Steve Kaufman's Acoustic Kamp

The Big 25th Annual "Best Acoustic Kamp" In The World

June 13-19, 2021 for Old Time and Traditional Week
June 20-26, 2021 for Bluegrass Week.

Donna and I and all of the Kamp Staff want you to know your safety and well being are our primary concerns during this period of Covid. We are in contact with the college for any changes that may occur to our current situation. Other music camps have begun to postpone for yet another year to 2022. If that happens to us, all of your current funds will simply move over to the new dates of June 12-18, 2022 for Traditional Week and June 19-25, 2022 for Bluegrass Week.

Bottom line as far as registering for Kamp, if you register now we will have hopes to see you in June. And if things get postponed again, we will move your registration to 2022. You will have plenty of time to change instruments, levels and other items you will have chosen for 2021.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at

We had our first meeting with Maryville College about their Covid Response. It was very encouraging.

Some of the Out of USA Instructors have postponed teaching Kamp until 2022 which is understandable. They would have to quarantine upon returning home for 14 days. A few other changes have occurred and will all be spelled out. Mainly Kamp will be smaller with less students in the classrooms. Fifteen will be the largest class.

Anyway, we are working on it 23/7 (gotta practice sometime). Check back soon for the Covid Update.

Feel free to register for Kamp. Make a deposit to hold your spot. If kamp is postponed, all of your funds are moved to 2022 automatically.

Our primary goal is the safety and health of all our Kamp students, staff, our community and the College staff. For those students who do not comply, you will be asked to leave Kamp and the College with no refund.

We WILL have a Safe Kamp in 2021!

Download Full Color Brochure Soon. Some changes to be made.

Stay well and we Hope to See you in June
