The camp features all the classic bluegrass instruments: banjo, mandolin, fiddle, guitar and bass, as well as Dobro and clawhammer banjo to round out the idiom.

- John Showman - Fiddle
- Chris Coole - Clawhammer Banjo
- Max Heineman - Stand Up Bass
- Frank Evans - Bluegrass Banjo
- Adam Shier - Flatpick Guitar
- Ivan Rosenberg - Dobro and Clawhammer Banjo
The camp fee includes basic camping, three delicious home-made meals a day (plus snacks), daily classes on your chosen instrument with a master musician/instructor, band labs where you'll learn to play as a group, concerts by your instructors on the school's stage, interactive workshops, private lesson, fun evening social activities, bon fire jams and all amenities.
Love bluegrass but hate camping? There are many options for RV camping, inns, B&Bs and hotels close by, all listed on the website. The camp is the brainchild of Juno award winning musician Jenny Whiteley along with her good friend Alysa Hawkins who is the owner/operator/resident of the Old School and South in Milford Inn.
