Camp Jack Hazard Benefit Show Slated
Brett Dennen

Join Brett Dennen and his band for a special benefit concert, set for Saturday, Nov. 23 at The State Theatre in Modesto. The show begins at 8 p.m. and proceeds will benefit Camp Jack Hazard. The State is at 1307 J St., downtown Modesto.

Presented by Arthur Sipma Insurance Agency and American Home Loans Inc., tickets are being sold through the Jack and Buena Foundation.

The Jack and Buena Foundation is working on its 10th year of running the historic Camp Jack Hazard program. This Camp Jack Hazard Benefit Concert is a primary way that the Foundation raises money to help make camp possible for nearly one-third of its participants that need some sort of financial support in order to attend the summer camp. Dennen and his band will offer up an amazing evening of fun, friendship, and great music. Camp Jack Hazard’s motto is: “It will change your summer, it may change your life!”

As a songwriter, performer, watercolor artist, and environmental conservationist and outdoorsman, the shows Dennen performs and the events he hosts generate positive impact – he gathers people together to consistently try to make the world a better place.

Dennen has spent much of 2019 touring with the Lift and Vacationer Tours. Previous tours include Jason Mraz, John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Pete Murray, Michael Franti, and others. He is a proud supporter of Camp Jack Hazard, having grown up first a camper, then a counselor. He learned to play the guitar while attending the camp as a kid.

For more than 90 years, Camp Jack Hazard has provided fun, safe adventures for campers age 6 to 17 in the heart of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Camp Jack Hazard offers many of the traditional summer camp experiences including campfires, skits, songs, games, theme days and camp dances. In addition, the camp offers unique adventure, arts and crafts, high and low challenge course, and nature programs. Uniquely, they offer wilderness skills, backpacking and backcountry ethics that are taught to and practiced by every camper.

Camp Jack Hazard is at 6,000 feet elevation, one mile past Dardanelles on Highway 108.

Tickets for the Nov. 23 concert include First Tier/Lower Level at $65 and Second Tier/Balcony at $35.
