June Camp, a mainstay of the Midwest international folk-dance community, is back for its 61st year! After last year's success, the camp will return this spring to the splendid facilities of Northern Illinois University, in DeKalb, IL.

That's 60 miles west of Chicago, 100 miles south of Madison, 90 miles from Milwaukee, and 280 miles from St. Louis.

Accommodations at NIU:
  • Location is more centrally located for regional groups
  • All resources are elevator-accessible in one building: workshops, meals, parties, and housing
  • Air-conditioning throughout the entire student center
  • Huge ballroom for dancing with a balcony for relaxing and watching
  • Fine audio capabilities and a stage for the band
  • Lodging in beautiful University Hotel setting
  • Hotel rooms include private bath, fridge, microwave, and coffee maker
  • Some hotel rooms can accommodate up to 4 people, and roll-aways are available upon request
  • We have 70 hotel rooms available on site and will be giving preference for those enrolled full-time and sharing a room - great way to meet new friends! There will be additional housing available in off-campus motels, if the university hotel fills up
  • All meals are catered
  • Alcohol is only allowed in hotel rooms (hence no more official “Happy Hour” gathering)

We look forward to having you dance with us!
