Fall Camp was founded in 2019 under the direction of an organizing committee consisting of Marc and Jan Rayman (directors), Gerda Benzeev, Sandy Helperin, Pauline Klak, and Marcella Lawson. Helpers consisted of Mindy Belli, Valerie Daley, Terry Gucwa, Leslie Halberg, Sandy Levy, Therese Mahoney, and Steve Waller.
Fall Camp (originally called Fall Folk Dance Camp) is held in honor of Beverly and Irwin Barr, who for over 30 years with their helpers, worked tirelessly to provide a wonderful folk dance camp every fall at Camp Hess Kramer. It "has the best of past camps plus some new things."
Fall Camp, supported by the Folk Dance Federation of California, South, Inc., is held at the Brandeis-Bardin Campus of the American Jewish University in Simi Valley, California.
