Join us Sunday July 18th Thursday July 22nd 2021 for a 5-day musical celebration at the Ossipee Valley String Camp!

You will receive instruction from world class musicians, incredible locally sourced meals, workshops and elective classes, midnight jams and morning yoga, swimming, hiking opportunities, an incredible site and a fantastic musical community.

The camp will be held at the majestic Ossipee Valley fairgrounds in Hiram, Maine, which features beautiful pine shaded campsites combined with grassy knolls, old barns, and plenty of RV hookups for those traveling on the road!

Currently classes will be held for fiddle & cello, ukulele, guitar, mandolin, banjo, upright bass, singing and songwriting! Classes will be held for all levels, and all ages. Whether you are just beginning your journey, or you are a seasoned professional, this multi-generational camp will have something to offer you.

**Note: we do ask that all students have a minimum knowledge of basic tuning, a major and minor scale pattern, and a persistent interest in improving their skills. If you know someone, especially a child, who may be interested in learning to play, but is not sure, check out the festival workshops and the Roots & Sprouts Free Academy at the music festival as a first step.
