Tuition for The Candyman Strings & Things Summer Rock Camp is $500.00. This program operates with limited resources and we rely on donations and support from the community to assist with scholarship funding.
We ask those who can afford to pay full tuition to please do so as we have a limited number of scholarships available.
Our Scholarship application process is based on honesty and confidentiality. Applying for a scholarship is simple as we do not require financial or supporting documents, just honesty in providing us the information. Prior to requesting a full or partial scholarship, The Candyman asks that you first attempt to raise funds toward tuition in other ways.
