EVENING offerings include nightly concerts, a variety night, euchre tournaments, and other community gatherings, with potential for who-knows-what unplanned events to happen!
Be sure not to miss out on our AUCTION during camp week! Private lessons, commissioned tunes, original artwork, and more will be up for auction. Online bidding will occur over the week of camp. Stay tuned for more details.
AlgomaTrad is about gathering, connecting, playing, learning, and laughing along with the AlgomaTrad community, and we hope you’ll join in the fun!
All camp activities, except concerts, will take place on Zoom. You can create a free Zoom account at zoom.us.
