Songs 4 Nature: Adult Winter Camp

Theme: Resilience

With frigid air, icy conditions, and short days, winter can leave people feeling isolated and anxious, even without added worries due to COVID-19. But winter is also full of natural beauty and inspiring experiences that can help us feel safe, supported, and resilient. To foster those experiences with a focus on music, we’re excited to be offering our first-ever adult winter Songs 4 Nature program!

With support from Saskatchewan Outdoors and SaskEnergy, this program includes 4 evening Zoom sessions over 2 weeks, giving you a chance to dive into songwriting and draw inspiration from nature, supported by a team of established local artists. You’ll also find ways to connect with nature close to home through self-guided “homework” exercises. All levels of skill and experience are welcome!

This camp is also contributing to cutting-edge research about creativity and nature connection. You will be invited to take part in this research project when you register.

People who take part in all 4 sessions will be invited to perform during an online wind-up on March 5th, which will be organized and promoted as a SideDoor event. The songs you create may also be featured on the Songs 4 Nature website at

Registration:  $90 /person for 4 sessions, taxes and fees included. 

Sessions are now full. If you would like to be put on the wait list, send a request.

Our Facilitators

Songs 4 Nature is coordinated by RSM Curator of Human Ecology, Glenn Sutter, a performing songwriter who has released 4 albums of folk-rock about nature, love, and the human condition.

Three other local songwriters will be facilitating each event and will be available for scheduled one-on-one sessions, to work on song ideas. Our songwriting mentors are:

2019 Juno Nominee Megan Nash, winner of numerous Saskatchewan awards and Western Canadian Music Awards two-time nominee.


Ryan Hicks, a Regina-raised singer-songwriter, who makes melodic, cinematic alt-pop music. If McCartney, Brian Wilson and Fleet Foxes made music for David Lynch.


Kara Golemba, an award-winning songwriter with a voice that can be “sweet and charming or powerfully raised to rattle the teacups.”
