This camp is for kids who love to sing! Campers will learn folk songs from around the world, including Appalachian repertoire from Kentucky and its neighboring states. Campers will experience music-making through improvisation, songwriting, musical games, movement/dancing, listening, and singing. We will explore many musical concepts, including rounds, a capella, chants, songwriting, harmony singing, small and large ensemble singing, improvisation, and call and response. The campers will experience a mix of Kentucky play party songs, instrumental play, mindfulness, movement, free play, and crafting each day.

On Friday afternoon, campers will share what they’ve learned with their caregivers at our camper showcase!

Camp FAQ's

Camp Times & Location

All Louisville Folk School camps occur in Louisville, Kentucky, at Waldorf School of Louisville (3110 Rock Creek Dr, Louisville, KY 40207).

Pick Up & Drop Off

This is a closed campus camp. We require that you sign your child in & out daily with a staff member. Drop-off is rolling, so if your camper needs extra sleep one day, they won’t miss crucial activities. We do not provide beforecare outside of the drop-off time. 


Regular camp pickup is by 3 pm. For an additional $50, you can sign your camper up for aftercare. We offer aftercare for those caregivers who need to pick up their campers between 3 and 5 pm Monday through Thursday. The students will perform in a final showcase on Friday at 3 pm, so all campers must be picked up by 4 pm that day.


Please pack two snacks for your student daily. Snack time occurs twice daily, once in the morning and once in the afternoon.

All campers should also pack a bag lunch every day of camp and will eat lunch around noon. 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.

  • sunscreen
  • lunch
  • snack(s)
  • reusable water bottle

Final Performance

The campers will perform in a showcase on the last day of camp (Friday). Final pick-up will happen immediately following the concert. This showcase concert will take place outdoors, weather permitting.
