It's a Wrap!
Well the 2018 edition of Camp Calvin is in the books! And what a great year it turned out to be. Having learned much from our first year at Portage College in 2017, many changes and improvements were made that met approval by all attendees. With a cap of 65 students, and the use of only half the college space, camp was much more personable. Coffee breaks, which were included for everyone, were held in the atrium, a much warmer area atmosphere that lent itself better for more camaraderie, sharing and networking among attendees. A new caterer provided us with some tasty and plentiful home cooked meals. Evening concerts were once again... stellar.
We were happy to welcome Mark Sullivan back to the roster this year to compliment our existing roster of Daniel Gervais, Gordon Stobbe, JJ Guy, Kimberley Holmes, Craig McGregor and Calvin Vollrath. Some new workshops were introduced to coincide with the group classes.
We are very pleased with the turnout of this year's camp and thank all those who participated and make it what it is, for without you, we don't have a camp. Plans are underway for 2019 and the website will be updated as information becomes available. Stay tuned and Save the Date! July 21-25, 2019.
Grand North American Old Time Fiddle Championship
You are encouraged to attend the Grand North American Old Time Fiddle Championship on the weekend of July 20-21, 2019 prior to the start of Camp Calvin which is held in Radway AB, a short 1¼ drive northwest of St. Paul. Our schedule accommodates your participation in the fiddle contest without missing anything of Camp Calvin.
ASF Fiddle Marathon
The Alberta Society of Fiddlers (ASF) celebrated their 25th Anniversary with a 25-hr fiddle marathon on May 19 & 20, 2017. Camp Calvin alumni participated in the marathon by playing some favorite Camp Calvin jam tunes. What a fun hour it was!
A 14 min video was taken (along with commentary) of the group and is now posted on the website under Photos, or click here to view it.
