Update on KISSM 2020
Unfortunately, the Kamloops Music Collective has had to make the difficult decision to cancel KISSM 2020 due to health and safety concerns during this global pandemic. While we are not able to proceed with KISSM this year, we are tentatively planning to offer a series of small, one-week summer programs with restricted registration numbers and new COVID-19 protocols in place. Our goal is to maintain continuity of our programs while meeting the needs of local kids and parents in a safe and healthy way. Click the button below to find out more!
Tuition for KISSM July 6-24, 2020
Early Bird Tuition (March 1st - April 30th)
Finances should never prevent a child from participating in the arts. As a non-profit organization, the Kamloops Music Collective is committed to making our programming accessible to as many children and youth in our communities as possible. Our bursaries have helped hundreds of children to register in tuition-based programs at a reduced rate. Applications for bursary funding are open Feb. 1st - May 31 annually.
2 Weeks Tuition*
3 Weeks Tuition
Regular Tuition (May 1- June 30)
Last minute tuition (after July 1)
Full Tuition (Total amount for two weeks)
*Please email , or call
the Kamloops Music Collective Office to receive a 2 week registration code.
*Please note: Our program is based on a three week model so we always encourage registering for the full program. Course choice options are limited for two week registrants and Early Bird Registration discounts are not available.
Please note that due to the current global economic crisis, our ability to award bursaries is temporarily on hold.
We encourage families in need to still apply, and when/ if the funding becomes available, we will resume awarding bursaries.
COVID-19 Refund Policy
If the Kamloops Music Collective cancels KISSM 2020 due to the COVID 19 virus we will be giving our families the following options:
a) 100% refund, must be claimed within 21 days of KISSM being cancelled or the money becomes a credit for your family
b) A full 2021 registration at the 2020 price that you paid, must be claimed within 21 day of KISSM being cancelled and it is non-transferable. If this credit is deemed unusable by the family by April 1 2021, then we will refund 70% of the fee paid and issue a tax receipt for the remaining 30%.
c) If your family wishes to support the Kamloops Music Collective by not claiming a full refund of your registration costs, a tax receipt will be issues for the difference between what you paid and your refunded amount.
Withdrawal Policy - Due to faculty contracts we are unable offer refunds after June 1, 2020. An exception will be made in the case of a family emergency or serious illness. All refunds will be subject to a $100.00 processing fee.
