A few reminders to help us all have a wonderful time at camp:

  1. Our forest was been thinned and mostly cleared of underbrush 10 years ago, but there are more dead trees because of the drought. No fires are allowed anywhere this year, even in the campground. Smoking is allowed only at the campfire circle. No smoking is allowed in the cabins, or anywhere else in camp.
  2. Jamming is encouraged throughout the week. Please try to be inclusive wherever possible in your jams. After midnight, please play softly if you are by the campfire, and stop playing outside in the cabin and campfire area entirely by 1 a.m. Jamming is permissible all night long in front of the mess hall, in Cabin 1, inside your cabin or in Cello Camp, but remember to be thoughtful of those who are trying to sleep nearby. Stay in the camp area after dark. Do not go on foot past the mess hall area at night.
  3. Please wear your badge. The road through camp is public, and occasionally we will have people walking through from the campground. We need to be able to identify our own campers.
  4. You MUST present your meal ticket at meals.
  5. Have a great time, and drink lots of water!

Notes:

  1. “From scratch” means you have never played before, or very little. They will be cumulative for the three days of camp, but you can still join anytime. .
  2. Other “beginner” classes mean you have played a year or so.
  3. John Hammond’s Acorn classes will focus on the native Kawaiisu culture, and everyone is invited to join in.
