General Information

We accept only full-time registrants. Campers are generally 18 or older, though we will consider younger applicants if accompanied by a parent, guardian, or designated responsible adult.

The full fee of $1,220 includes room, board, and tuition. Participants staying off-site pay a reduced fee of $850, which includes tuition and all meals. Please note: we can allow only a certain number of people to stay off-site.

A deposit of $200 per person ($100 for youth scholarships) is due with each application.

Acceptance notifications and all other correspondence and packets will be sent via the email address from your registration form, unless you specify otherwise.

Your final balance is due on May 17. Any registrations after May 17 must be paid in full.

Registration Form

Registration for 2024 is now closed.


Apply for scholarships (you may apply for more than one) directly on the application form (there are no additional forms to fill out). For the best chance of getting the scholarship you want, submit your application by the postmark deadline. We will return your deposit if you don’t receive a scholarship and are therefore unable to attend. Find details at the scholarship portion of our website.

If you don’t need a scholarship yourself, please consider making a donation towards the scholarship fund (to help make camp available to everyone across the economic spectrum) as part of your registration. You may donate by check to the address above or online here:

Because Sonoma State University provides all dining hall support and other basic services, we do not need all campers to sign up for a chore. However, we have important tasks, such as dance floor maintenance, auction set up, and camp set up and strike, for which we need Work-Trade Scholarship folks. All are eligible to apply for this scholarship, however we have no more available work-trade scholarships this year.

Youth Scholarships are available to campers age 18-30.

The Jude Biggs scholarship is for a talented, aspiring dance musician to attend camp for free.

We are also pleased to be able to offer several Need-Based Scholarships. You must indicate the amount you need. Unfortunately, we have no more need-based scholarships available this year.

COVID-19 Policies

Vaccination: While we recommend that you have up-to-date COVID-19 vaccinations, it is not required. 

Masking: Masking will be optional at camp. If anyone tests positive at camp, masking will be required for at least 24 hours. (We recommend that you wear masks in any indoor public setting the week prior to camp.)

Testing: We encourage you to take a COVID-19 test 24-48 hours prior to arrival at camp, especially if flying. Upon arrival at camp, you must show a negative COVID-19 test taken within the last 6 hours. Please bring three additional COVID-19 test kits to camp. There will be additional rounds of testing on Tuesday and Thursday. If anyone tests positive at camp, additional testing may be required. Rapid antigen, PCR, or NAAT tests may be used for COVID-19 testing.

Cancellation Policy 

Your $200 deposit is non-refundable. From May 17 on, your full fee is non-refundable, with the following exception: We will offer a full refund of your registration fee, minus your $200 deposit, if you contract COVID and will not have completed your isolation period before camp starts or are still symptomatic. Other situations will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

If you need to cancel, please notify the registrar, Alex Bradley via phone at (301) 789-5425 or via email at bacdsheydaysreg@gmail.com as soon as possible. Your cancellation may allow someone else to attend camp. Please note that your cancellation is not confirmed until the registrar has spoken with you or replied to your email.
