Camp Reviews

Posted by Clawdan on Saturday, July 16, 2016

Hi Folks,

Clawcamp is over and was a great success. Looking towards setting up a winter camp in Tucson. Proposed dates are March 10-12, 2017 but February 10-12 is also a possibility. Let me know what you think.

So, busy summer getting the place set to sell. Let me know if you are interested in this beautiful SE Ohio Appalachian homestead.

Reviews from camp so far:

I wanted to take time to thank you again for a such great weekend.
I now feel like I have a start to carry me on my trip into "ClawDom".
Where ever it tales me!
So it is with great admiration that I say thank you, thank you, and thank you
for being so tolerant and so helpful.

Hi Dan,Got home safe & sound about 4:30 this afternoon.  Thanks for a terrific weekend.  You are a great host and teacher.  Now, excuse me, I've gotta go play my banjo!

Made it back home safe and sound.  Just wanted to tell you again how great the weekend turned out. Appreciate your hospitality and the trailer hookup.   The class was outstanding with a tremendous amount of information that will certainly keep me busy for a while.   Liked your teaching style immensely with the self analysis and focus on the good as well as opportunities to improve.  I  will be seeing you again. Enjoy the summer. 


Hi Dan,
Thanks so much for hosting Claw Camp again this year. I really had a fabulous time! I wanted to let you know that I've posted a review of Camp to Banjo Hangout, and give you a copy of it, so you can have it and post it wherever it would work best for you. (
Dan Levenson does it again! Claw Camp East 2016 was wonderful! This was my second Claw Camp (my first was Claw Camp East 2015), and I have returned home feeling inspired and anxious to play more. I have truly never been so engaged by an instructor. Part of Camp’s success is that the number of attendees is limited, so Dan can give each camper his personal attention. Not only that, but Dan has the great ability to discern the best way for individuals to absorb information, and tailors his teaching style and the material he covers to match the individual. He frequently pushes you for feedback, so both you and he can stay in-line with your goals for the weekend. And the setting is perfect. Jamming on the front porch of the Homestead is just the way the old-timers would have done it. It’s definitely a great experience, and I look forward to doing it again.
Thanks again! And I just love my new banjo! Have a wonderful rest of the summer!
Who promises always to Play Nice!
Thanks to you all who came and had a banjo ball! Still east through about Labor Day Weekend. I have a few folks coming for private lessons and weekends. Still time to set up a lesson/visit for yourself! More soon.
Play Nice,

I would agree with everyone above. The camp was a nice banjo focused weekend I was expecting. Dan was a great host and a wonderful teacher.The conversations with Dan and the other campers were just as enjoyable as the class work.
Thanks again
