Camp Ballibay for the Fine and Performing Arts

Located on a beautiful mountaintop campus in Northeastern PA, Camp Ballibay is an arts summer camp offering a wide range of non-competitive fine and performing arts activities. We offer exciting programs in theater, the visual arts, music, dance, video, radio, and rock music. We have an excellent horseback riding program, swimming instruction, and daily sports activities. Camp meals emphasize health, seasonality, whole local ingredients and sustainability. An on-site garden provides some produce and opportunities for camper participation. Our program is completely individual choice: campers can focus on a single activity all day, pick several to focus on, or try a little of everything!

The summer ends with a special two-week theater intensive for beginning and intermediate performers: Camptown Theater Workshop. The structured theater intensive program includes includes seminar-style classes in many aspects of theatre craft, a very focused scene workshop in which each camper will participate in several Shakespeare and musical theatre scenes (performed at the end of the two weeks), and a campers/staff full-camp chorus which rehearses every evening. Participation in staged readings and one-act play productions are available for campers wanting even more theatre. Campers also have two hours of elective time per day in which all of our major program areas are available.
