Pre-camp videos and worksheets will help you hit the ground running before the camp! Post-camp, you are given free "jazz geek support" until the time of the Jazz Harmony Retreat the following summer!
Texts: All you’ll need to supply is a pencil, staff paper, and solid work ethic. We’ll supply the rest!
Hours: 8am – 9pm each weekday, optional breakfast on the final day (Saturday).
Lodging: There are air-conditioned dorm rooms on campus for the rate of $25 per night, making the entire experience logistically convenient. If you prefer to stay in a motel, please contact us for suggestions. Though renting a car is convenient, we can likely provide a shuttle ride to and from the Des Moines or Omaha airports for a nominal cost of $25 each way. Within the town of Creston, transportation logistics at the retreat are extremely user-friendly, in that the city of Creston is a very small town. If you prefer, we can put you in touch with others who will be landing at your airport and renting a car for the week. There may very well be the opportunity to split the cost of a car rental between two, three, or four others.
Meals: All meals are available at nearby restaurants, or you will have your own full kitchen (with refrigerator, stove/oven, and microwave) in the dorm suites.
