FDSA Mini Camps


About FDSA Mini Camps

In addition to our big, 3-day Camp held each year, FDSA students have begun to organize “Mini Camps.” These often involve 2 or more FDSA instructors presenting together over the course of a weekend. While not officially sponsored or organized by FDSA, we’ve listed those here so that FDSA students can easily find them and learn more about them!

If you have organized an FDSA Mini Camp, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
