Ashokan Family Camp

 

An all-ages, hands-on experience in music, dance, storytelling, puppetry, nature, crafts and pure play. Something for the whole family. Join us at Ashokan Family Camp this summer. Bring your parents, your kids, and your friends, and share music, dancing, singing, storytelling, puppet-making, nature trails, traditional crafts, and quality time in the great outdoors… age-old activities that enhance well-being and bring people together.

This is not a simply a kid’s camp, but truly an experience for all members of the community, with or without children. Librarians, teachers, and anyone who works with children will find ideas and materials to enrich their curriculum. From babies to teens and parents to grandparents, Ashokan Family Camp will leave you with hearts full of music and family memories that will last a lifetime.
