CCMC 2022 Registration
Week 1:  July 9–15  | Week 2:  July 16–22

Camp is full!

You may still register, but you will be put on the waiting list... which is a good thing, as people do cancel.  

Registration involves two steps:

1) Pre-register campers online

2) Then pay a deposit either online through PayPal, or you can mail in a check


We encourage you to pre-register your campers online, even if you plan to pay by check. A deposit of $200 reserves a space in your preferred week.


If you'd rather print out a registration form and pay by check, go directly to Pay by Check. Download and print the registration form, fill it out, sign it, and send it with your check to:


PO Box 523

Bellingham, WA 98227-0523

We want to give as many folks as possible the opportunity to come to camp. If you are hoping to come to both weeks of camp, you must indicate which is your preferred week. We will register you in your preferred week then put you on the wait list for your second choice.

In addition, we ask that you agree to the following conditions:

  • All teachers, staff, and students must show proof of vaccination. (If you do not wish to be vaccinated or cannot be vaccinated for any reason, please plan on coming when it is safe for unvaccinated folks.)

  • Once we receive your registration and deposit we will send you a link to a secure site for you to upload photos of your vaccination card (front and back). Only the registrar will be able to see your card information. You must bring your card to camp as well. Taking a picture of your card means you always have it on your phone if you forget the paper copy.

We will keep you updated on the CDC guidelines and California protocol regarding COVID-19 and mask wearing. We will keep you updated. Conditions are subject to change based on legal and logistic requirements and recommendations.


  • Camper Pre-registration: You're presented with a form for one camper. Fill in all the required fields. Don't forget to check the privacy policy checkbox as per EU data protection rules. You will be given a chance to add another camper or pay a deposit for all the campers you have registered.

  • PaymentPay the deposit for each week and each camper. You don't need a PayPal account to pay online; PayPal will accept your credit card number. The Pay Deposit by PayPal button takes you to the payment screen where you can pay for deposits. You may also add a small donation to your payment to further offset PayPal fees and help fund the scholarship program.

  • Balance: After your registration and deposit are received, wait for an email confirming your lodging and balance amount (within a week or so after pre-registering). This email will include instructions and links for uploading your vaccination card and paying your balance. (You may also come back here and click the Pay Balance by PayPal button or go directly to PayPal and send the appropriate amount to California Coast Music Camp.)​


Price includes all meals, instruction, materials, and lodging:

  • $1,225 for a 3-person cabin

  • $1,450 for a 2-person cabin

Who Can Register

CCMC is primarily for adults 18 and older; some students aged 14–17 are accepted on a case-by-case basis (contact us for more information). No pets allowed (not even adorable, well-behaved ones).


If you cancel by June 1, we will refund all money received, less a $100 handling fee. If you cancel between June 1 and two days before your session begins, we will refund all but $200. No refunds starting from two days before your session begins. Registrations are not transferable. Send any questions or cancellation requests to info@musiccamp.org.

The Waiting List

If your preferred week is full when you register, you can do one of the following:

  • Register for the other week (if there is room)

  • Register for your preferred week or for the first available opening (which may mean the other week). Pay by check, which we will not cash until you acknowledge that you can still attend on the available week.

  • Have your deposit returned (your deposit is returned if you don't get off the waitlist)

Typically, everyone who stays on the waiting list gets into camp, but it might not happen until a day or two before camp begins (of course, we can’t promise you’ll get in). We average 10 to 12 cancellations for each week from registered campers. Some people on the waiting list cancel also. Campers as high on the waiting list as #36 have gotten in, usually at the last minute. If you cancel from the waiting list or don’t make it into camp, we'll return all the money you’ve sent us.

Arrival & Departure


Check-in at camp starts at noon on Saturday of each week. 

To help create a familiar community where everyone feels welcome and safe, we strongly discourage late arrivals. If you have obligations that delay your arrival until after 6 p.m. on Saturday please CALL US at 360-224-8007 so we’ll know when to expect you. There is no pro-rated tuition if you arrive late.

Arrivals after Sunday and drop-in visitors are not allowed.

Camp is over after breakfast on Friday. If you absolutely must leave early, you can of course do so. However, tuition is not pro-rated if you leave early.
