Students coming from out of town should make their own hotel reservations at our NEW hotel, the Holiday Inn Oceanside in Vero Beach. You can book your room by calling them directly at 772-231-2300, or toll-free at 1-888-670-7470. Make sure to mention "in-house reservations for the Mike Block String Camp" in order receive our group discount rate (see below).

Due to increased call volume, you may be transferred to their "Reservations Line" - please use our group code: "MBS" in this event. You must book your room by June 2 in order to receive the group discount.

Room Options in our Group Discount:
Single/Double Room: $149/night (Note: You can split a double room with more than two people, if desired)
Oceanfront room: $189/night

The Holiday Inn Oceanside is located at 3384 Ocean Drive, and its back door opens right onto a beautiful beach, where most of the socializing will happen after class! We are located in the exciting Vero neighborhood of Central Beach, surrounded by many nice coffee shops, restaurants, ice cream, bars, etc, all within walking distance. See pictures and more info about the Holiday Inn Oceanside. If you are attending camp alone, but still want to find roommates to share in Lodging costs, join our Facebook Group (this is different than "Liking" the Facebook Page) in order to post and connect with other MBSC students directly. Children under 18 must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times. Children 15-18 years of age may attend camp by themselves (without parent/guardian), if they submit a letter signed by a parent/guardian relieving the camp from any legal liability, as we will not monitor student's out-of-class activities. That being said, we are usually all hanging out together, anyway!!

NOTE ABOUT FOOD: Unlike previous years of camp, we will be providing 3 meals a day for non-local students as part of the "Full Fee". You will not need to bring your own lunches to school, or cook your own dinner anymore! :)
