Texas Camp

Texas Camp, held each Thanksgiving weekend, is one of the longest-running and best-loved international folk dance camps in the U.S. The setting is Greene Family Camp, a modern facility in the scenic hill-country of Central Texas. Texas Camp offers a unique opportunity to join in a celebration of music and dance from all over the world in an informal and supportive atmosphere.

In addition to dance instruction — provided by world-class instructors each year — we offer singing classes, folklore presentations, hearty ethnic cuisine, a host of special-interest dance sessions, and incredible evening parties with live and recorded music. Musicians are always welcome at Texas Camp, and are encouraged to join our friendly camp band to perform at parties each evening.

We hope you will join us for a wonderful holiday experience full of dancing, feasting, fellowship, music and fun.

Changes for COVID

This year’s COVID protocols require all campers to be fully vaccinated. Sadly, this means that we must suspend the Kids’ Club (Family Support) program until children can be safely vaccinated.
