Break out of the Winter doldrums with "Spring Fever" - 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.

Our 3-track program is actually 3 complete camps side by side.  You can follow all Contra, all English, our expanded all singing, music and jam sessions, or mix and match as you like.  Go with what you love, or try out something new.  We'll throw in a few surprises, too!

Register now! (Online or using our printed flyer!)

Enjoy the wonderful ambiance of our site at Monte Toyon camp in Aptos, California, in the coastal 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.
