Arts Summer Camps for Kids

Established in 1964, The Ballibay Camps share a beautiful 174-acre mountaintop campus in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The camps share the same residential and foodservice facilities, but offer different programs and daily schedules, somewhat like different colleges within a university. The total campus population of all camps combined never exceeds 200 people. Because the camps use overlapping areas of the campus and share many staff, it is typically easy for campers attending any one of the camps to take advantage of the programs offered by any of the other camps.

Camp Ballibay for the Fine & Performing Arts

and the Camptown Theater Workshop

Established in 1964, Camp Ballibay is an American Camp Association accredited summer camp offering exciting programs in Theater, Art, Music, Dance, Video, Radio & Rock-n-Roll for kids, tweens, and teens.

 

The Farm Arts Camp

Before the developments of Camp Ballibay's strong programs in the performing arts, in the mid-late 1960s and early 1970s, Ballibay's program emphasized the visual arts, horseback riding, and the outdoors. The Farm Arts Camp is a new camp of Ballibay Camps, Inc. that will be very close in activities and structure to the early days of Ballibay, with a stronger emphasis on the visual arts (painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, & ceramics) and traditional camp activities such as horseback riding, boating, outdoor cooking and camping, hiking, and nature study.

The Rock Farm

The Rock Farm is a summer sleep-away rock camp for kids ages 8-16 with experience playing guitar, drums, or electric bass guitar. We offer an intensive rock music program in a fun, friendly, and relaxed summer camp setting. We've been making rock music with kids for 25 years.

Endless Mountains Dance Camp

Endless Mountains Dance Camp is directed by long-time Ballibay camper, staffperson, and administrator Kristin A. Fieseler, Artistic Director of Annex Dance Company. EMDC developed out of three elements of Camp Ballibay's dance program: Traditional dance technique and performance, dance on camera, and training in "non-dance" movement styles such as Capoeira, Freerunning/Parkour, and Tai Chi Chuan.
