We have a new camp site!
Based on camper feedback from SHISSF 2014, 75% of campers said they would like to move camp to somewhere with a higher quality of facilities, but stay within budget. After extensive research we are pleased to announce that SHISSF 2015 will be held at Wellesley Country Park, returning to where it all began for us 12 years ago. We are excited about the upgraded facilities at Wellesley, including open fireplaces, a beautiful main room for our evening events, a higher level of overall cleanliness, and some alternative accommodation options for campers, all set overlooking the beautiful Akatarawa River. And campers from those early years will also be pleased to know that the road to camp is vastly improved!!

The only fiddle school in the region that brings the best international instructors to you!

"Seriously the best week of my life!"
