Get excited - we have finalized the instructors for Fall Camp 2017! Billy Strings, Tim May, Kenny and Amanda Smith, and Adam Schlenker - registration opens June 1, 2017
Registration Update - Spring camp is now SOLD OUT. We allow previous campers to sign up early so that's why you see it sold out before public registration opens. But please please please, get on the waiting list if you're interested in coming. We almost always have an opening come up. And that's how you become a previous camper!

Spring Edition - March 17-19, 2017
In the woods above Nashville, TN, there is a camp for flatpickers of all levels and most ages. It is held in a beautiful home surrounded by trees and creeks and bonfire pits perfect for late night jamming. Many of the greatest flatpickers alive will be teaching there but only 15 students will be allowed to sign up - guaranteeing the most incredible learning experience offered in modern music camping.
You will stay on-site or travel from your home each day and learn from the masters. In the afternoons there will be jams where you may very well find yourself picking Red Haired Boy or Big Sciota across from Kenny Smith or possibly Amanda Smith sings harmony with you while you sing and pick with Adam Schlenker.
On Sunday of camp you will record a tune with one of these flatpicking heroes with a real-deal professional engineer. It's mind-boggling, really. And a new treat! We'll be hosting a private shopping experience at the new and incredible Carter Vintage Instruments store in downtown Nashville. Listen to some of the instructors demo the finest guitars in all the land after the store has closed and the public has all gone home.
