Pocono Flute Camp 2018 is now open for registrations! The camp was designed for adult amateur flutists, but our clinicians have been wonderful at planning classes and lessons for all levels of students from high school through folks in their 80s. Campers attend classes and recital programs and have at least two 45-minute private lessons, They rehearse with coaches and perform in a chamber music group with 2 to 4 other campers who play at their level. Everyone participates in the camp flute choir. We limit our enrollment so that there are no more than 8 campers to each clinician, so all campers get a lot of individual attention. 

Our camp is based on the campus of East Stroudsburg University in the heart of the beautiful Pocono Mountains. University housing and dining make the camp uniquely affordable. 

More information can be found in their brochure PFS Flute Camp 2018 and also on their website
