TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW FOR THE 40TH ANNUAL SPRING THING! COMING TO CAMP CANADENSIS MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND, MAY 22-25, 2015!
NOW WITH A NEW EARLIER START TIME OF 2PM SO YOU DON'T HIT TRAFFIC!
Sponsored by the Philadelphia Folksong Society, Spring Thing is a magical get-away weekend filled with song, dance, crafts and fun. YOU, the participant, have made Spring Thing the most well loved and popular weekend of its kind. We have over 70 great workshops - from Candle Making for Tots to Songs of the Underground Railroad.
There is dancing all day long to live music with instruction - squares, international, hambo, clogging, contra, Irish, Israeli, Tango - you name it, we do it. There is also an International Folk Dance Party on Friday night (including instruction). There are instrumental workshops. You bring your guitar, banjo, fiddle, dulcimer, mandolin, autoharp, dancing feet and singing voices, your family and your friends. We teach, we play, we jam, we have way too much fun! We also have craft workshops - for kids and adults too. We bring the supplies, you bring the desire.
Spring Thing is always Memorial Day Weekend - You let us know how important it was to keep it that weekend. A few years ago we moved to Camp Canadensis - truly an adventure in luxury. Accommodations are dormitory style with 10-20 in a cabin. All cabins have private stall showers and bathrooms, and the dining room has outdoor decks overlooking the sandy beach of Lake Lenape. All meals are included throughout the weekend and catered by the camp staff.
Spring Thing participants create and run all of the workshops. Have a great idea - sign up to host a workshop when registering for Spring Thing. Remember- Spring Thing emphasizes participation!
All children 6 and under are now free! Please tell us how many free tickets you want.
