Our Youth Programs

This little one is having big fun making a walking stick
Little Middle Folk School
Every summer the Folk School opens its doors to young folks ages 7-17 for Little/Middle Folk School. Scheduled for June 18-24, 2017, this fun week provides an opportunity for youths to discover Appalachian culture and to take part in hands-on programs in dozens of arts and crafts.

Participants are divided into two groups. "Littles" are rising second-graders to rising sixth-graders, and "Middles" are rising seventh-graders to rising twelfth-graders.

Little/Middle features nearly 30 youth classes. Be sure to register early, as these are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Little/Middle is full for 2017.

Intergenerational Week

Checkout the complete listings of Intergenerational classes here.

This week is designed to provide youths, ages 12 to 17, the opportunity to take classes side-by-side with a parent, grandparent, or other relative or guardian. We hope your family will join us for this memorable experience.
