Youth Folk Camp


REGISTRATION OPENS THE FIRST WEEK OF JANUARY

Join us during the summertime for the Alabama Folk School's only camp designed just for youth! Youth Folk Camp is a unique combination of summer overnight camp, community and folk school instruction in fiddle, guitar, mandolin, pottery, painting, and more! Campers may choose one major and minor class for the workshop, all taught by master musicians and artists.  Campers will select the major class from the list below and the minor class on the first day of camp.  In between their classes, campers will enjoy a variety of activities with camp friends including swimming, paddle boating, 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. Experience in fiddle and guitar is required for the music classes. Beginner students may select music classes as their minor. 

Additional classes will be announced soon.
