2024 Cabin Camps!

Montana and back in Texas...

HERE WE COME!


MONTANA
Banjo Ben's Cabin Camp
(Bigfork, MT)

August 15-17
(Thursday-Saturday)

$899

INSTRUMENTS: Banjo, Guitar,
& Mandolin

INSTRUCTORS: Ben Clark, Katy Lou Clark, Penny Lea Gimble, John Meyer, and others!

REGISTER HERE!



Skill Level:
Banjo, Guitar & Mandolin -Beginner to upper intermediate. Must be able to play basic rhythm chords along with slow songs and have a desire to begin soloing/improvising. If you often jam proficiently with pros, this camp may be too basic for you. If you cannot play simple chords with slow songs, this camp is too advanced for you.

Atmosphere: This camp is an intimidation-free zone! No one will be put on the spot or made to feel dumb! Mess ups are encouraged, because that means you're trying. Believe me, I mess up all the time.

Guests:Guest passes are available for purchase for Thu & Fri suppers and Sat lunch. They will not be able to attend the camp during the day.

Cancellation policy: All cancellations will incur a 3.5% processing fee. After May 15th, 2024, there will be a $250 cancellation fee; no refunds after June 15th, 2024. If for some reason the event is not able to be held, refunds will be given to all registrants.


TEXAS

(Thursday-Saturday)
$899

INSTRUMENTS:
3-Finger Banjo (Beginner, Intermediate, & Advanced)

INSTRUCTORS: Alan Munde, Bill Evans, Ben Clark, and recently added Kristin Scott Benson & Katy Lou Clark!

REGISTER HERE!


Skill Level:
I've got classes for beginner, intermediate, and advanced 3-finger banjo pickers. Here are more descriptions of the skill levels:

Beginner 3-finger class: You don't need much banjo experience, but you do need some. Don't worry, I make it easy! Simply watch and do your best to learn the following lessons on the site: Banjo Boot Camp, Banjo Hand Positions, Pickin' Your Banjo Picks, How to Read Banjo Tab, Basic Major Chords, Banjo Roll Studies, & Basic Banjo Backup. You don't have to have these lessons mastered before camp, but be familiar with the concepts and ready to learn more!

Intermediate 3-finger class: Prerequisite is to be able to play solos with tabs, be able to play basic rhythm, and ready to explore improvisation and higher intermediate techniques.

Advanced 3-finger class: You need to be confident to take solos in jams and learn new songs. You need to be able to play intermediate speeds easily and be ready to explore advanced backup and solo techniques.

Note: If you arrive at camp and feel the need to switch skill levels, you are generally free to move around...don't sweat it, just do your best to register at the correct level.

Atmosphere:This camp is an intimidation-free zone! No one will be put on the spot or made to feel dumb! Mess ups are encouraged, because that means you're trying. I mess up all the time, haha.

Guests:Guest passes are available for purchase for suppers & evening activities. They will not be able to attend the camp during the day.

Cancellation policy:All cancellations will incur a 3% processing fee. There will be a $250 cancellation fee beginning on July 24, 2024; no refunds after August 24, 2024. If for some reason the event is not able to be held, refunds will be given to those who cannot reschedule.

Can anyone attend cabin camps? I am a gold pick member, but I know a banjo player (non-member) that might be interested in the camp.

I saw in your last email a camp upcoming in Maryland. I saw Montana listed below it with dates, so when and where in Maryland are you hosting a camp so I can look at my schedule. Thanks for an awesome learning site!

My son and I are very interested in the Nashville Experience. It’s his graduation gift if we can make it happen. I would love to reserve a spot if we could. My son Ryan is quite the banjo picker and Ben is his hero. Thanks.

Regarding the Bigfork Montana Cabin Camp. Have any interest that Bruce Weber, of Weber Mandolin fame, lives there and now has a Lutherie shop just out of town? If so, let me know and I can send you contact information or speak with Bruce, whatever you would like me to do. Cwby Tim DeRoche ( a signed-up banjo student… : )

I read your Covid policy. Pretty clear but you didn’t mention the v word. Is proof of vaccination required?
Thanks
