Join us for a fun mini retreat in 18 acres of natural beauty at the URSA Retreat Centre, just north of Cochrane. Blissfully set in the wilderness beside the mountains, spend time in nature, relaxing and unwinding with other likeminded music enthusiasts.

Spend the evening under the stars around the warm campfire enjoying smores and songs amongst new friends and familiar faces. Take time to unplug and enjoy making music, learning new tricks to impress your friends and family and most importantly take home the skills to sing songs that are sure fire wins for any singalong!

You will explore which songs work best for you, your voice and a campfire audience and leave being able to share them with confidence. 

We will also look at simple vocal harmonies that will wow your camping companions! ​

The workshops will get you playing or singing classic campfire songs with the option to simply bring your voice or play a guitar (or any other instruments you can fit around a fire!) We will spend the evening around the campfire to practice your new skills. You'll leave ready to rock any event this summer and for years to come! 

​Eliminate that moment of fear when asked to sing in public and turn it into pure joy with the ability to share your music and bring even more fun to any special event!

ALL experience levels are welcome, no singing or guitar playing experience is required to attend, and we encourage beginners to join this fun weekend retreat to test out their skills in an encouraging and relaxed setting.
