This camp is designed for adult players of all levels. Young folks able to sustain an adult level of participation are welcome (parent or guardian required for those under 18). There is a discounted option for non-musical spouses, partners, and parents to join the fun.

Summer Wheat is a week of small classes that are honestly almost like private lessons for music makers on all levels. I left camp with enough tunes to join jams at the Wheatland festival. The community at this camp feels so welcoming and is in the spirit of what Wheatland is all about.
