MUSIC & DANCE CAMP
Welcome to Westwind
The Salem Folklore Community will host its 33rd annual Westwind Weekend Music & Dance Camp May 3, 4, & 5, 2019 at beautiful Camp Westwind on the Oregon Coast.
Come join us for two nights and two days of music, dancing and community in an incomparably beautiful setting on the wild Oregon coast.
Westwind Weekend is an all-volunteer weekend where campers (that’s you) bring their music & dancing talents to create the magic. Expect two evenings of dance, including family dances, contra, Scandinavian, and swing. Expect a campers’ concert Saturday night, music jams all day and into the night (Irish, old-time, swing and more). And take plenty of time to walk on the beach, dig in the sand, and hike to the high meadow.
Camp Westwind is located just north of Lincoln City and just south of Cascade Head. The camp is accessed only by boat across the Salmon River. Timing for the crossings depends of the timing of high tides. Check the "Updates" section at top right for info on times of arrival and departure from camp.

Arrival and departure this year (2019). On Friday evening the tide will be low, so arrival mostly will be by walking in the camp road. On Sunday, a favorable tide will allow a leisurely afternoon departure by barge. Those who must leave early can walk out on the camp road (a very pleasant, flat walk). All luggage and gear will be transported by the camp truck.
