Folk Camp

guiding principles


  • Folk culture is organic and non-authoritative. 
  • There is tradition and there is the ever-present reality of change. We embrace both. 
  • We honour tradition and the wisdom passed on to us through the generations that preceded us,
  • and we honour the creative spirit that lives in each and every one of us, here and now.
  • We celebrate diversity.
  • We strive to leave this earth a better place for having us. 
  • We embrace that which is beautiful and lasting, and has been made with care and devotion.
  • We share. Songs, stories, food, hopes and dreams, concerns... We listen to learn.


  • be conscious of other people's need for space
  • be waste free: bring only reusable, natural (nontoxic) items
  • be present: use your mobile device only when necessary
  • be responsible: don't abuse any substances; smoke only in designated area
  • be open minded!
