September 13-16, 2021

Monday – Thursday prior to MerleFest at the beautiful and spacious grounds of the Camp Harrison YMCA at Herring Ridge, 10 miles outside of Wilkesboro, NC.

To maximize safety at this camp, virtually all the teaching will be outdoors, with participants spaced. Close harmony singing will be masked. Outdoor dining will be available for all meals. All participants to date have been vaccinated, including three recently vaccinated. Merlefest is now “full vaccination or recent negative test required.”

Each student must submit either proof of COVID vaccination or a negative COVID test dated no earlier than 72 hours prior to start of camp.

All Wernick Method classes will be conducted either outdoors or in very well-ventilated indoor spaces.
