Little Middle

We’ve all been waiting for this day to come…
Little Middle Folk School Applications are now available on our website!

This summer, Little Middle Folk School is June 16-22. Every summer the Folk School opens its doors to young folks age 7-17 for Little/Middle Folk School, an opportunity for youths to discover Appalachian culture and to take part in hands-on programs in dozens of arts and crafts.  “Littles” are rising second-graders to rising sixth-graders, and “Middles” are rising seventh-graders to rising twelfth-graders. Be sure to register your child early, as classes are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
