Are there travel restrictions to the International Peace Garden?
What grade should I say I am in when I register?
IMC determines grade levels based on the grade you JUST COMPLETED. That way you can come one last time right after you graduate from High School.
Do I need to have a passport?
Passports are not required to get in and out of the International Peace Garden, but are the recommended form of identification. If you do not already have a passport, you will need a birth certificate (everyone in the vehicle) and photo ID (if you are 16 or older) to return to your country of origin upon leaving IMC and the Peace Garden. Each passenger in every vehicle are expected to present these documents.
This special exemption applies only to the Dunseith and Boissevain ports of entry.
Passports will be required for US citizens to travel to Canada and for Canadians to enter the US.
Please check for the latest information at www.internationalmusiccamp.com or call the winter office (701-838-8472). It’s very important to be prepared, regardless of what you need in order to pass through Customs. If you do need to apply for a new passport or passport card, please allow plenty of time!
