The Ashokan Center builds community through shared experiences in nature, history, music and art. For 40 years we have hosted traditional Music & Dance Camps at our 385 nature preserve. This year we have learned how to host them online!

“Joyous and talented teachers. Feeling not only warmly welcomed, but also individually included interactively” – Amy

“The teachers were so reachable and personable. I really enjoyed the whole camp and it was so well run. I hope they will continue to have virtual camps in the future since we live so far away.” – Timothy

“Wonderfull and inspiring teachers. I appreciate that every single teacher I had came fully prepared and then some. Especially given the challenges of technology, this was extraordinary. I know that a big reason that things worked so smoothly was due to the facilitators really having the acts together. Huge kudos to the behind -the- scenes worker bees. Thank you Ashokan folks, you will definitely see me and mine again some day. Hugs , real ones, Yes, the kind that lasts that extra little bit” – Donna

“You all have perfected this format and created a rich and connected experience that I didn’t think possible online. Other groups should be taking lessons from you all on how to do this well.” – anonymous

Come join the Ashokan family to celebrate, learn, connect, deepen your music, make new friends, and brighten your day. Our events are open to all folks, all ages and all orientations. 

Join our email list to learn about more upcoming online offerings.

Connect on Facebook with your fellow campers before, during, and after!
