Pacific Songwriting Camp (formerly SummerSongs)


Pacific Songwriting Camp is a songwriter’s dream for all levels, newcomers to experts, 18 years of age and older.  Whether you want to explore songwriting for the first time or are a seasoned singer/songwriter, immerse yourself in all aspects of the songwriting craft.  Students and instructors make music together and learn together.  The camp includes four days of lodging, all classes and activities, 11 hot, delicious meals (with vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc. options) starting with dinner on Thursday, and ending with breakfast on Monday.  Take workshops and classes that interest you, focus on your musical, lyrical, and performance skills.  Perform at night at “Coffeehouse” in front of a safe and supportive audience, and join in on the late night song circles.  The venue is a beautiful 13 acre retreat center on the California coast.  This camp is inspired by Summer Songs West, an intimate gathering of around 70 participants, which has profoundly touched many lives and has spawned countless songs and friendships.  This camp is inspired by our beloved friend, singer-songwriter, and teacher, Penny Nichols.  Her spirit and legacy continues on with these camps, to create art and community through music and song.
