Here are the details for the 2013 Fall East Coast jam. Registration has been closed for the Fall 2013 jam. If you were hoping to attend, please write to the jam organizers at for a spot on the waiting list. If you're planning to bring a tent, there's a better chance we can accomodate you.

Official kickoff is Wednesday night, October 16 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 will probably not have spare beds).
  • Children 11 and younger also get discounted food and lodging. Speak with the organizers (see below) for details.

The baseline for on-time registration, on or before September 28, depends on how many days you attend - all attendance is expected to go through Sunday.

$325 Full Jam - Wednesday dinner through Sunday lunch
$275 3 days - Thursday after lunch through Sunday lunch
$215 2 days - Friday after lunch through Sunday lunch
$150 1 day - Saturday after lunch through Sunday lunch

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 28 $325 - on-time registration
+$50 September 29 until October 8 (incl.) $375
+$75 October 9 until registration closes (likely Oct. 13) $400 - 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, including the registrar's address, but uses pricing, contact address, and other information from this page.

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.
