Plan a Rocky Mountain summer vacation and Cabin Camp, all in one! Bigfork, Montana, is one of the most beautiful locations in the world–made even BETTER with bluegrass! Come join me!

INSTRUMENTS:Banjo, Guitar, Mandolin!

DATE: August 15-17, 2024

Camp begins at 2PM Thursday, August 15 and will last until 9PM. We will have a full 9AM-9PM day on Friday, then a half day on Saturday from 9AM-3PM.

LOCATION: Beautiful private residence in Bigfork, MT! Approximately 30 minutes from Glacier National Park!

MEALS PROVIDED:Supper on Thursday, Lunch & Supper Friday, and Lunch on Saturday. Guest passes available for purchase for Thurs/Fri suppers and Sat lunch.

PRICE:$899 each, with guest meal passes available for purchase!

Skill Level: 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. 

Preparation: I will help you prepare! I'll send you some tunes we'll be working on, as well as other tips to get you ready. 


I keep it small. I want to get to know you and join you on your pickin' journey. I'll have some of the BEST instructors in the biz!
