Yay! We just got the final word from the Park Ranger at Bothe State Park and we are good to go! And, we can now release a number of prime tent sites at Bothe for folks who didn’t get a spot when they first became available! So, if you are ready to join us for four fun‐packed days, camping, ukeing, jamming, singing, and playing at Bothe State Park in the beautiful Napa Valley, August 3 – 7, with Fred & Lynn Sokolow, and a whole cast of ukulele characters from near and far, then read on! We’ve got loads of fun, learning, and ukulele merriment coming your way.
If you have already secured your yurt, tent, or RV site at Bothe (or elsewhere) and are just waiting for a chance to register for the camp, here’s the scoop on registration and fees:

Kids aged 12 – 16 who are attending ukulele workshops are half-price (see “Youth Registration” below) but they must be accompanied by a full-paying adult.
Family Registration – $279/family
A “family” includes one full participant (Individual Registration) and one companion who does not plan to attending ‘ukulele workshops. Children who are not taking workshops are also included, though we’d prefer they were accompanied by a non-participating adult.

NEED A CAMP SITE?
If you do not yet have a campsite or other place to stay, you can reserve one of the tent sites we have available. For the time being we are making these extra camp sites available to folks who plan on staying for the entire camp, August 3 – 7. If, after a week or so, we still have tent sites available, we will release them for folks who are only able to attend Friday evening through Sunday morning or to folks who are bringing an RV and need more space. Please note, these are shared tent sites, and can hold up to 8 people. We are, however, restricting the number of tents to 3 per site, with 2 people maximum allowed per tent. Our goal is make Camp O available to as many happy campers as possible.
The fee for each tent site is $89 (2-people maximum per tent) and includes a vehicle pass for one car/tent for the duration of the camp. In order to reserve one of these tent sites, you must also register for Camp Oo-Koo-Lay-Lay.

WORD of WARNING
Please bear with us. This is the first year we have done this and we’re trying our best to make things work for everyone (including the State Park) and I am sure there will be plenty of “unanticipated” situations. So, we hope you are not only flexible, but willing to go with the flow to get in on the ground floor and help shape what we hope will become a wonderful family tradition. Wait a minute! What am I saying? You play the ‘ukulele! Of course you will go with the flow and keep a sense of humor at the same time!
