August 2 - 9, 2014


This is a chance for teachers to attend a week-long folk camp for people of all ages. You will observe and participate while master folklorists teach groups of children traditional dances, songs, crafts, stories and rituals. You will participate in these folk traditions at an adult level yourself and "collect" by audio-recording, interviewing, note taking and experiencing traditional activities. We will meet daily in a Teacher Seminar led by Kari Smith to reflect on your observations and experiences and to share newly-collected activities.
