The 2018 Bluegrass Camp will again be at the Unitarian Fellowship Hall at 4448 Pike's Landing Road, across from the Princess Hotel. As you're driving toward the Fairbanks airport, you'll see an odd looking building with an airplane sticking out of the roof on the right. Turn right just after that at Pike's Restaurant, then immediately turn right again on the access road that goes past the airplane. Go about 2 tenths of a mile and turn left (towards the Chena River) on Pike's Landing Road. You'll see Princess Hotel on the left and the Unitarian Church driveway on the right.
Please arrive between at 9:30am, Monday, June 25th. Be sure to provide your child's lunch for the day. We will have snacks. Look for the big welcoming red door, which is where we'll have the registration tables set up. You'll get your packet with individual class schedules and song books at that time.

Bring potluck food items. We will provide basic condiments, plates, silverware, cups, etc. This activity is optional, (not part of the regular camp classes and activities), but lots of fun and a great way to introduce your kids to square dancing. Our dance band "Hog Heaven Stringband” will be playing some hot old time Appalachian style square dance music (the "roots" of Bluegrass Music) with caller TBA. No previous experience is required.
Camp Concert The end of camp concert will be held at 3:30 on the last day of camp (June 29th). This is an opportunity for you to play the song you have rehearsed with your band, and show your parents and friends what you have learned during the camp.
