Join us for six days full of dancing, music, crafts, swimming, games, storytelling, and too much fun…

Family Dance Camp is about the time-honored tradition of movement and music, and the camp will be filled with fun folk-dancing for the whole family. There will be something for all ages, including English Country dance, square dances, contra dances, sword dancing, step dancing, couples dances, and daily community dances that bring the entire camp together.

The music at camp is the best! The extremely talented musical staff will make your toes tap for dancing and your ears happy from listening. The staff will provide music for all kinds of dancing, will lead workshops for new and experienced musicians alike, and will lead the camp in joyous song. Instruction will be offered for many instruments, including fiddle, guitar, piano, and mandolin.

Enjoy the eternal art of storytelling. Our professional storyteller will enchant children and adults alike with storytelling sessions every day and a bedtime story as well. After the evening story the children will be serenaded off to bed with our traditional pied-piper parade.

Family Dance Camp craft classes offer adults and children a chance to make things with their hands. Our talented and knowledgeable artists will help all ages take pride in what they create.
