All classes are self-selected.  You may take up to six classes per day if you wish, however most campers take 4 or 5 classes per day, so you can schedule some time for rest, practicing, etc.  You can take different classes all week, but it's usually more effective to settle in to the same 3 or 4 classes all week.
