Annual Winter Alumni Retreat & Reunion

February 24-26, 2017


CCMC’s Annual Winter Alumni Retreat & Reunion is a fun way to bring a little camp spirit back into your life in the midst of winter and a great opportunity to introduce people to the extended CCMC community. The retreat is open to all CCMC alumni, and alumni are welcome to bring guests and children. We hope to see you there, rain or shine!

When: February 24–26, 2017, from Friday 4 p.m. (dinner is served at 6:30 p.m.) through Sunday 4 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. 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.

Who can come: The retreat is open to all CCMC alumni, retreat alumni, and their guests. Enrollment is limited. Because there are no “new camper orientation” events, you should plan to attend with your guests to help them explore the jams and music circles that will abound.

During the registration period, each alum is limited to one adult guest. If space is available, you may bring additional guests.

Children are welcome. Please send an e-mail to if you wish to enroll a child, keeping in mind that there are no planned children’s activities.

Lodging: Overnight lodging is pre-assigned. When you register, indicate whether you prefer a co-ed, women-only, men-only, or a quiet-at-night room.

If you want to bunk with someone specifically, list their names under “Other camper names” on your registration form, or send an e-mail to Note that we may not be able to accommodate all requests.

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 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. Play all afternoon and into the evening (you must leave by midnight). Saturday-only opportunities are limited.
