Folk Camp is an arts-based intergenerational summer camp that offers participants a week long immersion into folk culture through workshops in traditional singing, craft, dance and cooking with a focus on polyphony and Eastern European folklore. Participants attend up to 3 workshops a day that run the course of 5 full days, in addition to participating in evening dances, storytelling and bonfire jams. A temporary "village"- the camp provides an opportunity for singing, dancing, and crafting practices to be embodied in cultural context. The singing worshops this year include: Ukrainian/Belarusian polyphony, Romani singing, Kalevala (Finnish ballads), American Folk Song, and Native Drum Circle. A complementary children's program runs alongside the adult program. Family and friends are welcome to join evening dinners and dances at the end of camp. Tuition includes all organic meals, lodging and craft materials.
