Summer Camp Registration and Fees

We have decided to take a pause on running the DUSS Summer Camp for the time being. This is to ensure that our year-long program has the attention and preparation it needs to run smoothly, and that our staff and teachers have a much needed break in between semesters. We will update our website and let the music education community know if and when Summer Camp resumes.
