Pete Wernick is the originator of banjo camps, offering them in Colorado starting in 1984.
After over 100 camps in 30 years, and a 5-year break, Pete will return with a full week of bluegrass banjo instruction at this beautiful location in the Colorado mountains.
“My camps are about fun, but also about real results. Having played and taught banjo most of my life, I still love to help players learn, from the first slow jam to the highest levels of artistry and performance. I hope you can join me in Colorado this August.”
Rocky Mountain Fiddle Camp has been running since 1999 and provides an ideal setting for banjo players to mix with fiddles and other instruments!
