Welcome to Camp Ballibay
Why we love it
Good to know
Camp Ballibay is a residential fine and performing arts summer camp located in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Since its inception in 1964, Ballibay has been an inclusive and supportive environment for young artists aged 8-18 for exploration and collaboration within their preferred artistic medium. We offer programming in theater arts, dance, rock music, instrumental and vocal music, visual arts, film and media, technical theater, radio, horseback riding, gardening, sports and swimming, and food education! With never more than 160 campers on campus at any time, our intimate community provides a safe and nurturing experience for all of our campers. Since 2011, we have been the #1 rated arts camp in North America, and we pride ourselves on being a safe and inclusive environment for every type of young artist. We are in-person for our 2021 season and are so looking forward to a summer surrounded by nature and friends after this long year. There are still spots available to register in most of our sessions, but we are filling up quickly. Head to our website for more information on registration and to give your young artists a summer of memories and a lifetime of creativity!
Cabins: cabins vary in size, with the youngest cabins having 6-10 campers and 2-3 adults, most cabins having 10-12 campers and 2 adults, and the oldest cabins having 15-16 teenagers and two adults. There is always an adult supervising the cabin when campers are present. The cabins have hot water and electricity, but are otherwise simple and rustic. Campers live off of shelves in the cabin; we collect and store their luggage. Cabin assignments are made by age.
