Camp Letts (Edgewater,MD)

FSGW is excited to announce its 36th annual Chesapeake Dance Weekend. This springtime getaway is one of FSGW’s premier events during the calendar year. Superb calling and fantastic musicianship draw campers from across the east coast. With dance workshops during the day and evening dances after dinner, the all-inclusive weekend offers heated cabins, full meals, and plenty of camaraderie. This year’s program features contras, squares, and honky-tonk dancing with headliners Chameleon (Alexander Mitchell, Dave Wiesler, Paul Oorts), Jesse Milnes & Emily Miller (with Joe Dejarnette), and Rachel Eddy & the Rock Farmers (Jonathan Vocke & Jay White). Calling will be led by crowd favorites Will Mentor and Janine Smith, while Ed Fizdale and Su Peck will guide us for all things honky-tonk. Registration is now open, so sign up early for that FSGW member-only discount. Info/registration:

In mid-April, it's all waiting here for you at Camp Letts, on the beautiful shores of the Chesapeake Bay, about an hour from the heart of Washington, DC.
