Synergy (noun)—combined action or functioning, producing an effect that is greater than the sum of its individual elements or contributions.

In other words—a really GREAT community!

The Country Dance and Song Society’s summer camps are known for many things: excellent staff, beautiful surroundings, enthusiastic participants, and a devotion to the power of participatory dance, song and music to enrich our lives. We don’t just watch or listen to the stuff—we do it!

CDSS camp programs bring individuals together each week to: CREATE and strengthen our dance, song and music skills; CREATE a supportive environment for emerging talents; CREATE networks of people to share information with throughout the year; and CREATE opportunities for lifelong friendships.
