A Week At Camp

Basic Information



Arrival At Camp







Before you register: What You Need to Know

The easiest way to register for Swing Camp is through the online registration system on the Sorrento Centre website (sorrentocentre.ca/register/). If that doesn’t work for you, you are welcome to phone Sorrento Center. 1-866-694-2421 (toll free) or 1-250-675-2401 (long distance charges may apply).

Registration by email will not be possible on the first day of registration (May 10th). However, from May 11th until August 12th, you will be able to email Sorrento Centre to let them know you would like to come to camp. They will be happy to contact you for details (Don’t forget to give them your phone number!)


A New Way to Register Groups Who Are Sharing Accommodation

If you are registering as a group: one member of the group will register all of you and will be responsible for payments for the group. Before you start, this is what you will need to know for each person in your group:

• The date of arrival and departure
(usually August 13th & August 19th);
• contact information;
• email address;
• choice of early morning seminar;
• instructor’s name;
• preferred accommodation;
• preferred meal plan (if any) including preferences (vegetarian, celiac, lactose free, nut free) and allergies.

If you require an RV site, you will also need to know the size of the RV and your vehicle.

Donít forget to register your pet too!


Registration Information for Singles

If you are not planning to share accommodation, you will register exactly as a group would.

If you would like to share accommodation...
Because of Covid considerations, Sorrento Centre will no longer automatically book individual guests into shared accommodation (for example a shared cabana or lodge room). If you would like to share accommodation you can let the folks at Sorrento Centre know that you are willing to share with one or more guests. You can also ask that you be added to the wait list.


BC Swing Camp Bursary Fund

The BC Swing Camp bursary fund has made it possible for many wonderful musicians to join us at Swing Camp. We have never had to turn away anyone for lack of funds. We know that, for many people, the last few years have been difficult. If you would love to come to camp, but canít manage the full cost, please donít hesitate to get in touch. rosemary@uniserve.com

If you would like to contribute to the bursary fund you can donate when you register. You can also contact rosemary@uniserve.com

If you live in the Vancouver area, please join us at the BC Swing Camp Bursary Fundraiser Concert on Friday, July 7th, at the Seymour United Church in North Vancouver at 1200 Parkgate Avenue. Doors open at 7:00 pm. Hope to see you there! Thanks!
