    We were blown away with the power of the drum, the gentleness of the flute and one's spiritual connection with the elements in this weekend in the sweet meadows and woods of northern Wisconsin. If you EVER get a chance to learn with Chris Berry, it's an opportunity NOT to be missed.

    Hi Cathy, the camping option breaks down as follows, as we accommodate anyone who asks:
    Teachers: $125
    Food: $30
    Camping 2 nights: $70
    The camping fee is set by the retreat center to support the use of its facilities. The event is set up to support community, give the most time one can have with the teachers, and have great, healthy food prepared for us that we share together in community. The camping is two restful areas to put up our tents and sleep; it's not a campground set up to have individual cooking fires/stoves. One could cook their own food near the barn, but not at their private campsite (fire hazard).

    Both teachers are top notch and greatly reduced their normal fee for this particular weekend since it's our first time planning this sort of event. Sorry you can't make it this time.

    If folks from Madison want to come to would be great to carpool let us know who's wanting to go and who needs rides!
