Bunk down in primitive cabins or pitch a tent, dine outdoors under a tent, and fiddle the days and nights away at the lakeside Maine Fiddle Camp. The program of workshops, jams, song swaps, concerts, and dances, focuses on the traditional dance music of the Scots-Irish, French, and Scandinavians, with a Maine accent.
While fiddle is the focus, other instruments available, including guitar, piano, bass, banjo, mandolin, accordion, harmonica, cello, whistle/flute, voice, and more. Camp is open to all ages and abilities, although children younger than 10 must be accompanied by an adult. The $350 pp fee ($300 for each additional family member) covers the program, cabin bunk or campsite, and meals.
