Hello, Muddah . . . . . Hello, Fadduh.


Fred & Lynn SokolowPlease join us in the heart of the Napa Valley at beautiful Bothe State Park, August 3 – 7, 2016 with Fred & Lynn Sokolow, Rhan Wilson, and Rick Zeek and a full cast of ukulele characters to lead workshops, string alongs, jam sessions, and tons of ukulele fun.

It’s ‘Ukulele Summer Camp!  

And we hope you’ll bring the entire family.


Those who have joined us in the past for the Wine Country ‘Ukulele Festival, West Coast Ukulele Retreat, or Hawai’i Island ‘Ukulele Retreat (even our first Camp Oo-Koo-Lay-Lay in 2012) may know what to expect.  The rest of you will just have to take a chance on having the most fun you can with your ukulele on in a beautiful part of the world with a campground full of enthusiastic ukulele players and some world renowned instructors!  (What could go wrong?)  As always, our goal is to create a wonderful learning experience (along with a good measure of fun) in a beautiful part of the world for every member of the family and an opportunity to make some wonderful new friends and reunite with some old ones.

In order to participate in all of our ukulele activities and workshops you will need to register for Camp Oo-Koo-Lay-Lay as an Individual, Family, or Youth. The sooner you do this, the better, as it will allow us to start considering what else we can add to the package.  More instructors? More workshops? More action-packed events? Some food? (Dare I say “snacks?) Camp swag?

DSC_9663If you do not live in the area, you will need to find your own accommodations. As of this writing, there are no more campsites or yurts available at Bothe/Napa Valley State Park for the entire duration of camp, with the exception of  a number of wheelchair accessible sites. For more information on these please visit Reserve America.

We do, however have a number of tent sites set aside for folks who are registering for camp and are willing to share a tent site (not a tent!) with other campers. Please visit our registration page for more information. Right now we are only making them available to folks wanting to come to camp for all four days.  Additionally, there are ten “walk-in sites” at the park that might be available to tent campers on a first come, first served basis. (Yours odds of getting one of those arepretty good if you arrive mid-week.)

We’re building a brand new event with Camp Oo-Koo-Lay-Lay, based on a combination of past experience, input from past participants, and some new ideas. We sincerely hope that you will join us and help launch, what we’re hoping will become, a wonderful annual tradition…….for your family and ours.


Wait a minute…

it’s stopped raining…

kids are swimming…

kids are sailing…
