Half Camp

Not everyone can get away for the entirety of Django Camp, so we do our best to offer the option of attending either the first or second half of the week, as follows:


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 artists on our staff.


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 registered for the first half of Django Camp and you want to attend one of the all-day workshops on Tuesday you may do so at the same cost as everyone else.
  • If you want housing, but only for 2 nights, that’s fine. (Just let us know on the registration form)
  • If you want dinner the evening of your arrival and breakfast the morning of your departure, you can add another day of meals. 
  • If you want to attend another full day of camp, you can do so for an additional tuition cost of $150, plus any additional meals or housing. (See below.)
  • An additional full day of meals is $55.
  • An additional night of housing is $55.


These Variations Won’t Work:

  • 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 per meal and complicated. We suggest you eat in town if you don’t want the full meal plan.)


Our Half-Camp Cancellation Policy

Given how close we are to the event, we cannot offer any refunds on food or housing costs should you need to cancel. (These will already have been committed to Smith College.) As for tuition, we will do our best to offer up to a 50%  refund of tuition should you need to cancel owing to illness or emergency. This is not a guarantee, but it has usually been possible in the past.
