High School students may join the CCM Preparatory apprentice program. This program is limited to local and current preparatory students. Apprentices earn tuition credit by assisting with our camps for youth. We look for enthusiastic, responsible young adults who have familiarity and comfort with the arts. Contact the CCM Prep office for an application for the apprentice program.
Rehearsals and activities are offered over the weekend, and we want participants to take full advantage of their time with us. If there is a particular reason (a wedding or family reunion, for example) that would necessitate your child's absence, you must check in advance with both the Workshop director and the Immersion Housing coordinator. After obtaining prior approval, an adult family member must personally sign out the student and sign the student back in on his/her return.
Most of students' time is very structured, including evenings and weekends. In any unscheduled time, students will be able to choose from a variety of recreational and educational offerings.
