Here are the details for the 2017 Fall East Coast jam. Registration will be open in late August.

Official kickoff is Wednesday night, October 18 at 6:30 PM dinner. Jammers can begin arriving as early as 5:00. Contact us if you need to arrive earlier.

See here for info about Claymont Court. See the East Coast Jam "About" pages to read about the jams and this site, in general.


  • The cost depends on your attendance and how soon you register.
  • A bed in a shared room and delicious meals are included in the charges.
  • Blankets and pillow are included; sheets and towels are available for a small laundry fee, like $5 to $10 total.
  • Arranging to camp onsite reduces your cost by $20/night (but you need to pay the difference if you wind up crashing indoors to escape weather, etc., and we may well not have spare beds).
  • Children 11 and younger also get discounted food and lodging. Speak with the organizers (see below) for details.

The basic rates for on-time registration, on or before September 30, depend on how many days you attend.

The prices are not yet final - we don't expect them to be much different than what's below, though, so this should give you a good idea.

$380 Full Jam - Wednesday dinner through Sunday lunch
$315 3 days - Thursday after lunch through Sunday lunch
$235 2 days - Friday after lunch through Sunday lunch

You can shift to not attend through Sunday - e.g., Wednesday through Saturday - but no skipping days, you must register for a contiguous block.

The actual cost depends on both your attendance plans and how soon you register. Here are the registration deadline offsets, with an example total based full-time attendance price:

Increase Amt Payment Dates Adjusted cost for Full Attendance
$0 On or before September 30 $380 - on-time registration
+$50 October 1 until October 10 (incl.) $430
+$75 October 11 until registration closes (likely Oct. 15) $455 - avoid this option, don't delay!

DEPOSIT = $50. Paying in full in advance helps - only the deposit part is non-refundable. The balance is due on arrival.

Workstudy: available, if we hear from you EARLY! Work study closes 2 weeks before the jam. Contact the workstudy organizer (see below) for details and arrangements.

How To Register

To register you must submit a completed registration form and pay at least your non-refundable deposit. You will also have to agree to and sign the liability waiver in order to participate at the jam. The registration page has complete instructions.

Avoid disappointment – register early! Registration will likely close Oct. 15, earlier if we run out of space.

When you register you'll have the option to pay online by credit card or PayPal account, or by sending a check with your registration form.
