Board Member Recognition
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our Board members over the past 25 years, giving special recognition to the first Board. In September 1994, after word that Maine Folk Dance Camp was closing, George Fogg convened a group of committed campers and teachers. They created the Mainewoods Dance Camp Board, became a 501(c)(3), and with the help of many others, found a new camp location and put on seven week-long sessions plus a Labor Day Weekend camp in the summer of 1995! All this in less than one year—amazing!

The First Mainewoods Dance Camp Board:
Ping Chun, Nelda Drury, Tove Finlay, George Fogg, Max Kahn, Ellen Mandigo, Rae Nemovicher, Marie Wendt, Juanita Wetherell, Patricia Williams.
