Olympia Kids Fiddle Camp, founded in 2011, is the collaborative vision of Deb Collins and Pamela Margon. As private fiddle teachers and active musicians in the Olympia folk community, they wanted to create a space for young aspiring musicians to learn together during the summer time. Located at the Meeting House at Priest Point in beautiful Northeast Olympia, our host site provides as with a lush forest landscape in which we conduct our day. The focus of our camp is music; children will experience small group instruction at their ability level, as well as the opportunity for individual tutoring sessions. In addition, we dedicate ample time to folk dance, crafts, sharing meals, and of, course, our annual water balloon fight.

Our camp hours for 2017 are 9am-3pm, Monday through Friday, with a culminating performance on Friday evening, August 25.
The curriculum for the 2017 will focus on a rich variety of musical traditions from countries and regions of the world- stay tuned for our program :)
Fiddle Camp is currently seeking qualified volunteers for the 2017 session in a variety of positions (no musical experience necessary) . For more information, please click here
