"Scottish dancing and music beneath the tall pines of Plymouth, Massachusetts!"

Pinewoods is a traditional dance and music camp located in a beautiful 25-acre pine and beech forest between Long Pond and Round Pond in historical Plymouth, Massachusetts. There are four large dance pavilions, rustic cabins and houses, two clear-water lakes for swimming and boating, an open-sided Dining Hall with beautiful views over the water, and a camp house for various gatherings. Scottish Dance events take place year round with special week-long events held in the summer. This tartan was designed by Joel LaMarre, of the Salem Class, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Scottish dancing at Pinewoods: 1953 to 2003.
