July 14 - 21, 2018



Put down your screens. Leave behind the hustle and stress of your every-day life. Pack up your dancing shoes, your instruments, and your festive attire. Come to laughter, music, song, and dance. Come and remember the joy of creating something new and fun with others. Come to the woods, to the land between the ponds!

Family Week at Pinewoods truly is a place of magic and joy. The week provides campers with opportunities to share traditional English and American dance, music, and song, as well as the beauty of the outdoors. Nestled between two beautiful New England ponds, Pinewoods camp offers idyllic swimming and canoeing options. And Family Week is a great way to spend time with your children, your grandchildren, your nieces and nephews, or other children dear to you. Adults without children are also welcome.

Our staff includes top notch teachers and musicians from across the country. Daily programing includes English country dance, contras, squares, ritual and clogging options for teens and adults. Youth participants enjoy age-appropriate music, song, and dance classes during their morning classes, with art and drama mixed in. In the afternoons there are opportunities for intergenerational learning, such as a community chorus, dance band class, slow jam for beginning musicians, a community art project, woodcarving, and more. During the camper-led offerings time, everyone is encouraged to organize or lead an activity of their choosing.

Whether you're looking for a community experience, special family time, or a chance to grow your intergenerational dance, music, and song repertoire, Family Week at Pinewoods will fill you with inspiration to sustain you through the year. We hope to see you there!
