With a view to keeping us all safe, we continue to monitor the Covid-19 situation and do so in conjunction with N-Sid-Sen. At this point, we are requiring proof of vaccination, masking while dancing and in other large group situations, and also testing. If any of these protocols change, we will post it on this web page, and if it’s after registration has opened, we will notify those who are registered of any change.

On the scenic shores of Coeur d’Alene Lake in northern Idaho, lies the ideal location for the Lady of the Lake Music and Dance Camp. Come join us at Camp N-Sid-Sen, an idyllic 257 acres of tall pine and fir forest. There is nearly a mile of lake shore, hiking trails, boats and beach. The camp has a beautiful dance hall and dance pavilion, multiple workshop sites, clean, tidy cabins, delicious food and more.
Housing and Camping
Twelve cedar cabins sleep 4 to 8 people each (six are “cottages” and six are “alpine” style). All have bunk beds with mattresses provided. Camping is available for those who prefer. Please let us know ahead of time because cabin assignments are prearranged.
