13th Annual East Coast Camp Photo DVD – 2013

By Kef Times Staff, Spring 2014

n&n_ISphotos_cdThis is Margaret Loomis’ 13th year of putting together a large collection of digital photos from East Coast Balkan camp as a fundraiser for EEFC.

The 2013 Iroquois Springs camp was another amazing week, full of fantastic music, dancing, classes, parties, food, kafanas and friends. These photos will bring back memories if you were at camp, or give you a very good idea of the week if you weren't there. The photos make a great slideshow—enjoy the DVD yourself, or use it to convince your friends to come to camp! The collection is a lot of fun, and it also makes a nice gift. “I can pretty much guarantee you that there are a lot more camp photos in this collection than you took on your phone,” Margaret says.

The 2013 DVD contains 1,072 photos, including:

  •   evening parties and kafanas
  •   music and dance classes in action
  •   group sings
  •   Zlatne Uste’s 30-year celebration on Monday night
  •   auction on Tuesday night
  •   classes performing at Friday’s student concert
  •   Friday afternoon soccer game
  •   candid and semi-candid shots throughout the week
  •   lots of kids at camp
  •   scenic views of Iroquois Springs
  •   many spontaneous moments

The DVD is available for $30 plus $2 shipping/handling in the U.S. Please make checks payable to Margaret Loomis and send to Margaret Loomis, 10206 Day Ave., Silver Spring, MD 20910. Phone 301/565-0539; or email for more information. All proceeds go to EEFC. (Photo collections from most past years are also still available.)
