SummerSongs ~ Songwriting Retreat & Camp

Sunday July 23-Saturday July 29, 2023

The 25th Annual SummerSongs @ the Stony Point Center (NY)

We’ve come a long way since our first camp when founder Penny Nichols brought her dream to life and lit a candle that’s still burning brightly today. Every camp has been special in one way or another, and this one will give us a chance to remember and celebrate our journey, both as campers and as a community. We welcome newcomers!

Registration will open on February 1, 2023 at

 (with our first-ever art class!)

Our songwriting camp began in 1999 as a dream realized by Penny. We’ve gathered every year since then in upstate New York to reconnect, collaborate, celebrate, and learn from and about one another and the world through the lenses of songwriting, creativity, and humanity.

We do this by presenting the finest songwriters we know who also happen to be great, generous, and humble communicators of this craft we hold so highly. We offer classes, coffeehouses, concerts, song circles, and community, and we’ve collectively discovered how meaningful and enriching our time together is.

We can’t wait to welcome you once more.
