All About Camp

CCMC's major focus is our annual summer camps. CCMC runs two independent, week-long sessions each July with beginning, intermediate, and advanced classes for adults in a variety of musical styles.

The price of camp includes all meals. Prices and other details are posted on the Registration page as soon as they become available for the current year, typically in February.


You’ll find answers to many of your questions in the videos about camp. You may also be interested in reading comments from attendees. If you have questions that aren’t answered in the videos or in the FAQ below, please contact us.
