This camp is not competitive. The “band scramble” creates groups with a mix of experience; the more experienced players guide the less experienced in learning the “mechanics” of forming a band, choosing songs, arranging and choreographing how the songs will be performed, and then performing their songs in front of an audience. There is a strong sense of community among the campers, and this is why many, including myself, return year after year.
Incredible! Far exceeded expectations!!

Is there anything better than world-class Bluegrass and Ghost Ranch? Yes! The addition of more music and vocal opportunities!
Fine-tune your ensemble playing and harmony singing while you enjoy the magnificent scenery. During your stay you will sharpen your skills on your instrument, make new friends, get a bluegrass band together and perform for the other campers, all in a low-stress, high-fun environment. Learn the basics of bluegrass on your choice of five instruments, along with ensemble playing, lead and harmony singing, performance and songwriting. Your early registration will ensure your spot in the sessions for your instrument of choice.
