Virtual Camp

While we regret the cancelation of both our Mendocino and Iroquois Springs workshops due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to have presented our first-ever, completely online Virtual Camps, each with three days of immersive classes, live-music performances, and community gatherings. Virtual Camp West Coast (July 17-19, 2020) was a great success, with 350 people registered. Our East Coast Virtual Camp (August 14-16) is now complete, with over 380 attendees!

Registration is now closed for both camps. Stay tuned for more EEFC-sponsored virtual events & classes!

June Camp

May 31, 2018 at 7:00 pm – June 3, 2018 at 12:00 pm

"June Camp" is an annual residential international folk dance weekend in the upper Midwest, which this year features Croatian dance with Željko Jergan, and will be held from Thursday evening, May 31, to Sunday noon, June 3, at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois.
In addition to Željko's dance workshops and singing sessions, there are nightly dance parties with live music by members of the Pinewoods Band - Tom Pixton and friends. Another tradition of June Camp is the "Dance Exchange," where attendees can request, when they register, reviews of older dances that may have been forgotten. Zeljko, as well as local teachers will fulfill these requests in special workshop sessions.
Various registration options are available. Registration and payment may be done online at https://sites.google.com/site/junecampifd/. The late fee deadline for camp registration is May 10, and no registrations involving food or lodging can be taken after May 16. Check the website, or email junecampifd@gmail.com for more information.
