants (and staff alike) to engage their creative potential, champion equity, further develop confidence and self-esteem, and thrive in our community of allies, activists, peers and mentors. We consider our programs equally successful if our participants speak up for the things they believe in, even after camp has happened.
I have a guitar at home that I would like to use at LRC! Can I bring it along to camp?
Instruments will be provided for use at camp during the camp weekend. If you have your own instrument, please feel free to bring it, knowing that you will be responsible for keeping it safe. Please note that Rain City Rock Camp does not accept liability for personal instruments.
Do you provide lunch or other meals for campers during the day?
LRC provides snacks and dinner on the Friday of camp, all meals and snacks on the Saturday of camp, and breakfast and lunch on the Sunday of camp. Please make us aware of any food allergies or intolerances on your application.
What is your cancellation policy?
Campers who cancel more than 30 days prior to the first day of camp programming will be issued a tuition refund, minus a $50 deposit fee. If you cancel 30 days or fewer from the first day of camp, you forfeit tuition and will not be issued a refund. For more details, consult our full cancellation policy.
