We are planning our third summer retreat and this summer we are heading up to Julian, CA at Camp Cedar Glen once again. This spacious spot in the woods and mountain air is easily accessible, disability friendly, and so comfortable. If you know you want to attend, please sign up ASAP so we can reach our minimum number of teachers to fulfill the basic quota for reserving our cabins. Coming to the retreat gives you time to unwind, bond with friends, deepen your musical knowledge, expand your skills and double your confidence as a song leader! This three-day GITC experience will help you accomplish your musical goals while you renew your spirit among friends in a beautiful place and all for a tiny price! Your costs for food and lodging are below. Located only two miles away from Julian Town Hall, Camp Cedar Glen offers a relaxed and social atmosphere where families and visitors all find welcome and a variety of affordable accommodations and amenities.
Retreat Dates: August 2 – 5, 2018
Arrival August 2nd - Thursday - dinner (arrival at 4 PM)
August 3rd - breakfast, lunch and dinner
August 4th - breakfast, lunch and dinner
Departure August 5th - Sunday - breakfast & lunch (departure at 2 PM)
The three days will include workshop style classes in guitar, ukulele, voice, songwriting, lesson planning for music/ELA and music/English Learners, music leadership skills, banjo lessons and drum making class with Eli Turner. GITC faculty members and artists will lead the workshops.
The cost for the weekend is set and listed below. No matter what, you will eat well and sleep in comfort without paying hotel prices. We are suggesting each teacher make a tax-deductible gift to GITC of $75 for all musical and educational services provided for you from Thursday night through Sunday afternoon. Pitching in whatever you can will make this workable. Everyone’s attendance is welcome regardless of what they can contribute.
We know this is unbelievable—the numbers look too good to be true, but they are accurate. All numbers you see here are totals. They include your lodging for 3 days and 9 meals! We will be staying in Wyatt Village, which includes the Williamson and Robinson Cabins. The rooms have bunk beds and there are generally 4-8 beds per room. Each cabin has a central meeting room perfect for a cozy jam or late night chat.
3 Nights & 9 Meals - $200 per person, and yes we are pro-rating things for specific days. You will find those details in the registration survey, HERE.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included in the total cost for the weekend. The kitchen will accommodate meals for us according to our needs including adapting for vegan and vegetarian preferences, and food allergies.
30 Teachers Make a Green Light
We are currently planning the workshop schedule based on the number of teachers who respond, as well as your musical goals and desires. Once we make our minimum registration, we can create a calendar of specific workshops to fit the requests of those of you who have signed up. 30 is the magic number.
