New location for 2018! With the closure of our long-time Teen Camp home near Big Basin, we've been searching for a new venue. Mt. Madonna school, located near the top of Highway 152, will be our site for 2018.  

Redwood Teen Camp is for players of fiddle, flute, pennywhistle, recorder, oboe, harp, guitar, mandolin, dulcimer, accordion, keyboards, percussion, Irish tenor banjo, and cello. Other activities include dancing, singing, crafts, campfire, and bamboo flute making.  

Participants must be proficient on one of the above instruments and have played for at least two years. For more information on the camps and playing ability requirements, please email Shelley.

Day Program 

Ages 12-17

9:00 am- 6:00 pm Monday-Thursday
9:00 am - 9:30 pm Friday

This program is intended for students too old for kid camp, but not quite ready for the overnight program, or for students who have evening commitments. Students will participate in all musical activities, including cabin bands and the final concert, as well as fun afternoon activities, such as crafts, swimming, and flute-making. Students will spend Friday evening at camp (until 9:30 p.m.)-- the night of the Ceilidh! Program includes lunch. 

Overnight Program

Ages 12-18
Spend all day playing music in the redwoods, and have a great time playing your instrument, singing, dancing, sessioning and improv-ing every night! Program includes all meals and boarding. Bring bedding, clothes (including swimsuit and jacket), towel, toiletries, bug repellant, sunscreen, your instrument, and music stand. Costumes may be useful, as well as other fun things for the ceilidh/talent show.
