GD Summer Camp '24

29 August - 01 September | Beukenhof in Biezelmortel, The Netherlands

With instrument workshop groups to match every level (from absolute beginner to super advanced), this is where you hone your gypsy jazz skills. Work on phrasing, speed, licks, or those crazy dominant subs. All instruments welcome!

Campfire jamming until sunrise

The Summer Camp takes place at our new location Beukenhof in Biezenmortel. Beukenhof is located near s’Hertogenbosch.

The location used to be a monastery and often hosts music groups due to its fine acoustics. It can cater to around 250 guests.

The spacious garden with different sitting areas allows for simultaneous outdoor workshops or jams. And there is a variety of teaching rooms, concert hall incl. a café that can be used during the workshop.
