    Alan Bibey Mandolin Camp 2018

    Surfside Beach S.C. — Mandolinists will gather here August 22-24, 2018 when the Annual Alan Bibey Mandolin Camp at Ocean Lakes Campground is held in conjunction with the Ocean Lakes Bluegrass Festival.

    Lodging for the Camp is good through the weekend so you can stay for the festival and see Alan Bibey & Grasstowne, Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, IIIrd Tyme Out, Balsam Range and many more.

    Instructors include Alan Bibey, Don Stiernberg and Emory Lester. Master Luthier Jonathan McClanahan will be in attendance and mandolinist Ralph McGee will lead slow jams as well as other instruction.


    Camp registration is $500 which includes:

    • Four nights, Aug. 22 - 25 (Aug. 26 checkout) at a 5-Star Beach Resort
    • Discount on Bluegrass Festival Tickets
    • Golf cart rentals - 1/2 price
    • Free parking
    • Free access to water park and pools
    • Four instructors, professional, state-of-the-art mandolin instruction
    • Take home booklet
    • Free Alan Bibey Mandolin Camp concert

    Ocean Lakes Campground is close to many attractions the Grand Strand has to offer including shopping, amusement parks, and the campground is located on the beach! These are just some of the many things a guest may choose to do (if you choose to bring one) while you're in class or jamming.

    Guests can be included for an additional fee of $200.

      Gonna be a heck of a good time again! Can't wait for round 3.

      Btw, don't let the "campground" in the name fool you, the lodging is in very nice houses just a short walk from the beach!

      Aw yeah, it's almost AB Camp time! Most exciting event all year and a camp that should be on everyone's radar. Just look at that instructor list! Get your brain and fingers ready for some serious jamming.

      I'm digging this year's logo. Very appropriately beachy. And that "The Bibey" headstock...Hmmm.
