Received from the June Camp Committee:
The June Camp website is up to date with details about this year's camp, which takes place from Thursday to Sunday, June 1 to 4. This year is a very special one:  we're celebrating the 60th year of June Camp. And we're also at a new location - Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, IL. Michael Ginsburg is coming from New York City to teach us Balkan dances, and Tom, Ralph and Patrick of the Pinewoods Band are returning for great live music every evening.
