New Year’s Camp Our biggest camp is Camp Harmony. Camp Harmony 2020-21 was online rather than in person this year due to the coronavirus situation. Details are here. We had a similar but shorter online event in April.
In normal years, Camp Harmony lasts five days and nights, and is restricted to Club members and their families. Our site since December 2018 has been Walker Creek Ranch in the hills above Pt. Reyes Station.
There are heated cabins and a central dining hall where we eat together for three meals per day – plus workshops, concerts, dancing and the usual unstructured singing and jamming.
Summer Campouts On the weekends of Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor Day we have music campouts in the Bay Area, featuring lots of musical and outdoor activities for the whole family. We’ll have informal musical jams in the daytime, open mics on two nights and workshops on various topics. Anyone can lead a workshop; we schedule them at camp. We hope to see you there!
Our 2021 Memorial Day and July summer campouts will be online rather than in person due to the coronavirus situation, as they were in 2020. We will have Zoom programs similar to last year. Think about leading a workshop or participating in a concert! More details about Memorial Day 2021 are here. Our 2021 Labor Day campout may be in-person, depending on the situation.
When we are able to do in-person summer campouts again (we’re hoping for Labor Day 2021) we still hope to have them at our new summer campout site in the East Bay: Camp Herms at 1100 James Place in El Cerrito. There’s a large lodge with a stage, a large kitchen and an additional room. There’s a large camping area and parking for RVs. After 10 pm, we can use the lodge for fairly quiet singing if we keep the windows closed – since this is a city site, we won’t be able to have outside jams or music after 10 pm. If the situation should change for the Labor Day camp, we will announce it here and on the Harmony list.
