Mt Hood Kiwanis Camp
Rhododendron, OR (an hour east of Portland)

Registration is OPEN!

English Country Dance for experienced dancers  featuring two fabulous bands and callers, great workshop leaders, camper-led activities, and more!!!

This is a great community, so just being around everyone dancing in such a friendly atmosphere was wonderful.

Come join us for a wonderful extended weekend of dancing, singing, music making, friendship, frolic, and fun in the woods at the beautiful Mt Hood Kiwanis Camp, about an hour east of Portland, near Rhododendron, Oregon. The weather is usually perfect this time of year, with hiking trails, waterfalls, as well as great dancing, wonderful food, and good company!

“So many knowledgeable dancers. Varied program. Callers were great… partners & neighbors were always there to help me.”

This year focuses on English Country Dance and includes a full music track. You’ll find our program challenges and delights you. There’s ad-hoc gatherings, opportunities to socialize, and time to just hang out and recharge in the idyllic surroundings.

Learn new skills, enjoy new friends, and make wonderful new memories.

“The best part was the warmth of community, high level dancing, and the opportunity to experience excellent callers & hear fabulous music.”

Maximum camp cost is $445 ($415 for offsite, tent, or car/RV camping – see registration form for all options/prices) for 4 days/3 nights covering food, lodging, and program.  You’ll have good times and meet good folks at no extra charge!
