      It would appear the camp is already sold out according to the Dreamcatcher Events (the event organizer) web site which has clearly listed it as such, though the web site front page for the camp does not reflect it so far. However, registration appears to show WAITLIST AVAILABILITY only.

      I have a call in to the organizer who we spoke to on Friday to confirm. Glen Cove Mansion has 185 rooms and some of would go to faculty.

      I would have gone in a heartbeat if I didn’t already have two other week long vacations planned this year. What an amazing group of musicians!
