2007 saw the inaugural “Calvin Vollrath Fiddle Camp” in St. Edouard Alberta. A very small community about 200 kms northeast of Edmonton. Population about 100.
In 2011, for the 5th Annual Camp, the name was changed to ‘Camp Calvin’. The atmosphere was magical & electric. In 2012, the camp was extended to 2 weeks; 2 separate weeks but quite a number of students stayed for both.
Instruction is offered in fiddle, piano & guitar with a variety of workshops held throughout the week, all with high caliber, award winning musicians from across Canada. Students from the age of 8 - 80 take part each year at various levels.
Browse around the site. You'll find pictures, videos, registration forms, a blog, a guest book, a forum & all kinds of things fiddle releated.
The St. Edouard Renewal Centre is a facility owned by the Catholic Diocese and this is the location of the camp.
Welcome to our website and we hope to see you at “Camp Calvin” in the near future.
