Dear Campers, Parents, SMSC Faculty and Friends,

It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that Southern Maine String Camp 2020 has been cancelled.  The challenges of having a safe camp as we recover from the global pandemic has led the YMCA Camp of Maine to cancel their entire season.  SMSC has been a part of the Maine string summer for 50 years so this decision did not come easily, but we must follow the lead of the YMCA Camp of Maine and make this difficult but safe decision. 

If you have made any payment toward this year’s camp it will be refunded to you.

We are going to postpone our 50th Anniversary celebration to next summer.  The Maine American String Teacher’s Association Board has some exciting plans to make it a very special week. Alumni campers and staff will be invited and warmly welcomed for a special celebration.  I hope to see you all there.

Next year we will be back for another wonderful week of great music, great friends and the great outdoors on beautiful Lake Cobbosseecontee .  

So keep practicing, and be sure to check out our social media for a fun surprise from the faculty.

We will see you in 2021!
