JAMboree 2023 

Spring – May 7th, 8th, 9th, & 10th

   Fall – Sept. 17th, 18th, 19th, & 20th  

Sunday through Wednesday   

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


Thanks to everyone who participated in our Jamborees 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 3 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 our time together…time that we really needed and will continue to need in the days ahead.


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 you share with us is really helpful and appreciated. Thank You!

 RiverTunes 2023?

Many of you have continued to ask if our mothership camp, RiverTunes, will happen this summer. We will not be having RiverTunes this year. Our overhead has skyrocketed in price, ie., lease of the facility and catering (to start with) + Covid unpredictability regarding attendance. Even though the drive would be longer for our camp family to the south, experiencing a JAMboree for a fraction of the RiverTunes cost, will greatly reduce financial risk for us and provide a way more affordable experience for all.


Registration is open. Here at www.rivertunes.net, you will follow the link to fill out a Registration form and then send in your payment. Payment will be handled by Zelle. or a personal check mailed to PO Box 556 Dixon, CA 95620. If we are a week out from camp and your payment has not been made then please contact us so we may make other arrangements for payment to complete your registration. 

The dates are 4 full days; Sun., Mon., Tues., Wed. May 7th, 8th, 9th, & 10th -Sept. 17th, 18th, 19, & 20th  (Thurs. will be a ‘pack and leave at your leisure’ day.)


JAMboree In The Spring 2023 - Info

 Sunday, May  7th through Wednesday, May 10th (go home Thursday, 11th)  


WHAT;  A 4-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 its 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 15 units under 22 feet in length and is reserved on a 1st come, 1st serve basis. Those 10 spaces will go quickly and accompany an additional $100. fee. Register EARLY!!! 

Some Jammers prefer a local Airbnb, or 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 & Wednesday it doesn’t open til 3 pm 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. Afternoons will include more workshops and facilitated jams in different styles. Spontaneous workshops are encouraged. The evening social dinner break will include a different activity each night followed by more jamming by the fire pit and/or any of the campsites spread out in the orchard and around the farm. 

FOODBreakfast – Enjoy it on your own or, if you choose to be part of The Breakfast Potluck, please bring contributions to share each morning; fresh fruits, bread & 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 on-site with home-style dishes 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; $275. 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! 

Cancellation Policy; You may cancel for any reason. If you cancel before midnight on April 15th, we’ll refund all but $25.00 of your payment, or…all but $75.00 if you cancel on or after May 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!
