August 2022 Camp … CANCELLED!

May 23, 2022

Dear FAMI Community,

First off thank you to everyone who attended the May camp over the weekend – our first in-person event since Jam camp 2019.  By all accounts everyone enjoyed the experience.

On a sadder note, and to answer the question on everyone’s mind … What is happening with the August camp?  During the May camp, the Board was forced to make the difficult decision to cancel August camp this year. We have been unable to secure a facility which meets our needs and so we decided it was best to make the decision now and focus on delivering a successful jam camp for October.

Given that suitable facilities tend to be more likely to be available once kids are back in school, we are optimistic that we’ll be able to make this happen. Please keep an eye on your email, our facebook page and this websitefor updates.

Thank you for all your support.

Dear FAMI Community,

We are writing to share FAMI’s situation regarding August camp. As you may know, registrations for August camp would have normally already commenced by this time of the year. 

 But speaking of the best laid plans, we learned in April that our plan for the location of our August camp, as well as our backup plan, have fallen through! 

 We have the understanding that our long-time camp provider is relocating, due to the Alberta Government Elbow River Flood Mitigation Project. Unfortunately, this means that the old FAMI camp location is history. We are optimistic about continuing our successful partnership with this camp provider, but do not yet have the details of where and when this will happen.  

Available facilities in the area with amenities suited to the FAMI camp experience are few, but the FAMI board is working diligently, and with a limited timeline, to find a location for August camp. 

We have been very fortunate to find a May camp location on short notice that we believe will meet our needs and think everyone will be pleasantly surprised. There are still spots available at the May camp, if you are interested. There have been a few changes made to class offerings and instructors. Please do check the May class list for details! By the way, this year marks the 25th Anniversary of FAMI. We’d love to celebrate with you!

Hello FAMI Community,

We are back!  We are holding an IN-PERSON camp on the May Long Weekend! We need your support!

This has been a very unusual year, there is actually still space in our May Camp … and we have added a Ukulele class!!  So if you have been on the fence about coming … hesitate no more … Register today.

We’re looking forward to seeing you in person at the best ever ‘welcome back’ camp being held from May 20-23, 2022.
