Come and join us for our Spring Jam and Fall Jam gatherings. If a Friday evening to Sunday afternoon weekend of great food, nice folks, do-it-yourself workshops, singing, jamming and a super concert sounds like a good time to you - please join us! The camp is located in a beautiful, ocean side setting in Crescent Beach, BC. 

Unlike our Summer Camp, there are no formal seminars provided at the Spring Jam or Fall Jam so the cost for the weekend is lower (but we do have informal workshops). You still get the same great food and congenial atmosphere with lots of time for jamming, singing, socializing and walks on the beach. And on Saturday evening we organize the highlight of the weekend -- our camp concert with opportunities for all who wish to perform. 


The cost for the weekend is CDN$220. The price covers six gourmet meals - including Friday night dinner, basic dorm-style accommodation, snacks, coffee, tea, etc. Please send a cheque or money order made out in full to The Georgia Strait Guitar Workshop at the address on the registration form. These retreats fill up quickly so don't delay in sending in your application; places are filled according to the postmarked date on your letter.

Note: GSGW Summer Camp instructors are offered a special rate of CDN$110 for the weekend.

Cancellation policy: A $25 cancellation fee is charged on all cancellations. Fees paid will be retained to be used as credits for future events with the understanding that the extent of the credit given on cancellations received within 14 days of any event will be at the discretion of the organizers.


A variety of dormitory-style accommodations are available along with common room facilities for eating,  jamming and socializing. There are no single rooms or rooms for couples. This is an adult camp; students under 19 years should contact us before registering.


Healthy and hearty catered meals with vegetarian options are served three times Saturday and twice Sunday, with evening snacks. A supper of soup and sandwich will be provided on Friday evening.


Your own bedding and pillow, towel, rain gear, warm clothing, instruments, music, voice, lyrics, a flash light, ear plugs, your well rested body (we mean it!) and creative ideas.


No drugs or pets; smoking outdoors only, away from groups and high traffic areas. The Georgia Strait Guitar Workshop takes no responsibility for the safety of participants, their personal effects, instruments or vehicles. This is a closed camp for security and safety reasons. No visitors please.
