Special Events

Several times during the year, Songmakers enjoy weekend campouts, retreats and other special events that provide extended opportunities to share music and socialize in beautiful natural settings. Some are official Songmaker events and others we just participate in.

Aug 30 – Sept 3, 2018
Labor Day Campout. Please sign up soon for Labor Day weekend, and the Fall Out camp out October 11-14. We would most like to see sites 29-32 reserved as these are near the traditional potluck area. Sites 32 and 31 have already been reserved for these dates. We used to leave 29 open to provide balcony seating for the concert, but now it would be good for someone to reserve it. It would also be good to reserve the RV sites 17 or 18 to 26 so we have all those along the creek. There is a map and there are instructions for making reservation at the Ventura Count Parks Reservation site. When you do reserve, please post on the Kenney Grove Campout Discussion page at Kenny Grove Campout Discussions or email: campouts@songmakers.org. You may email this address for the discussion page password. Remember, if you want to arrive a day early or stay a day later to pack up, you can do that.
