The Dancing Bear Bead retreat is a very unique event. We found a quiet nice campground, close to Julian. Town is just 15 minutes away. The Paso Picacho campground is near Lake Cuyamaca. There is cell phone service, bathrooms near by. We love this campground, we have stayed there a few times and have had a great time.
The Bead Retreat per person rate includes camping and social beading.
Bead Retreat weekend pass is $100
This rate includes: 1 free bead class, 3 days of beading, lots of fun bead socializing and camping fees.
Non-beader camping fee is $30
This rate includes: all of the camping location fees. It does not include any of the bead sessions. This fee is for any friends or family, per person, attending the weekend that want to camp but not bead.
We will have tables, chairs for classes & beading sessions. We do suggest bringing LED battery operated lamps for beading at night. The campground has rules for no generators past 8pm.
We will bring our two Tipis for classroom and social beading.
The Bead Retreat fees will cover camping for 1 person, and beading sessions. There is a non-beader camper rate, this fee is to help cover the costs of the campsites and common areas for the retreat.
Bead Retreat attendees are welcome to sign up for classes during the weekend at an additional cost. We will have a small pop shop at the campground.
We will have two tracks of beading classes. Native American and Modern Beading. Classes will be announced soon and are an additional cost.
We will have beading sessions every day, all day.
Friday and Saturday night at approx 8pm we will watch a movie projected on the Tipi!
We will also have a small Dancing Bear shop at the campground for beading convenience.
Camping equipment is required. RV spaces are extremely limited, there might be additional fees per night depending on size. There are multiple fire pits for cooking and fire pits around the reserved sites.
For those who do not want to camp in tents, there are campsite cabins available. The closest hotel is at the Viejas Resort. We are trying to get group discounted rates and will post more information as we get closer to the event. Those who wish to stay in the hotel or campsite cabin still will pay the Bead Retreat fee per person in addition to the cabin/hotel fees.
Do you have friends/family who don't bead, but you want them to come camping with you? Sign them up for the non beader rate.
