SUMMER INSTRUCTIONAL CAMP
June 3–5, 2022
Closed for 2022
No matter what your style or ability, this summer weekend will elevate your playing more than you ever thought possible in three days. This camp is the cornerstone of our 25+ year history, offering amazing instructors, time to perform, jam, and socialize with friendly people who share a love of music.
A Magic Location. A Historic Vibe.
At the heart of the camp is Alexandra Hall, a wide-open jam space that also hosts the amazing Saturday Night Concert.
The Crescent Beach ocean path is half a block away providing a beautiful natural space for reflection and exercise.
Georgia Strait Music Camps are a full weekend immersion into music, held at historic Camp Alexandra in the beautiful, ocean-side setting of Crescent Beach, BC. This historic seaside town provides the perfect setting for musical inspiration and natural relaxation. Accommodations are dorm-style, encouraging campers to socialize and meet new friends. Common room facilities provide lots of areas for musical jamming in different styles.
Our food is almost as famous as the music.
Healthy and hearty catered meals are a key ingredient of our music camps. Fresh ingredients are home-cooked with care (including vegetarian options) and served three times Saturday and twice Sunday, with evening snacks. Gluten-free options are available on request as well. A supper of soup and sandwich will also be provided on Friday evening.
We welcome all types of acoustic instruments to our camp and love to meet all types of musicians from beginners to advanced. We are a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive community.
