Welcome to Harp Camp Virginia 2020

Welcome to Harp Camp Virginia, 2020, our sixth year. On June 28, 2020, a small group of harpists will gather once again at the Acorn Inn in Faber, VA. Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Nelson County we will gather for 4 days and nights.

What do we have in common? We love to play the harp! We all know there is much to learn, and this is a safe place to explore new ideas and develop our skills. We also love to have fun learning to perform, make friends, enjoy the great outdoors and grow as musicians.

The Acorn Inn, our venue, is fully self-contained with 10 rooms (single or double) two charming comfy living room spaces and an amazing gallery/performance room where our harps remain throughout (no harp-schlepping)! Sleepover campers range from 11 to 18 years of age. Day campers (youth or adult harpists) come from Charlottesville and surrounds or afar and stay at B&B’s close by.

Our days are planned reaching into the arts and humanities as we develop ourselves as harpists. Our presenters are well-known in their fields (music, dance, story-telling, hospice, therapeutic music, sports, animal rescue, etc) and they enthusiastically share their gifts. We gather for workshops, field trips, fun at the lake and daily in ensemble practice or simply playing with and for one another.

Meals are prepared by world-famous French Café, Basic Necessities of Nellysford, VA, and snacks are available all day long.

A highlight of the week is an afternoon at the lake where campers chill, swim, learn to canoe or paddle-board, swing on a tire or play with Harp Camp Mascot, Sampson, the Boxer.
