A night of folk music and dance to help preserve folk music traditions in the Adirondacks this April 15th..

"There are times when, as artists, we feel as though we are exactly where we are meant to be. So many times that has been the case at Sagamore. For me, whether working with children and grandparents, women with cancer and chronic illness, or fellow musicians, I have felt that sacred connection. Sagamore is where my soul feels very much at home."

-Peggy Lynn

About Great Camp Sagamore:

Sagamore Institute of the Adirondacks, the non-profit steward of Great Camp Sagamore, a National Historic Landmark located in the Central Adirondack community of Raquette Lake, NY, is recruiting for paid seasonal internships for the 2017 season. Sagamore is a 27-building complex built by William West Durant from 1895-97. The camp is located on an otherwise undeveloped lake in the Blue Ridge Wilderness, a 40,000 area section of the Adirondack Forest Preserve, and was once the private estate of the Alfred Vanderbilt family. From 1900 through the 1940s, Sagamore was visited by the leading writers, artists, businessmen and political figures of the early 20th century. Durant's complex is considered one of the finest of the Adirondack "Great Camps" and is an architectural model of National Park Service rustic building design.
