Youth Get Together 2022
June 6, 2022 – June 10, 2022
The Handmade Music School is excited to announce the First Annual Floyd Youth Get Together Camp: a traditional music and dance camp for kids ages 8-14.
The camp will take place at the Floyd Events Center, which is part of the Floyd EcoVillage in Floyd, Virginia! This amazing five day camp will take place from 9am – 2pm Monday June 6 – Friday, June 10, 2022. The facility features a beautiful and secluded setting on 75 private acres just a few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and the charming town center of Floyd.
The Floyd Youth Get Together Camp will be a fun-filled week immersed in the traditional music and dance of Southwest Virginia. Our camp will offer exciting and interactive classes in fiddle, banjo, guitar, bass, singing, and dance. Morning and afternoon sessions will feature instruction, performance, presentations and enrichment activities with visiting musicians. Kids will jam together, be involved in square-dancing and square dance calling, perform and learn about the long history of music and dance in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Our mission is to ensure that kids coming to our Youth Get Together camp experience the community and joy found in our traditional music and dance.
