Register for Camp Kootenay
Fiddleworks aims to build community (at a personal, local and global level) through music and the arts, using mentorship and celebration in a multi-generational setting (which values relationship with others and the earth).
Community is key to the success of our camps and it is our top priority. We want our programs to give the opportunity to give back, and to be available to everyone.
At registration, you will have an opportunity to donate towards a bursary for a low income family or if you would like to give back by helping with a simple job, sign up to volunteer. It takes a village!
