Banjo Ben's Cabin Camp: Texas Farm! March 17-19, 2022!
Folks, Cabin Camp is going to TEXAS again! We're gonna have a ball. Expect a Texas-sized time with plenty of brisket BBQ & bluegrass!
INSTRUMENTS: Banjo, Guitar, & Mandolin!
LOCATION: Banjo Ben's farm near Kilgore, Texas!
PRICE: $899 each, with 3-day supper guest passes available for purchase!
Skill Level: Late beginner through intermediate. Must be able to play basic rhythm chords along with slow songs and have a desire to begin soloing/improvising. If you feel super comfortable jamming with pros, this camp maybe too basic for you. If you can't play simple chords with slow songs, this camp may betoo 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. I mess up all the time, haha. Also, the entire camp will be kid-friendly, as I have a 7 and 9-year-old who will both be hanging around and might go through your purse or wallet.
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 actually get to know you and join you on your pickin' journey. I'll have some of the BEST instructors in the biz, who happen to be my family and best friends: Katy Lou Clark on banjo, Penny Lea Clark on mandolin, & Jake Stogdill on guitar! I will be floating around teaching in each group and holding theory/jam sessions for all!
The price is $899, which includes:
Small group sessions and personal attention!
6 excellent meals!
Over $150 in gear, accessories, & setup!
Exclusive offers on General Store inventory!
Price does not include:
Lodging, which is amply available at nearby hotels.
Breakfasts for the 3 days.
Travel to/from Kilgore

Can I bring my family or friends? You may purchase supper guests passes. The guests will be welcome to join us for supper around 6PM and after-supper activities. They will not be able to attend the camp during the day.
Should I fly or drive? That's up to you! The closest airport to the farm is KGGG in Longview, TX, and is an American Eagle destination. We are also 2 hours east of DFW & Love Field.
What happens if it rains? I have facilities that will accommodate ;)
What will the weather be like? Warm and sunny! Perfect!
Can I bring more than one instrument? You can, but you'll need to commit to one instrument for the learning portion of the camp. When it comes to jamming, you can play whatever you want!
