Programme of Folk Camps

With Folk Camps you can experience folk music, singing and dancing, and take part in the wide range of other activities on offer. If you like music, have a sense of humour and enjoy meeting new people, this is the place to find out more about our family-friendly holidays.

Each year Folk Camps finds beautiful locations throughout the UK (and sometimes Europe) to host events. Our holidays include:

  • week long fully-catered summer camps
  • self-catered camping weekends at bank holidays
  • hotel breaks during the winter
  • “workshop weekends” where we concentrate more on singing, dancing or music

We find sites in attractive locations, where there are also lots of places to visit and things to do. There will be a field to camp on and either a hall or a marquee for eating, dancing, playing, singing and any number of other activities.

The 2020 programme is now open for bookings.

The prices have been frozen to the 2019 rates, and the summer week camps have a discount scheme, initially 10% discount, which will reduce to 5% and then full price as the camps fill up. Book Early!

Some camp staff are not yet confirmed, so the remaining staff will get filled in over the next few weeks. The summer leaders and musicians are all confirmed.

Here are the current season’s Folk Camps.
