Non-Playing Spouses, Companions, and Chaperones
Spouses and companions of students, or chaperones of minor students, who will not be attending classes may register for MUC on the following basis:
1) Student and the spouse/companion/chaperone sign up for double occupancy. The student pays the full double occupancy rate, while the spouse/companion/chaperone pays $270 (1/2 the full rate).
2) Commuter Companion Rate is $244 (1/2 the full rate) and of course does not include lodging.
This special rate entitles the spouse/companion/chaperone to the full meal plan, and access to demonstrations and concerts. They may NOT attend classes. To register as a spouse/companion/chaperone, click the appropriate box on the registration form and indicate whom you are attending with. Note: Please submit a separate Registration Form of each registrant, including for a spouse/companion/chaperone.
Rent a Set of Linens
Students staying in the dormitories must either supply their own linens and bedding, or rent a set from Olivet College (the charge this year is $12 per set). To order a set of linens in advance, simply check the appropriate box on the registration form. NOTE: IF YOU CAN, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOUR BRING YOU OWN PILLOW, BLANKET, TOWELS, WASHCLOTH, AND PERSONAL ITEMS as the ones from the college are so-so in quality and comfort. The mattress size is 38” x 80”, extra-long twin sheets
The linen sets rented from Olivet come with the following items:
- pillow and blanket
- 2 sheets & 1 pillow case
- 2 bath towels & washcloth
- Packet containing shampoo, cream rinse, body wash & drinking cup
Reminder: if you elect to supply your own linens, you will also need to bring a pillow and blanket.
Minor Students: Students under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult in order to attend MUC as either a commuter or resident. They also must bring along a Permissions Form signed by the parent. If the accompanying adult is not a parent, he or she needs to bring along a document signed by a parent which authorizes him or her to act in loco parentis at our Camp, a role we refer to as Camp Guardian. Please click here to download a copy of the Parental Authorization Form. Parents or Camp Guardians of minor students may register as students, or if they don’t wish to attend classes may register at the chaperone rate, which is identical to the non-playing spouse rate (see above). To register as a spouse/companion/chaperone, click the appropriate box on the registration form and you will automatically be charged the appropriate amount.
Payment: Payment must be made in full at the time of registration. This is done online as part of our registration.
If you wish to pay by check, fill out this registration form. At the end of the registration, instead of paying with a credit card, check the box that says “Mail In Payment.” Instructions on where to send your payment will appear and you will be able to finalize your registration. Once you have received your email confirmation, please send MUC your registration check (made out to Midwest Uke Camp) to the address below. When we receive it your registration will be finalized and you will get another confirmation email.

Extra Nights’ Lodging
If it best suits your travel plans, you may also reserve a bed on the nights directly preceding or following Camp (Thursday, June 20 and Sunday, June 24). The cost is $45 per night, per person and you can sign up when you register. The Olivet cafeteria will only be open from Friday dinner thru Sunday lunch, so if you stay on campus on either Thursday or Sunday evening you will need to find other sources for meals. Olivet is a small town, but has a few restaurants and sandwich/pizza shops, a café, and a sports bar. Alternatively, there are plenty of dining options in nearby Charlotte and Marshall.
Rental cars are available at the Lansing Capital City Airport. As of November 2019 you could rent cars beginning at about $30 per day.
There are several Taxi companies that service the airport. It’s about a 30 mile ride one-way, and the last time we checked they gave us rough prices between $70 and $95 each way. We also checked Uber/Lyft prices in Sept. 2019; their one way estimates were in the $50 range. FYI, if you do wish to take a cab, direct line phones to some taxi companies are right near the exit in the baggage claim area.
Cancellations and Refunds: Until April 25, 2020, your tuition is fully refundable. For cancellations beginning 12:01 AM on May 23, 2020, everything is refunded except $100. For cancellations made on or after June 19, 2020, everything is refunded except $200. There are no refunds for cancellations that take place after midnight, June 27, 2020, or for those students who simply fail to show up to MUC with no notice.
If you have any questions or concerns, please send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d rather talk by phone, email us at this address with your phone number and suggested times to call and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
