Camp Times & Location
All Louisville Folk School camps take place in Louisville, Kentucky at the historic Peterson Dumesnil House, 301 S Peterson Ave, Louisville, KY 40206.
Pick Up & Drop Off
This is a closed campus camp. We require that you sign your child in & out at the check-in table everyday with a staff member. Drop off is rolling, so if your camper needs a little extra sleep one day, they won’t miss crucial activities. We do not provide before care or after care outside of the rolling drop off and pick up times.
For the full day camps, students may be picked up from camp starting at 3pm and as late as 3:30pm. During the 3-3:30pm timeframe students will have the option to participate in outdoor games, individual practice time, group jams, and art activities.
For the half day camp (Hogfiddles & Wingdings), students may be picked up from camp starting at 12:30pm and as late as 1pm. During the 12:15-1pm timeframe, students will have the option to participate in outdoor games, individual practice time, group jams, and art activities.
For the full day camps, please pack two snacks for your student each day. Snack time occurs twice each day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon.
For the half day camp, please pack one snack for your student each day.
All campers should pack a bag lunch every day of camp, and will eat lunch around 12:00 pm. Keep in mind campers won’t have access to a microwave, so pack ready to eat foods and utensils if needed. There is no refrigeration available.
What to Bring
Campers will be outside for parts of the day, weather permitting. Please apply sunscreen in the morning and pack extra for them to apply as needed.

We will refund 80% of the camp fee upon receipt of a written cancellation. There will be no refunds for cancellations made less than 4 weeks prior to the camp date.
