Programs in music, theater, dance, visual arts, photography, video, robotics, recording arts, creative writing, sports and swim, along with traditional camp activities like campfires, dances, and carnivals make for an unforgettable summer.

Bach to Rock
226 Sugartown Road, Wayne PA 19087 – Devon Square Shopping Center, Rt. 30

B2R's unique approach means students with NO previous musical training can be rocking out or singing in a group at camp. Rock Band and Glee Club are coordinated by age (6 or older), grade and musical interests & ability. For younger kids, we offer a Rock City World Tour (4 - 5) that introduces diverse instruments like the African Hand-Drums and Australian Didgeridoos for kids to explore. Young kids will love spending time in this global musical vacation. There's also a Recording Arts camp (10 or older) where students can work ‘hands on' in a small class on Pro Tools and our Studio Live digital mixer to learn studio recording.
