Village Harmony

Oregon Adult Camp 2022 at Menucha Retreat – August 22 – 28 ($600 – $875)

Date: August 22-28, 2022
Venue: N/A
Leaders: To Be Determined, Sarina Partridge, Heidi Wilson
Price: $875 full price, $775 "top bunk" option, $600 commuter

Attendance at this camp is limited to to those who are fully Covid vaccinated.

Our normal Oregon camp location of St Benedict’s Lodge is unavailable to us this summer, so we will be holding the camp at Menucha Retreat.

The program will be led by three directors: Heidi Wilson, Sarina Partridge and a third director TBA.   

Sarina will bring new songs inspired by the times through which we are living, simple harmony songs that build connection. She will also teach several Yiddish songs from her own musical heritage.

Heidi Wilson will teach her own newly-composed songs: songs of change, joy, surrender, faith, and mystery, and songs to mark the seasons. She will also lead us in several traditional Swedish songs.

Menucha is an extraordinarily beautiful facility on the Columbia River Gorge east of Portland, Oregon.

Standard tuition is $875 for accommodations in shared triple or quadruple rooms.

Some of the rooms have bunk beds, and singers who don’t mind sleeping on a top bunk can knock $100 off their tuition cost.

Those desiring more private accommodations can book local B&B’s and enroll at the reduced $600 commuter price.

To Be Determined

Additional leader will be confirmed soon

Sarina Partridge

Sarina Partridge is a musician, song-leader and educator in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She feels most alive when learning, creating and sharing songs, and enjoys singing, teaching, and touring with a wide variety of music projects – Eastern European and Yiddish song, old-time music, community song-leading… and everything in between.  Sarina has worked as a classroom teacher for the past ten years, weaving music into the everyday work and joy of building and sustaining community – it works for grown ups, too! Sarina leads a community choir in her neighborhood in Minneapolis, and leads workshops  with choirs around the country. She has a passion for connecting people with their own creativity and with community, and uses singing to help folks develop a sense of wonder for this wild world around us. All of us have a right and a need to make music, stretch ourselves, grow, and play. Let’s sing!


Heidi Wilson

Heidi Wilson’s passion is to share songs in service to community and the wild world; songs that celebrate the seasons, bring groups together, offer thanks, muster courage, make room for healing and grieving, and those songs that send us on our journeys and welcome us back home. She is drawn to the potent and surprising journey of deep-listening and collaborative music making. Heidi has been leading community a cappella singing groups in Vermont for the last 14 years including work with the Summit School of Traditional Music and Culture, Village Harmony, Burlington Integrated Arts Academy, Unitarian Church of Montpelier, Interfaith Partners of St Johnsbury, and Sterling College. Some of Heidi’s recent musical influences include and trainings include Bobby McFerrin’s improvisational Circlesongs, Rhiannon’s Vocal River work, and Ysaye Barnwell’s Building A Vocal Community.
