It was the experience of a lifetime… you’re just surrounded by so much inspiration.

Kari NaumovaCamp Ned 2016

You can come here as a beginning songwriter, and you can be here with very experienced songwriters, and you can learn from them… The one-on-one sessions for mentoring are great… it’s been a great camp.

Kyle GreshamCamp Ned 2016

You have just the most amazing group of experienced songwriters and brand new songwriters, and through it all you get this wonderful mix of people who are so willing to help you grow and learn.

Emma SlonikerCamp Ned 2015, 2016 and 2017

You owe it to yourself to come to Nederland to hang out at Darryl’s house and Teresa’s house and write your songs.
