AlgomaTrad is dedicated to preserving and passing on traditional music, dance, art, and craft that are part of our Canadian culture and heritage. Every August since 2004, we have organized a one-week camp that offers workshops and concerts in traditional music, dance, art and craft at the Algoma Music Camp site on St. Joseph Island in Ontario (not far from Sault Ste. Marie). In 2015, we are changing the venue, length of camp, and general structure for a variety of reasons…but the camp will occur! Details will be forthcoming on this website once they are finalized, and folks who subscribe to our email list will be notified as soon as we can confirm those details.
Whatever the structure it does take, The AlgomaTrad Family Camp will continue to be a community affair for families and individuals of all ages and abilities featuring musician/artist teachers who are passionate about their music, dance or artisanry. Learn to play or perfect your skills on nearly any trad instrument, dance nightly to called dances, eat fabulous meals featuring locally grown produce, enjoy the outdoors, jam, sing along, draw and much more while making new friends that you’ll keep for life!
