4th Cat Nap Music Camp
Monday, July 3 – Thursday, July 6
We’re excited to announce the launch of our 4th Cat Nap Music Camp. The camp has been extended by an extra day this year and we’ll be joined by two-time BC fiddle champion Michael Burnyeat!
Pack your instruments and swimsuit for 4 days of musical fun and outdoor activities with friends and family! We’ll have music and tune workshops run by Rosie and the Michaels as well as open workshops where Cat Nappers can teach their favourite tune and daily trad sessions. Our Cat Nap Ceilidh was a big hit last year and camp will wrap up with a Cat Nap Camp Concert Thursday afternoon!
Cat Nap Music Camp is located at picturesque Camp Latona. The camp is located at the north end of Gambier Island in the scenic Howe Sound.
Return boat transportation is provided from Porteau Cove on the Sea to Sky Hwy, including Free parking!
