Puget Sound Guitar Workshop and Events
PSGW runs three independent, one-week-long Guitar Workshop sessions each year designed for adults ranging from bare-bones beginners to professional musicians and singers. The teachers and classes are different in each session and although there are a number of classes that will always be given (e.g. beginning guitar), each week develops its own character based on that week's unique teachers, classes, and students. A teacher/class list is available on the website.
Accommodations have become quite comfortable over the years. Most of the campers are put up in small cabins with fireplaces and 4 people to a bedroom and bathroom. Bed linens, pillows, pillow cases, blankets, and towels are all provided. There is also space for tenting in both a small quiet area and a larger general tenting area. Pop-ups and RV can park in on site, but there are no hookups available. The cost of accommodations is included in the registration fee.
The PSGW Week in a Nutshell
The first day of camp is set aside for meeting other campers and finding out about the classes being offered during the week. The next five days have classes in the morning and early afternoon, workshops in the late afternoon, and special events in the evening. The last day of camp is devoted to packing up and saying goodbyes.
In addition to the scheduled events, every day has opportunities for jamming, swimming, or just playing hooky and sleeping. Each day's events are listed on large posters in the lodge, so you needn't memorize the schedule.
The Puget Sound Guitar Workshop (i.e. PSGW, the camp) is run by two year-round Coordinators under the aegis of the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop (i.e. PSGW, the 501C3 non-profit organization).
The current year-round "out of sight" Coordinators are Janet Peterson and Peter Langstonor, Janet@psgw.org, or Peter@psgw.org.
