Here’s what one of Trad Camp’s youth leaders has to say about their experience:
“My very first time playing the fiddle was at Trad camp, I was nervous and had no idea what I was getting into. Not only did Trad Camp welcome me into this community, but they have continued to inspire me throughout my six years of playing. ┬áTrad Camp is a great opportunity for both beginners and experienced players because of the diverse group of instructors who are used to teaching a wide variety of skill levels. This is one of the reasons that many return year after year; there is always something you can learn. When I first started, I showed up to Trad Camp without knowing how to hold a bow or how to tune fiddle strings. I returned to Trad Camp even after I started taking fiddle lessons, and many do the same. Trad Camp gives kids amazing opportunities and introduces them to a whole new community of diverse and interesting people.” – Hadley S.
