Half Camp

We understand that not everyone can get away for the entirety of Django Camp, so although we can’t make any promises we offer the option of partial attendance to as many people as we can.

We give first priority to people who want to be here for the whole time, so the earliest you can expect the half-camp option to become available will be some time in April. The two broad options are:

First Half Attendance: arrive Tuesday (or even Monday if you wish) and depart Friday morning.

Second Half Attendance:  arrive after 5 on Thursday evening and stay through Sunday morning.

Either of these options includes an evening of jamming followed by two full days of Django Camp, which amounts to roughly half of the event. The biggest difference between the two halves is what you can expect in the evening. Monday through Thursday our evenings are devoted primarily to jamming and socializing. On Friday and Saturday, however, the early part of the evening is devoted to concerts featuring our guest artists.


The cost you see below are estimates of what you can expect in 2019 should we offer the half-camp option. Of the items below, the only one which is not optional is the tuition, which pays for the artists on our staff and other costs of producing the event:

These Variations Will Work (just ask):

  • If you want housing, but only for 2 nights, that’s fine. (We’ll reimburse you for the extra night included in the standard package.)
  • If you want to attend another full day of Camp, you can do so for an additional cost of $150.
  • An additional full day of meals is $50
  • An additional night of housing is $50

These Variations Won’t Work (please don’t ask):

  • Paying less than the half camp tuition. Your arrival time is flexible, but the cost of tuition is fixed.
  • Purchase of partial days of meals. (Very expensive and complicated. We suggest you eat in town if you don’t want the full meal plan.)


Once the half-camp option is open, the process for registration will the same as for anyone else. We’ll ask you to fill in the registration form you’ll find at the bottom of the Registration page. Carolyn will be in touch with you to let you know whether we can accommodate you and, if so, proceed with finalizing your registration.

If you would like to be alerted if/when the half camp option becomes available, just jot Carolyn a note to that effect at djangojune15@gmail.com. We’ll be in touch!
