The focus of Fiddleheads Acoustic Jam Camp is to teach and inspire musicians to play with each other in various styles - both singing and instrumental - and to experience playing in a band setting. Held each year in September, Jam Camp features hours of jams, workshops and concerts throughout the weekend. Campers form bands of various styles, work up and arrange a song together, and perform in an energy-filled Saturday evening concert. Jam Camp offers guided jams with focus on jamming essentials and techniques - hearing chords, backup, playing in different styles, soloing and having fun! Coaches and Campers jam in various styles Friday and Saturday evenings and often continue into the late night. From blues to bluegrass, jigs to jazz, cajun to country and more! We hire top-notch coaches who are not only amazing musicians but who are also great teachers! Coach Info
What’s not to love about Fiddleheads Jam Camp? The location is gorgeous, the instructors are invested, and the students come ready to put their all into the classes. The variety of interesting workshops makes it hard to choose, and the focus on jamming in the after-hours is prime for making memories and new friends. The community was supportive and creative, and I certainly felt fortunate to be a part of it!

“I had the best time at Fiddleheads Acoustic Jam Camp! The location is way off the beaten path, which allowed for a total focus on the music. The best thing was that the focus was on the students and not the teachers, everybody got to jam and perform. Ellen and Melissa were relaxed but totally on top of all the details and the food was definitely above average! I highly recommend this wonderful weekend!”
