Finnish Folk Music Camp: July 15 to 17, 2014
Traditional Finnish music still permeates the lakes and forests of Michigan's Copper Country, where Finnish-American identity vibrantly lives on. From Saturday evening sauna to specialty comfort foods, folks carry on their Finnish traditions as part of everyday life. Arguably, none do it more significantly than those who play traditional Finnish music at festivals and weddings, in humble kitchens, on stylish patios, and even along the pristine shores of Lake Superior. Finlandia University's Finnish Council in America and the Finnish American Heritage Center are excited to arrange this annual Finnish traditional music camp opportunity.

Sightseeing and summer sports abound in the Copper Country. In addition, the 2014 Aura Jamboree in nearby Aura, Michigan, begins on July 18, and the annual Strawberry Festival in Chassell, Michigan, take place the weekend prior to the Music Camp.
