What is it?
EDC Weekend June 9-11, 2006
What is Earth Drum Council Weekend?
|EDC Weekend is an opportunity for anyone who loves to drum and dance to get together
and learn, share, work and play, express ourselves, and celebrate in community. All skill
levels are welcome; EDC Weekend is a great place to come if youve never touched a
drum before but have always wanted to, while experienced drummers will find a great place
to let loose. Every year a mix of old-timers and newcomers gather together around the
fire. What we all have in common is that we have been touched by the spirit of the drum
and its power to draw us together.
Do I need a drum to
come? What type?
Can I bring my children?
Accommodations are in comfortable Bear Rock lodge (shared rooms with bunk beds), or in your tent or vehicle. Hot showers are available. There is a beautiful lake for swimming and boating, weather permitting. (If you have lifeguard certification, please call us about a reduced registration fee in exchange for serving as a lifeguard for a few hours during the Weekend.) The Camp is right on the Appalachian Trail, with gorgeous views just a few minutes hike away.
What about food?
How do I get there?
Can I bring crafts to sell?
What if I cant afford to come?
We dont offer work exchange, because it doesnt work well for us or for you. Our experience is that when you come to the Weekend you will want to participate in all the activities. We also dont want to create a class barrier where those with less money dont get to participate fully because theyre working during workshop times. Instead, we hire staff for key jobs, and ask everyone to contribute service to the community in the kitchen or with the children.
