Lark Camp Children's Workshops

Kid Special

* If you are paying for a child 11 and under, you can receive a discount rate by teaching a daily children's workshop at camp. Workshops on music, dance, theater, crafts, nature, juggling, story telling, instrument making are all good themes. If your workshop requires materials, you must provide them. Your workshop should be 1-1/4 hours long and offered daily. This is a great way to save a bit of money and to share your creative energy with the younger folks at camp. Please call (707) 964-4826 and talk to Mickie or Beth if you have any questions.

Read this great article about the Lark Camp Kids Play with photos of the play being rehearsed.

Donate To Lark Camp

Lark Camp promotes worldwide understanding through music and dance.

Lark Camp provides an open forum for the exchange of creative ideas between musicians, singers, dancers and composers. The Lark Camp experience is enhanced by motivational instructors and inspired students, who also share their passions and skills with the rest of the participants.

Donate to Lark Camp one of two ways. This is your camp.

You can donate directly through the registration form and the funds will be used in one of the many areas that will help enhance the Lark Camp experience including teacher related expenses, special projects and just to help make ends meet. Donations can also be made by check, cash & credit card.

If you have extra Frequent Flyer miles that could become a ticket that would also be very helpful. Please email or call us at 707-397-5275.


Lark Camp identifies outstanding instructors some of which live a great distance from where Lark Camp is held. Funding is needed to bring instructors from large distances and other costs involving adding these people to the teaching staff.

The bus operates from 8:00 am to 3:00 am. The bus has been nicknamed Camp Four and has developed into an on-going portable party and session. Take a ride on "Camp 4" the Lark Camp shuttle.

Bicycling between camps is encouraged, bring bicycles.

Driving between camps is not permitted. If anyone has to make frequent trips to town they will be parked in an area that does not require driving through camp.

Parking, Carpooling
& Getting To Camp

To keep the number of cars to mimimum no cars will be allowed in a possible camping space. This means if you are not staying in your vehicle it must go to long term parking. Long term parking is in Camp Three, 1-1/4 miles from the center of Camp One and 1/2 mile from Camp Two; a shuttle bus runs from 8:00am-3:00am. We will not be able to make exceptions to the parking policy. Carpooling is encouraged. If you can offer or need a ride please use the Lark Camp Carpool Webpage to organize carpools.
