Fall Getaway Weekend

Each fall, FSSGB sponsors a weekend in a tranquil setting within easy driving distance of Boston. The weekend is filled with music -- song swaps, workshops and mini-concerts led by professional staff and campers on Saturday and Sunday. The Fall Getaway gives campers a chance to meet each other, trade songs and tunes, and enjoy a relaxing weekend away from the city.


Details for 2020

Due to COVID-19, the Fall Getaway Weekend for 2020 has been cancelled. We hope to meet again in September 2021, with the same staff members who were lined up for 2020 -- Bob & Jeanne Zentz and Tom Smith.


The getaway weekend includes a flea market, proceeds of which benefit the Fall Getaway Weekend scholarship fund. (Additional donations are needed and welcome!) Bring anything you like to donate to the flea market – preferably musical in nature, but clothes, household items and other donations are welcome! Anything that isn’t sold will be donated to a local charity.

Prindle Pond is about 1.5 hours west of Boston. All housing is in comfortable private rooms with modern indoor plumbing. Six delicious meals (Saturday lunch through Monday breakfast) are included, and vegetarians options are always available.

If you have any questions about the weekend, send email to send email to getaway@fssgb.org or call Lori at 978-264-9710.
