Camp Harmony (New Year’s Camp)  Our biggest camp is Camp Harmony.  Camp Harmony 2024-25 will run from Wednesday December 27th,  2024 until Monday January 1st, 2025.  We are very happy to again be having in-person New Year’s camps, starting with Camp Harmony 2023-24.

Camp Harmony lasts five days and nights, and is restricted to SFFMC members and their families. For the 2023-24 and 2024-25 camps, we have returned to Camp Newman, between Calistoga and Santa Rosa, which has been rebuilt since the fire there in 2017.  There are heated lodging facilities and a central dining hall where we ate together for three meals per day – plus workshops, concerts, dancing and the usual unstructured singing and jamming.  More information about Camp Harmony is here.

In recent years we have also held a related online multi-day event called Spring Harmony Online.  We plan to continue Spring Harmony as an annual online event.

Summer Campouts/Gatherings  On the weekends of Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor Day we have multi-day music gatherings in the Bay Area, featuring lots of musical and outdoor activities for the whole family. Most people now come for “day use” and go home to sleep, but overnight camping (including motorhome parking) is also available for those who want it.

Since 2021, our summer gatherings have been at Camp Herms, a 20-acre camp high in the El Cerrito hills.  Details are here.
