MAINE FIDDLE CAMP

Teens may attend on their own, although whole families are welcome at this very fun camp that's gotten rave reviews by Merriconeag families & everyone else I've met who has ever attended. -- Mariana Tupper (ask Lily and/or the Pierce family if you want to know more!)

June weekend 17-19 • June week 19-24 - August week 7-12 • August week 14-19

Great food, fantastic staff & music & dancing, music downloads, plenty of performance opportunities, jams, friends, families and more!!

The June 19-24th week still has openings!

Please consider joining us for this special time where there are fewer campers, a great staff, a bit slower pace and slightly quieter atmosphere. Or course, the optimum MFC experience is a full week, but a great alternative would be to attend a day or two. The cost per day during this June week is only $75. Consider staying on for a few days after the weekend. We all know the weekend is just too short!! Please join us and attend all or any part of the June week 19-24. Registration forms online @ www.mainefiddle.org.
