The Bannerman Family, every one of them!

Every year the Bannerman family grows larger and larger! In 1969 camp began with Glenn, Evelyn and their 4 children - Craig, Ren, Beth, and Lee Ann. Next came spouses, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. We are a family of four generations, each of whom contributes individual skills to this unique weekend. We are committed to providing the best experience for every camper; from the youngest to the eldest. That's why everyone keeps coming back!

Founders Glenn and Evelyn
The couple who started it all 50 plus years ago. Glenn & Evelyn attended other folk dance camps in the 60s and decided there was a great need for one that was focused on intergenerational programming. They envisioned a camp where young and old folks could come together to dance, celebrate, and build community. They've done a mighty fine job, just ask our campers who come back year after year after year!
