• VFMS Autumn Folk Retreat: Nov. 08–10, 2019

Friday, November 8th, to Sunday, November 10th, 2019

The Victoria Folk Music Society returns to Camp Pringle on the peaceful shores of Shawnigan Lake
for a cozy Autumn Retreat. The days and evenings will be filled with jamming, song circles, and conversation. It will be a relaxing, informal weekend with friends both old and new, sharing music, stories, and good food.

The Retreat begins Friday at 5:00 pm. (please don’t arrive earlier due to daycare activities at Camp Pringle). The Retreat ends Sunday at 2:00 pm following lunch and cleanup.

The Retreat is open to EVERYONE, not just VFMS members so if you like to sing, play an instrument, or just listen, please plan to join us for this fun musical weekend.

COST: $165 each (Earlybird) or $185 each (Regular);
REGISTRATION DEADLINES: Earlybird Sep. 30, 2019;
Regular Oct. 28, 2019.

Some key items to know about the Retreat:
There will be workshops to stretch your musical skills and repertoire. You can volunteer to lead a workshop, or moderate a jam session or song circle (Please indicate on your Registration form if you’d like to be a leader/moderator and we’ll contact you). There will also be a concert that you can participate in on Saturday night.

Accommodations are various sized shared rooms in heated lodges with shared bathrooms and hot showers. The bunks come equipped with a foam mattress, but you will need to bring your own bedding, towels, and personal necessities. Spaces are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis when you register.

Good meals will be provided by the camp chef from Friday dinner to Sunday lunch. A choice of omnivorous or vegetarian meals is included in the Registration fee. The chef can also provide dairy-free or gluten-free meals but there will be additional daily fees for these. No other dietary accommodations are available. You may also bring food/snacks for yourself and to share at the Saturday night concert, but Camp Pringle requires that there be no nuts in any of these. If you have multiple food concerns, you may want to bring some provisions; there are kitchen facilities available in Branter Lodge for self-prepared meals.
