Northwest Passage Dance Camp - 2020

Registration is open

Meanwhile, here is some of the general information...

Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp, an hour east of Portland near Rhododendron, OR, features a large wooden dance floor in the main lodge, other spaces for workshops and jamming, and a variety of housing options. You can save $20 on registration by providing your own tent, RV or nearby motel room, or using one of the shared "platform tent" spaces at camp. See accommodations for more details. Note: campsite does not provide bedding.

A dance camp is a community creation where campers dance, eat, and commune with each other in a collective setting.  It couldn't take place without the generous contribution of time and energy by all.  We ask that campers volunteer for two or more "chores" during the weekend, so that Northwest Passage will continue to be a rich and joyous experience for all.  There will be camper chore sign ups sheets near the entrance to Fanning Hall when you check in.  Thank you in advance for pitching in!

Back by popular demand, Beth Gibans will provide us with delicious meals.  There will be options for both carnivores and vegetarians. Beth will make reasonable efforts to satisfy special dietary needs if advance notice is provided.  Note: we do NOT provide dinner on Friday night, so eat before you arrive, or please bring something for yourself.

If You Must Cancel
Your fee, less $35, will be refunded if you let us know by Aug 6th.  After Aug 6th your full fee will be retained if we cannot find a replacement camper.  Please do not find your own replacement.
