Colorado Roots Music Camp
Join Colorado Roots Music Camp in the summer for a week of bluegrass, folk, blues, swing, jazz, Irish, flatpicked and fingerstyle guitar, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, bass, singing, learning, and fun!
Break out of your routine and be inspired by a variety of styles, first-rate musicians, and the incredible experience of being immersed in acoustic music. The instructors are some of the top players in the nation, chosen because they are known by peers and students as great instructors for all levels. Class sizes are small, with an average 10:1 student-teacher ratio, so you will be sure to get plenty of individual attention.
There are classes, concerts, master classes, seminars, and jamming! From over 30 hands-on classes offered over a broad range of levels, instruments, styles, and subjects, you select those that appeal to you. There will also be concerts by instructors and campers, master classes for up-close individualized learning, seminars on interesting and fun topics, and jamming! And, if you are new to jamming, there are courses specifically designed to get you started.
Whether you are just starting out or an advanced player, there are over 35 classes to inspire, inform, and challenge. Each instructor teaches a variety of levels and brings a wealth of fundamentals, technique, and style to each class.
All ages are welcome! Campers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. You are welcome to attend the camp as a companion of a camper, at a reduced rate. While you will not attend classes, instructor one-on-ones, jams or seminars, you are welcome to attend all concerts, meals, and stay in the camp lodging. The camp itself is a beautiful retreat, and there are also many great things to see and do close by.
Camps take place at the Rocky Mountain Mennonite Camp high in the mountains near Divide, Colorado, surrounded by spruce, pine, and aspen forest as well as beautiful rock formations and premier hiking trails.
If you are new or old, if you need challenge or something new, if you are on a plateau and need inspiration or if you just want to peg your fun meter, the Colorado Roots Music Camp is for you.
