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, we offer 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). The annual summer camp is 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 in the great barn, 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!
