Why "Spring Fever?" Because the temperature is rising!  This is a high-energy weekend of hot contras, exuberant English country dance, and exhilarating music that is sure to bring on that elusive dancer's high.

Whether you're a dancer, caller, or musician, the program will excite and challenge you.  We start with Contra and English Country dance but it doesn't end there.  Watch for surprises like waltz, swing, hambo, polka, and other set or couple dances, not to mention the music jam sessions.

Our experienced dance leaders and great live bands will bring you workshops that give you a good time while teaching you how to improve your technique.  And don't forget our Friday night welcome dance, our Saturday night "Community Blowout," and a final dance party to close out camp on Sunday afternoon!

Enjoy the wonderful ambiance of our site at Monte Toyon camp in Aptos, California, in the redwoods just south of Santa Cruz.  You can dance, dance, dance, but there's even more to the camp - explore the hiking trails, join a sing-along, make new friends or just relax.
