Danebod Folk Camp:
August 2- August 8, 2020 CANCELED!

Check out the “virtual  camp options” 

We hope everyone is safe and well as the COVID-19 situation continues to escalate.

Virtual Camp:

We are working on our August Camp Singalong, but we need YOU! To make the singalong a success and “evergreen” we are including prerecorded songs. And, we need time to edit. Please send us a video of you and your Coronavirus Compatriots singing “Let Us Sing Together” out of the World Of Song by next Wednesday, July 22! You can record using any device, just please record in landscape mode.

Thank you to those of you who have already uploaded your video to Dropbox. In addition, if you have a favorite song you’d like to “lead,” please let us know, by emailing Karri, so we can add you to the line up.

On behalf of Rita, Bryan, Sonja and Matt, Thank you!

Karri Brady

P.S. Don’t forget, if you’d like a wood project from Erik click here


Hey campers, it’s Erik.

I want to let you know that any camper who would like a woodworking project sent their way can use this form (https://forms.gle/4hWkCkfEk9PhKnnWA) to request a Danebod Folk Camp Woodworking Care Package.

You’ll receive a roughed-out woodworking project, two sandpaper sticks (grits 80 and 120), a small pile of loose sandpaper (grits 150, 220, 320, 400 and 600) and a reminder sheet telling “what to look for” at each stage.

There is no charge for the care package. I ask that you limit your requests to one Care Package per camper. So, five per family of five would be fine.

I can’t guarantee you a specific project shape, but if you tell me your top three on the form, I’ll try to make sure you get one of them.

If you order by Sunday July 19, I think I’ll be able to have your package delivered by camp week, but, again, no guarantees! I’ll send them in the order I receive the requests.

I’ll close the form as soon as I hit the limits of my available projects, sandpaper sticks, time, or mailing money, whichever comes first. I’ll be closing the form no later than July 26 in any case.


P.S. Do you want to be a cosponsor of this project? How about: contribute a few bucks to the “mailing money fund” and I’ll send out an email telling them that you are a cosponsor! … Unless you are the anonymous type, of course … You can reach me at 612.615.6178 if you want to talk this idea over.
P.P.S. And, send your favorite dances to Ilene, Emily and Mark here.


Hey Danebodians!
We have been working on some virtual DANCING plans for camp! 💃🏼🕺🏻……but we need your help!
We know you want to dance…so please either comment on our Danebod Facebook page or message me your favorite dances that you’d like to be able to do from home.
Do NOT worry about the name of the dance (I still don’t even know many of the names). Just a description of the dance would help us make sure your favorites are included! (For example: slide and slide and slide and stomp)
We can’t wait to dance with you again! ~\
