New Harmony - SFFMC's New Years Camp
Tuesday, December 29, 2015 - Sunday, January 3, 2016
Registration for camp closed December 8. If you missed it, be sure to sign up in September, 2016, to get the early bird discount.
This is an edited thread for recording signups for workshops for the San Francico Folk Music Club's Camp New Harmony. The camp is held every year during the week after Christmas at URJ Camp Newman, on the road between Calistoga and Santa Rosa, north of San Francisco. Some 300 people will be there for 6 days of song and dance and whatnot.
The Camp New Harmony Website is http://sffmc.org/harmony_body.html.
To get an idea what the camp is all about, see the threads for previous years, crosslinked above.
I'm going to use this as an edited thread to record pre-camp signups for workshops. We expect, as usual, that most people will sign up for workshops after they get to camp.
So, the idea is this: if you're attending camp and you'd like to lead a workshop, scroll down and post a message e at the end of this thread with the following information:
- Your name
- Name of the workshop
- Preferred time and day
- Preferred location
I'll enter the information in the charts below. I can't guarantee time and location, but I'll do the best I can to balance things.
For your information:

Camp Map (to be revised)
Note the location (bottom center) of the two new Field Cabins in the area marked "construction area" - they're ready now.
Note that the "lower village" cabins have been demolished. The Health Lodge is closed due to construction, and is scheduled to be demolished if it isn't gone already. The bus route has been adjusted because of the construction.
