In past messages we’ve highlighted the classes, instructors, music and dance parties, but there is so much more! Beantown has a great social atmosphere, with most campers living and eating together on campus. The dining hall has been newly transformed with a wide variety of seating nooks, plus the food is excellent! The BBQ on Monday night is at the Misselwood Tent down by the beach, followed by volleyball, frisbee, walks on the shore, maybe some jamming, or just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful setting. Each night Beantown Cafe is open, directly adjacent to the main dance floor.

Beantown Camp is coming up before you know it! We’ve highlighted the incredible teaching staff and vast array of classes and thought we’d turn to the music!

Four nights of live music will be starting off Friday with the Cangelosi Cards from NYC. We’ve been fortunate to have them in Boston and Providence, but this will be their first Beantown appearance! Their specialty is early American Jazz and will be sure to get everyone in the camp groove.
