The California Bluegrass Association presents...

Summer Music Camp

June 9th-12th 2024


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
You may also register by email. Download a printable pdf version of the Registration Form

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

Mail-in Registration Priority
Mail-in registration is first-come, first-served based on the postmark date, with preference given to CBA members. We strongly recommend registering online for our popular classes.

Cancellations received before June 1st will receive a refund, minus a $50 administrative fee.

“No-shows” (those who, without warning, fail to show up at camp by Monday morning), receive no refund and forfeit their spot.
If you register with full fees and unexpected circumstances force you to cancel, please email us as soon as possible.

Sleep-In option
This option is for those who do not wish to take a morning intensive class and wish to attend afternoon electives, jams, and other activities.


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 CBA Summer Music Camp makes a fun and educational Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, birthday, New Year, or whatever, gift.
