Get your saddest songs together & get ready for a decidedly not-sad time making music with the Milk Carton Kids, JOE PUG, Vera sola & special guests.

Get your saddest songs together and get ready for a decidedly not-sad time making music with the Milk Carton Kids. An experience unlike any other, the Sad Songs Summer Camp offers two days of immersive classes and three evenings of entertainment in the serene setting of the Catskill Mountains. The camp will provide a space for a lucky group of individuals to learn, co-write, workshop, and, if desired, perform for an audience of like-minded peers— all with the guidance of The Milk Carton Kids and some of their favorite songwriters and comedians. Mornings will have Kenneth, Joey and their hand-picked guest artists guiding master classes that explore the ins and outs of harmony singing, songwriting, arrangement, lyricism, stage-banter and performance. After lunch, students will break off into workshops, working solo or with other campers on the skills of their choice, with encouragement and tips from TMCK and other SSSC instructors. Evenings are packed with entertainment, with performance opportunities for campers (don’t worry they’re not required), late night jam sessions, and informal song circles. Not to mention two intimate Milk Carton Kids concerts. Whether it’s over breakfast or around the campfire, students will have the opportunity to hang out with TMCK and friends while learning the tricks of their trade. Campers will come from all over the world to hone already established skills, take creative risks, and make lifelong personal and professional connections. Maybe you’ll even form a harmony duo of your own. By the end of the week you’ll be writing sad songs and making happy memories. So reserve your spot today!
