Gratitude and Reflection

Thanks to everyone who participated in our Summer Jamboree 2022! We here at CampQuarters are so happy that we continue to move carefully and thoughtfully through the pandemic that has made things challenging for us all these last 2 + years. The campout, the workshops, the socializing, and, of course, all the wonderful music made by all of you in the jams that we create… brought love, laughter, and connection during that June weekend that we really needed and will continue to need in the days ahead.

Learning

Like any new venture, there are bumps in the road. We keep working towards making each JAMboree experience better and better. We will strive to continue to put your needs, interests, and desires first. The feedback we’ve received has been really helpful to us. Thank You!

 RiverTunes 2022?

Many of you have continued to ask if our mothership camp, RiverTunes, will happen this summer. With a heavy heart, we have postponed again because of the reluctance of a measurable amount of the RiverTunes Family members to commit yet.  We have reserved our facility at the “Rancho El Chorro Outdoor School” near Morro Bay for 2023. The RECOS Administration understands the difficult decision we’ve had to, once again, make and are enthusiastic for our RiverTunes return.  So meanwhile…

Registration

Registration will open soon. You will receive a “We’re Open!” announcement.  Here at www.rivertunes.net you will follow the link to fill out a Registration form and then make your payment. Payment will be handled the ol’ fashioned “direct” way by 1) personal check, 2) Venmo or 3) “Friends & Family” at PayPal (Friends & Family eliminates fees) and, heck, we’re all friends & family, right? 

The dates are 3 full days; Sun., Mon., Tues., Sept 18th, 19th, & 20th. (Wed. 21st will be a ‘pack and leave at your leisure’ day.)

 

JAMboree In The Fall 2022 - Info

 Sunday, Sept 18th through Tuesday, Sept 20th (go home Wednesday, 21st)  

WHAT;  A 3 day Music JAM campout at Northern California’s premiere “Beer Farm” just outside of the town of Dixon. Folks – from youth to seniors – bring their acoustic string instruments such as guitar, banjo, ukulele, mandolin, fiddle, Dobro and acoustic bass plus accordion and percussion while also enjoying singing and songwriting sessions. 

Ruhstaller is a working farm that grows its own hops, then brews, and pours a wide variety of beers (all available for purchase) on their 40 + acre spread. Our resident free-range chickens, ducks, sheep and goats welcome customers with their well behaved dogs! You read right – responsible dog owners are allowed to bring their dogs to the Hop Farm. 

Overnight accommodations – Most of us tent camp under the shade of the 35-acre walnut orchard, or stay in a vehicle camper.  NOTE; vehicle camping is limited to 10 units under 22 feet in length and are reserved on a 1st come, 1st serve basis. Those 10 spaces will go quickly and accompany an additional $75. fee. Register EARLY!!! 

Some Jammers prefer a local Airbnb, motel or stay with local family/friends. There are three towns within 10 miles of the Farm; Dixon, Davis, and Vacaville. If you’re a local resident, you may elect to be a “Day-Tripper” and go home each evening. 

WHERE; 6686 Sievers Rd. Dixon, CA 95620 (right off I-80 between Dixon & Davis). The Brewery is open to the public during its regular hours and we’ll have plenty of designated areas for Jamming! Fall JAMboree will be our first “Quiet” gathering  in that Sunday is the gentlest weekend day, attendance-wise. Monday is closed to the general public (we’ll have the entire farm to ourselves) and Tuesday doesn’t open til 4pm for a light weekday evening.  

HOW;  A wide variety of workshops will be held each day. Sessions include instruction on the art of jamming and playing well with others, in addition to songwriting, singing, ukulele, guitar, fiddle, mandolin, accordion, harmonica and percussion. Mornings will include coffee, tea and an opt-in potluck breakfast, a morning stretch, vocal wake-up & warm-up into a Morning Choir. Afternoons will include more workshops and facilitated jams in different styles. Spontaneous workshops are encouraged. The evening social dinner break will include a different concert each night followed by more jamming by the fire pit and/or any of the many campsites spread out in the orchard and around the farm. 

FOODThe Breakfast Potluck – will be organized and everyone will bring contributions to share each morning; fresh fruits, breads & pastries, granolas, cold cereals, yogurts, etc,…We will be providing frittatas from Yaya’s kitchen made from our chickens’ fresh eggs!                                                                                                    

Lunch & Dinner -There will be a food truck featuring delicious on-site home-style dishes by families with well kept recipes available for purchase.

BYOF – Of course, you may want to bring food and beverages of your choice from home, as well.

There are flush toilets & drinking water, but no showers.  We think 3 days w/out a shower is doable for most folks. Remember, this is a farm…not a campground.  

COST; $150. per person. If you can pay a little more, it will help bring in some folks who write to us in need of a little financial assistance. Thank You!  Your $150. helps us cover our expenses.       

Cancellation Policy; You may cancel for any reason. If you cancel before midnight Aug. 31st, we’ll refund all but $25.00 of your payment, or…all but $75.00 if you cancel on or after Sept. 1st. Please note we will be JAMmin’ Rain or Shine!

NOTE; SPACE IS LIMITED. Do not wait to register.

Write to us, at rivertunescamp@gmail.com if you’ve any  immediate questions. You may also call 707-678-1351.      

Thank you and bless you and yours in good health.

COVID – We request an honor system negative COVID test from each attendee within 48 hrs. of camp. Let’s all help keep each other safe, provide some peace of mind…  and have a great time!  

We so look forward to playing lots of music and being together again!

Our Fall JAMboree is now open for registration.
