Welcome back to Darlene Underwood, The Mean Lids,
Callers, Music Makers, and Dancers!

Darlene Underwood and The Mean Lids will keep us dancing happy all weekend!

Registration is Open Now through April 17!

**Registrations are due by April 17, so we can inform the Camp Cooks the final count for meals.**

Download the registration form here. Adults ages 31 and up can attend the entire weekend for $180, all inclusive for Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. This includes all meals starting with Saturday breakfast, going through to Sunday lunch, plus afternoon and evening snacks, and our Sunday afternoon ice cream social, a popular and yummy Trillium Twirl tradition. For those ages 15 to 30 full weekend cost is $115 each; Kids aged 6 to 14 full weekend cost is $50, and children under 6 are free. Note there are no children's programs available. Parents must supervise their children at all times.

Costs are the same whether dancers plan to camp on-site or stay in one of the dormitories.

Staff Assistant Positions: All applications for Staff Assistant Positions are due back by March 31. Staff Assistants pay $130 for the full weekend, all inclusive. Check the box on your Registration form to indicate your interest, and write your check or money order for $130. The Staff Assistant Coordinator will contact you by email with instructions for the application process. If you are ultimately not "hired" as a Staff Assistant, you will be expected to pay the additional $50, the full cost of the weekend. If you do not, your payment of $130 will be returned to you, and your registration will be considered "not complete".

A'la Carte Weekend Options: Though Trillium Twirl is at its heart a residential camp, we also have A'la Carte options available for those who cannot stay. Download the brochure for more details on options and costs. Unfortunately, this year we are unable to provide online registration and payment options. Please use your brochure to register, and send it with a check or money order made out to Michigan Dance Heritage for the amount of your registration.

Where is the Dance Located?

Clear Lake Camp, also called the Battle Creek Outdoor Education Center, is on M-37 about 16 miles north of Battle Creek. The 137 acres of fields and woods offer hiking, up-close nature, and canoeing on Clear Lake. Two bunkhouses provide sleeping rooms for men-only, women-only, and coed for couples, and separate showers for men and women. Tent and RV sites are available, but no water or electrical hookups. The main facility features two beautiful dance floors! **Please leave pets at home.**
