Lark Camp 2020 Cancelled

Hold these dates for 2021: July 30 – August 7.

VISIT THE LARK CAMP CABARET CHANNEL ON YOUTUBE! You’ll see performances by Lark instructors and campers!

The Lark Traditional Arts (LTA) board of directors made the hard decision to cancel Lark Camp 2020. We know that even if we were able to hold camp, many folks – including instructors – would justifiably feel uncomfortable about coming. People will still be getting sick and some will come to camp not knowing they are asymptomatic carriers, there is a lack of medical infrastructure in Mendocino/Fort Bragg, and we can’t visualize socially distancing during workshops, or curtailing the evening dance events that we love. Frankly, we can’t imagine coming to camp and not being able to hug each other. 

Due to our cancellation:

  • LTA will refund all camper fees paid for Lark Camp 2020. If you’ve made payment, you will be hearing directly from our registrar. Note: We will refund your money by check – even if you paid by credit card.
  • We ask you to be patient – it may take us a few weeks to get your money back to you. If you are registered to work on a crew you will hear from your crew managers directly.

We are incredibly disappointed, and know you are too. Each time Lark Camp is over, we begin dreaming of the next one. This is an unprecedented time, and we need to take care of our people.

We are planning to hold Lark Camp in 2021, assuming we can do so safely. Please hold July 30 – August 7 on your calendar.

Here is a list of Lark Camp instructors who are able to offer private online instruction (not facilitated by Lark Camp).

Please keep watch for the newsletter. If you aren’t already on the mailing list, sign up for it here: You can also visit our official Facebook Page for updated information.

We’ll miss you! We hope you will remain healthy, and we really hope you’ll register to come next year.

Sincerely, the Lark Traditional Arts Board:

Will Wheeler, Celia Ramsay, Meghan Miller, Danese Cooper, Susan Walsh, & Danny Carnahan

As we continue to shelter-in-place, please visit your pals at Lark Camp by posting on the Facebook group page. Many of our instructors have lost income, and you can support them by looking for their on-line concerts, ask for virtual lessons, and make purchases of their music books and CDs.
