There are a LOT of violin summer camps for school age students and a fair number for those up to end of college. And there are a few camps for accomplished violinists - young professionals, often hosted at prestigious institutes.
The opportunities for adults are somewhat different. On the one hand there are camps for beginners and the other for accomplished adults to enjoy the instrument - mostly by playing chamber music. However, the emphasis of most adult camps seems to be on participation in music rather than training. [In a way, this seems to mirror the competition scene]
Thus, what I seek is an 'immersion' camp for serious violin study at the intermediate-early advanced level. And I don't really care where it is (would love to go to europe ;) )! The ideal place will have daily private lessons, practise sessions with an accompanist; lessons in theory, performance, and repertoire and also opportunities for chamber music and performance.
