WUMB will host Winter Acoustic Music Weekend (WAMW) on February 25 – 27, 2022, in Groton, Massachusetts. This will be a ‘hands-on’ New England acoustic music retreat. Come for camaraderie and classes, concerts and great guided and freestyle jams with these first class players and teachers:
Groton is about an hour northwest of downtown Boston. The camp is in a beautifully wooded area, and facilities are comfortable. Rooms are doubles, with private or shared bathrooms. The food is hearty, and the desserts are legendary. Walking between buildings is on fairly level ground, give or take possible snow banks! Oh – and there are several working fireplaces. Space is limited, and we encourage you to sign up early!
Registration opens at 4:00pm on Friday afternoon.
Dinner is at 6:00pm.
Alcohol is not allowed at the Winter Weekend.
Depart the campus on Sunday by 3:00pm.
*Cost includes meals, lodging and classes.
**Cost includes meals and classes.
A $300 deposit at the time of registration reserves your spot.
Final payments are due no later than January 7, 2022
Proof of vaccination at check-in will be required for all participants of the WUMB Winter Acoustic Music Weekend.
There is currently no mask mandate in place for the Town of Groton; therefore Grotonwood Conference Center does not require masks on the property. This protocol is subject to change if the Massachusetts Department of Public Health or the local Board of Health issues further guidelines.
Weather and Environment:
Prepare for winter weather, so bring lots of layers and sturdy shoes or boots! But all of the cabins have heat and hot water, so you’ll be plenty cozy inside. The camp is located in the beautiful Groton forest by a lake, so be ready to get outdoorsy. The ground can be uneven and, if it snows, pretty slippery so be careful of your surroundings.
