Thursday June 15th through Sunday June 18th
Sempervirens Outdoor School
20161 Big Basin Highway
(off Highway 9 in Boulder Creek)
Musical styles range from Irish and Scottish to American traditional. Participants will get the full music immersion experience of learning in small workshop settings in the morning and early afternoon, and sessions bringing it all together in the late afternoon and evening, plus lots of informal jamming. Perfect for experienced players who want to up their game, or those who have been meaning to get that fiddle out of the closet. All levels welcome! Open to players of fiddle, flute, pennywhistle, recorder, oboe, harp, guitar, dulcimer, accordion, percussion, banjo, mandolin, keyboards, and more! Other activities include singing, dancing, swimming, crafts, campfire, hiking, and bamboo flute making.

Located at the Sempervirens Outdoor School in sunny Boulder Creek (about an hour and a half from the Bay Area), the camp offers a combination of rustic camping, shared cabins, and a swimming pool. Shower and restroom facilities are a short walk away. Parking is extremely limited; carpooling is encouraged. A small number of spaces for RVs/trailers less than 27’ long are available. Parking permits will be required, and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Once parking permits are sold out, the nearest parking option is at Little Basin Campground, 1.5 miles away. We will arrange for a limited shuttle service to get people to and from their cars at Little Basin.
