Youth Folk Camp


Join us this summer for our folk school youth camp - a unique combination of summer camp community and folk school instruction in fiddle, guitar, pottery, and indigo dying! Campers may choose one major and minor class from the list below, all taught by master musicians and artists. In between their classes, campers will enjoy a variety of activities with camp friends including swimming, paddleboating, hiking, and the ropes course. A Camper Showcase for family and friends will be held on the last day. The Alabama Folk School Youth Camp is open to rising 5th-12th grades and some experience in fiddle and guitar is recommended.
