FOLK CAMP CANADA is a registered not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing accessible community programming in the folk arts, with particular attention to the cultural traditions of Ukraine & Eastern Europe. We run ongoing educational programs through our Folk School, as well as coordinate several folk music and dance events throughout the year. We connect folk artists and artisans with schools, community organizations, and festivals, in addition to hosting our annual Summer Folk Camp, a week-long program of workshops and activities. We welcome people of all identities and backgrounds; you don’t need to have Eastern European heritage to join!
OUR MISSION: to bring people closer to the earth and one another through folk art tradition.
We envision a growing community built around learning & embracing traditional village ways, through folk art, song, dance, and food. We envision engagement in all the best aspects of village life: cooperative living, close connection to the earth, creative expression, and meaningful ritual and celebration. By exploring & sharing the cultural heritage of this land, and of Eastern Europe, we preserve and cultivate ancient knowledge & wisdom into a vibrant and spirited living tradition.
