Applying is easy!
Just start with Step One and Step Two below and we will help you do the rest.
If you have any questions at any time, feel free to send an email to us at
First, you should download and fill up the Application Form for Songs of Hope™ or Global Reach™. Be sure to use the correct form:
If you believe you will need financial aid, first submit your application. You will need to be accepted before you apply for financial aid.
Submit your Application Form to us as soon as possible. To submit your completed Application Form, attach it to an email and send the email to us at:
Because we seek participants from countries worldwide, admission is somewhat selective and there are limited places, so it is important to apply EARLY.
We will accept applications until all summer places are filled. When you submit your Application Form, we will acknowledge receipt by return email within three days. If you do not hear from us, please send a follow-up email. There are occasional problems with servers, Spam filters, internet providers, etc.
After we receive your application, sit tight! We will make a decision within 7 business day.
If your child is accepted, you will receive a Registration Packet.
You will need to complete the Registration Packet and return the completed forms to us within 21 days. We cannot guarantee your child's place in Songs of Hope™ or Global Reach™ for more than 21 days after we send the Registration Packet to you unless the completed forms are returned in time.
If you believe you will need financial aid, this is the right time to apply: notify us immediately via email, a financial aid application will be sent to you.
An application fee is due when you return your completed Registration Packet materials. This Application Deposit is US $200 for Songs of Hope™ and US $150 for Global Reach™. The fee is refundable if you need to cancel your registration, provided you cancel by April 15.
The Tuition Fee is your remaining fee (usually, the full fee due from you minus your previous Application Deposit) and it must be paid no later than fourteen days before the first day of the project unless you make special arrangements with us.
Sounds of Hope, Ltd. celebrates all kinds of diversity and does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, ethnic or national origin, economic status, sexual or gender orientation, gender, culture, physical or other abilities or challenges. However, Songs of Hope™ is a private camp that chooses participants selectively, and we reserve the right to deny any application for any reason, including a physical or mental condition that we do not feel we are able to accommodate reasonably.
IMPORTANT: In exchange for receiving your completed application, application deposit, and completed Registration Packet, we will reserve a place for your child and hire artistic and program staff. Much of our planning is based on the number of participants whom we accept. Therefore, there is no refund of any payments of fee after May 15 for Songs of Hope™ and April 15 for Global Reach™. Also, there will be no refund or reduction of any amount of the Fee for any participant's late arrival, early withdrawal, non-arrival, or dismissal from the project.
Because Songs of Hope is a global camp, it is impossible for us to schedule the project to fit all the school schedules of all the schools in the world. Therefore, we understand that some participants may need to arrive late or leave early. Don't let that stop you from applying! We are happy to make special arrangements to the extent we can. Just send us an email to explain your scheduling challenges.
Also, we have had many participants who miss some school to be in the camp. We are happy to arrange a study room for participants to keep up with studies while attending Songs of Hope™.
Also, if you think some learning may qualify for off-campus credit, we can supply written information to schools about the learning activities during Songs of Hope™. And, it is relatively easy for us to arrange video-conferences with faraway teachers, so be sure to ask us about arrangements, if needed.
