Here is the tentative Staff List for 2022
Sadly, Pinewoods Camp closed just before the planned 2021 gathering, too late to organize a virtual event. But we did have a Zoom chat, and many of our projected artists dropped in. See the staff lists for 2020 (virtual), 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2015 . Our staff members are not only performers, they are also teachers who enjoy sharing their knowledge.
As well as listening and learning, campers will find plenty of opportunities to sing, jam, dance, and hang out with the staff and each other.
This event is being put together by the Folk Music Society of New York, Inc., with support from a bunch of associated organizations, including
|WHY?||Because we are mad about traditional music and dance of all flavors|
|HOW MUCH?||The cost of camp for 2022 is $840 for members of associated organizations, $890 for non-members. The fee covers all events, lodging, and meals from dinner on Saturday through breakfast on Friday. Note: the food is excellent, and dietary issues and allergies are well addressed.
Some scholarships and work scholarships are available (see below) — contact us if you are interested.
