This is an edited PermaThread©, and all messages posted here are subject to editing and deletion.
This thread is intended to serve as a permanent list of folk music camps and gatherings (not festivals)
-Joe Offer-

I'm wondering if some permanent thread could be made so that people could have all these weekend camps and gatherings in one place and refer to them when planning vacation time etc. I know the local ones pretty well, Rainycamp in early Feb; Singtime around Spring Break; Camp Alexandra around 4th of July..but I might make it down south, back east, to San Francisco etc...Any chance of this? mg

Hi, Mary - why don't we post them in the Festivals (click) PermaThread, and we'll make up a table to list them.

well, a good idea but I think they would get lost in the large number of festival listings and also it isn't by date. Something like the calendar format under the recurring song circles would be nice. I am on the verge of volunteering to do something but maybe after Sunnycamp is over. mg

OK, Mary - let's ask people to post information about camps and such here, and see where it goes.

The San Francisco Folk Music Club has its annual Camp Harmony during the week after Christmas, in the mountains outside Santa Cruz. Cooking is by the charming and talented Debby McClatchy (and Joe Offer was rehired today as Chief of Kitchen Cleanup). If you register before November 2, Cost is $250 for the 5-day camp, $170 for children.
I can't find the sheet that has the dates for the camp, and the newsletter in my hand doesn't give dates. It always ends on New Year's Day after a fabulous New Year's Eve celebration. It's a five-day camp, give or take a day.
The Website won't help you at all - it hasn't been updated in years.

Thanks to Mudcatter Charlie Baum (and others), information for the annual Getaway of the Folklore Society of Greater Washington is easy to find online. Charlie says the dates are:
Friday October 18, 2002 through Sunday October 20, 2002
(and even into Monday morning, October 21, 2002)
location: Camp Ramblewood (Darlington, MD) [near Havre de Grace]
This camp has become the unofficial official annual gathering for US Mudcatters.

OK. I shall officially submit Sunnycamp. October 18-20, 2002. Probably first weekend in October thereafter. Long Beach Peninsula, Washington. URL: www.angelfire.com/folk/sunnycamp.

Unofficially:

Watch for Rainycamp through Seattle Folklore Society info. Usually first part of February.

Watch for Singtime Frolics around mid-March, put on by Portland Folklore Society.

Watch for Camp Alexandra (or another location now) put on by Vancouver Folk Song Society in late June/early July.

Watch for another camp around time of U.S. Thanksgiving weekend also put on by Vancouver Folk Song Society.

Is Penny Sidor still putting on the women's singing camp in Vancouver, mid-October?

I'm sure this would be good for music camps wherever in the world. Looks like this thread hasn't been updated in a long, long time. The San Francisco and Washington (DC) camps have new locations.
I'll put this on my "to do" list. If you have camps to add, please do.
