Regional "June Camp," a tradition in the Midwest folk dance community,  returns for its 61st year. The weekend will again be held in the comfortable and convenient location (new as of last year): Northern Illinois University, in DeKalb, IL, located 60 miles west of Chicago and 100 miles south of Madison.
(That puts it 90 miles from Milwaukee and 280 miles from St. Louis.)

Highlights at NIU:
  • Everything in one building, the Holmes Student Center – dancing, dining, housing no walking for meals
  • Air-conditioning in the entire student center
  • Excellent huge ballroom for dancing with a balcony for relaxing and watching
  • Fine audio capabilities and a stage for the musicians
  • Lodging in beautiful University Hotel setting
  • Hotel rooms with private bath, fridge, microwave, coffee maker
  • Some hotel rooms can accommodate up to 4 people, and roll-aways are available
  • Meals catered
  • Location is more centrally located for regional groups
  • Alcohol is only allowed in hotel rooms or the “Hospitality Suite” (hence no more official “Happy Hour” gathering)
  • We have 70 hotel rooms available on site and will be giving preference for those enrolled full-time and sharing a room - great way to meet new friends! There will be additional housing available in dormitories, if the hotel fills up.

Look for registration materials including on-line registration
in early April.

We look forward to having you dance with us!
