**********************************************

What is Contra dancing?
According to AACTMAD, “Contra dance is a folk dance made up of long lines of couples. It has mixed origins from English country dance, Scottish country dance, and French dance styles in the 17th century.” You’re sure to love this community dance style and beginners of all ages are welcome! Watch this dance in action here:  AACTMAD Contra – Maeve Devlin Calling

What is an ‘Awe Walk’?
Psychology Today describes Awe Walks as “a stroll in which you intentionally shift your attention outward instead of inward.”  Awe promotes the idea of a healthy proportion between yourself and the bigger picture world around you. Studies show that these easy and free walks are beneficial for not only our physical health, but most importantly our mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

Seating:
Limited seating provided, feel free to bring your favorite camp chair or picnic blanket!
