    Camp Vision

    The concept behind the camp is to create a supportive "envelope" for learning and playing acoustic music in the beauty of nature where some of the best kind of music is made and from which we can draw inspiration. The immersion concept allows participants to fully focus, have access to our instructors for a deeper experience, and to share this knowledge with your fellow participants for a tribal/family experience. Our desire is that you will come away from the camp with a new set of musical skills, and a deeper sense of love, joy and appreciation for making music.

      Note: the organizer has stated this is not a virtual camp at the moment but speculated anything is possible. There are a number of camps dipping their toe in the water in this fashion at the moment.
