There’s no need to know the moves -- the beginner-friendly square dance follows the long-held tradition that every dance is taught on the spot. Weekend passes are a rock-bottom $50 and children 14 and under are free, with camping also available on site. Bring your camp chair, your guitar, banjo, fiddle or mandolin and join the fun.
