About the Event
About Winter Retreat: CCMC’s Annual Winter Retreat & Reunion is a fun way to bring a little camp spirit back into your life in the midst of winter. This is a great opportunity introduce your friends and family to the extended CCMC community. The retreat is open to all CCMC alumni, and alumni are welcome to bring one guest of any age. We hope to see you there, rain or shine!

Covid Protocols: In the interest of keeping everyone as safe as possible, CCMC requires all attendees be vaccinated, and take an at-home test within 24 hours of the event. When you arrive at the retreat you must show proof of both (take photos with your phone).
You will be asked to attest to following all protocols on the registration form. If you are not feeling well, please do not come even if you do test negative. Let firstname.lastname@example.org know as soon as possible.
We are hosting fewer people than usual to create more space, but there is an inherent risk in attending any gathering these days. We are offering a limited number of single occupancy rooms at a premium price, but most attendees will have a roommate or two. Wearing a mask indoors is encouraged.
When: February 24–26, from Friday 4 p.m. (dinner is served at 6:30 p.m.) through Sunday 2:30 p.m. Please do not arrive before 4 p.m. on Friday.
Where: In the beautiful Santa Cruz mountains, at a retreat facility with plenty of places to play music in large and small groups, hiking trails and other recreational facilities. Winter Retreat takes place rain or shine!
What happens there: No structured activities are planned. We do have our traditions, however. There’s usually a singer/songwriter’s circle, there’s often a Beatles jam with songbooks available, bluegrass jams, ukulele circles, gospel revival, slow (and fast) swing jams, and hot Django. The weekend will be yours to socialize, sing, dance, play, whatever!
Lodging: Overnight lodging is pre-assigned. Depending on availability, you can request a co-ed, women-only, men-only, or a quiet-at-night room. Limited space for small RVs (<25 ft) may be available at the same cost as other lodging. Email email@example.com for RV questions. There are a limited number of single-occupancy rooms offered at a premium price. If these are sold out, indicate on your regstation form if you would like to upgrade if a spot opens up, and we will place you on a waiting list.
Meals/Food: Your full weekend price includes six meals: Friday dinner, three meals on Saturday, and Sunday breakfast and lunch. If you have dietary restrictions or specific food allergies, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Diet Special” in the subject line.
Saturday-only option: If you can’t make it for the entire weekend, join us for lunch and dinner on Saturday, February 25. Play all afternoon and into the evening (you must leave by midnight). Saturday-only "Daytripper" opportunities are limited.
Cancellations: Registrations are not transferable. If you must cancel after registration, please let email@example.com know ASAP.
