If you're concerned about skill level or not being a musician at all, the FAQ points out: "Programming is developed to accommodate all ranges of playing. All workshops are optional and open to everyone. Non-musicians are welcome to come hang, explore, and have fun. It is quite common for non-musicians to attend camps of this nature. This camp is for those who want to learn about the music of Dinosaur Jr." You can also bring your own alcohol (but can only consume it in the camping area or in your inside accommodations).
