Housing Arrangements

The Main Lodge, reserved exclusively for RMFC, has hotel-style rooms with capacity for 6, each with a double bed and two sets of bunks (up and down) and full bathroom. All bedding and towels are provided.

The RMFC fee includes housing for 4 in a room (more if convenient or requested). If your party is less than 4, you will be sharing a room with a similarly configured party, selected for compatibility based on age and gender.

If your party is 4 or more, you will have your own room.

If your party is 5 or more, you may want to register for the Group Rates (see below)

The Activity Center, also reserved exclusively for RMFC,  has larger sleeping rooms with up to 10 beds, all bunks.  No bedding nor towels are provided.  There is a discount of $25/person/week if you choose this option.

If you are a party of 3 or less, you may have a room to yourselves for an additional payment of $450 for the week (for the room, not per person). This can be requested on the registration form.

RV, Tents, & Campers

There are several sites available for RV’s & Tents.  If you would like to do this, you must reserve your own site here:  You will pay our host camp, Golden Bell, directly for the site.  RMFC will provide a discount of $360 (per party) to RV & Tent campers.

Group Rates

If you are a Group of 5 or more, the rate is $810/person.  If your Group is 6 or more, the rate is $780/person.  This Group Rate overrides the distinction between Adult, Youngster, or Guardian, and the Family discount.

Full balance is due by June 30.  If we have to cancel due to Covid-19, all amounts are refundable.  Alternatively, you may roll forward your registration to 2021 for a $25/person discount.

Group rates apply only to those attendees who wish to live in the lodge dedicated to RMFC. If any member(s) of your group would rather bring their own tent, RV, or camper, they should register separately.


Attendance Privileges

Rocky Mountain Fiddle Camp reserves the right to disallow attendance to anyone. Campers’ behavior is expected to comport with the fun, musical, and easy-going atmosphere and spirit of the camp. Any camper whose behavior contradicts such atmosphere and spirit, in the sole discretion of the Director, will be invited to leave and may be denied attendance in the future.


How to Apply for Scholarship Aid

To contribute:  The Rocky Mountain Fiddle Camp Scholarship Fund (RMFCSF) is an IRS approved 501(c)(3) organization.  All contributions are tax deductible.  If you wish to donate, simply mail a check to “RMFCSF” to the address below at the bottom of the page.  Alternatively, email Mark Luther for guidance how to make a donation electronically.

The purpose of the Scholarship Program is to allow new campers to come to RMFC who would otherwise not be able to without financial assistance. It is not necessary to be an accomplished musician, simply dedicated to learning your instrument. Applicants should be able to demonstrate financial need. Prior scholarship winners, campers who have attended RMFC in the past, and those who can afford to come without assistance are not eligible.

Starting April 1, 2019, the Rocky Mountain Fiddle Camp Scholarship Fund will consider applicants for scholarships for the 2019 session,  August 4-11. To be considered for a scholarship, you must send in your registration and application by May 31. No applications will be considered after that date. Scholarship Awards will be made on an ongoing basis.

Scholarship grants will be for part of the camp tuition; no full scholarships are awarded. Note that a Youngster (age 16 or under) must be accompanied by an adult guardian. If you apply for a scholarship as a Youngster, your guardian should be able to pay the Guardian fee ($750). Any applicant should be prepared and able to pay travel costs to and from camp.

We also provide scholarships to groups of students affiliated with music education groups generally known as, or inspired by, “El Sistema.”  Prior examples are Harmony Project from Los Angeles and Atlanta Music Project.  If you are part of such a group, please send an email to Mark Luther, Camp Director for more information.

To promote the success and raise the visibility of the Scholarship Program, recipients will be identified at camp and are expected to play in the Campers’ “Talent/No-Talent” event on Thursday evening.
