Online Registration
Registering online lets you pay for camp with a credit card. On the registration page you can select any available morning intensive class or sleep-in option. You can also add a meal plan if you like.  Once you register successfully, you will immediately receive a registration confirmation. Classes can fill quickly, so online registration will give you the best chance of getting your first choice.

Mail-in Registration
For mail-in registration contact for details. Mail-in registration is first-come, first-served based on the postmark date, with preference given to CBA members, however we strongly recommend registering online to ensure your place at camp.

Payments and Deposits
Email us if you need to make special payment arrangements.

Currently enrolled college students receive at $50 discount. Before you register, please send a photo of your current college ID to and we will be in touch with confirmation.

JJFC also offers a discount for families, please email for details.


Cancellations received before April 15 will receive a refund less a non-refundable $65 deposit. “No-shows” – those who, without warning, fail to show up at camp by camper checking on Wednesday morning, receive no refund and forfeit their spot, unless prior arrangments have been made.

If you sign up with full fees and unexpected circumstances force you to cancel, please email us as soon as possible.

Special Note
The fee for a bunk in a room in one of Whispering Winds cabins is the same as parking your RV in an assigned site or pitching your tent in the designated tent area. Those who choose to commute to/from camp incur a different fee. There is no fee reduction for those who choose to eat elsewhere.


The scholarship program is made possible through the donations of generous CBA members and other music campers who pay a little extra to help fund it. We are extremely grateful to them!

There are two types of scholarships available, the majority of which are partial scholarships. Full scholarships, which cover full tuition and in some cases also meals and camping are intended for low-income young people who are devoted to playing bluegrass and/or Old-time music.

Scholarship recipients – or their parents – are requested to help out at camp with a camp chore or two (there are many to choose from!).

Email us to apply or for more info.


A registration for the Julian Familiy Fiddle Camp makes a fun and educational Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, birthday, New Year, or whatever, gift.
