Zoe Klimley was a lovely, vibrant seventeen-year-old who attended Richard Thompson’s “Frets & Refrains” Guitar and Songwriting camp in 2013, making an impression on everyone there through her vivacity, enthusiasm, bravery, and warmth. When she died suddenly in the first days of 2014, we who knew her from that week — from her fellow campers to Richard Thompson, his wife Nancy, and the rest of the counselors – agreed to establish a scholarship fund in her honor.
We are very pleased to be able to again offer a small number of scholarships of up to $1250 for young people, aged 16* to 25, to attend Frets & Refrains in 2016. [*Please note that applicants under 18 will need to submit a Parental Consent Form in order to attend.] Each scholarship is meant to defray the cost of one Tent Camping package, but it may be applied toward the somewhat higher cost of a shared room, depending on availability. [Please see our pricing page for all the details.] Note: If you do not already have a roommate in mind, Full Moon can help with this.
We are primarily looking for enthusiastic, young first-timers with a passion for music who are eager to participate and learn but could not afford to do so without help from the Zoe Scholarship fund. We will accept applications from returning younger campers, with the understanding that we will give priority to young newcomers who would not be able to attend camp (or would find it very difficult to do so) in the absence of a scholarship.
For more information on submitting for a scholarship, please download this application form and follow the steps detailed to make a submission.
