What's New?

Good Ol' Persons Reunion Band!

OK, maybe they were cuter back then, but they're better teachers now! and still the director's absolute favorite bluegrass band. Very happy to have them all on staff! Left to right in the more current photo above: Bethany Raine, Paul Shelasky, Kathy Kallick, John Reischman, Sally van Meter. Special welcome to Bethany, coming for the first time. 

Other returning teachers are: Chris Stuart, Janet Beazley, Keith Little, Luke Abbott, Annie Staninec, John Kael, and Cary Black--all Walker Creek faves we're pleased to have back.

Also coming for the first time! Roy Andrade, Thomas Sneed, Betse Ellis, Nina Gerber, and Raul Reynoso.

Rebecca Stout will teach flatfoot dance; Clarke Wyatt and many of our fantastic TA's will be teaching elective classes.


Get your WCMC T-shirt When You Register!

We’re going back to basics for this year’s T-shirt, just our beautiful logo, plain and simple. All sizes available, including kids small sizes, which we haven’t been able to offer with other recent designs. T’s are available in red or white unisex, or the popular ladies style turquoise. If you order a white shirt, you can take it to the Paint Your T-shirt activity at camp and color it yourself. ORDER YOUR SHIRT WHEN YOU REGISTER to be sure to get the size and style you want.

A new lodging option!

We're partnering with the nearby Marconi Conference Center to offer rooms at a deep discount for those who would like to stay off campus but nearby, on the shores of beautiful Tomales Bay. For couples, the price is about the same as staying on site; for singles it's higher. This will also serve as overflow lodging when we sell out of rooms on site. And it's a good option for those who want their own private bathroom, rather than the shared "bathrooms down the hall" situation at camp.
Says one of our campers who stayed there during our last spring camp: 

"If you are looking for something more private and quiet, the Marconi Conference Center offers a discounted rate for Walker Creek Campers.  The Marconi Conference Center is in a park-like setting in the town of Marshall and is of interest to nature and history buffs.    In  the early 1900’s this was the site of the transpacific telegraph station.  It has also been a railroad station hotel (when Highway One was a railroad track).  The wireless is good and the rooms are updated, clean, quiet and comfortable.  Marconi is about 8 miles west of camp on Highway One overlooking Tomales Bay.  Allow about 20 minutes driving time, and a little more time to park and get settled in.  You may not make the 7:30 AM yoga class or the 10:30 PM jams, but you will get beautiful views of the best of the Marin countryside."


We try to keep the camp as affordable as possible, and with that in mind tuition has remained solid at $300 ever since the inception of the camp in 2013. But at this point, in order to keep up with the times and rising expenses, we are implementing an increase of $25 to the price of tuition. We hope this will not be a deal breaker for anyone, but if it does push you over the limit of affordability, please remember that, as always, scholarships and work trades are available to anyone who needs them, just ask.

New address for mailing in checks:
