Thanks for Checking out Ballibay Camps. We hope to see you at Camp this Summer!
Camp Ballibay is a true haven for young people with a love for the arts, and a perfect choice for families seeking a safe, friendly, and creative arts camp for their kids to explore the visual arts, dance, theater, or rock music. We offer deep, engaging programs for young artists at all levels in a traditional summer arts camp setting. Young artists ages 8-18 come from all over North and South America, Europe, and Asia to spend 2-7 weeks on our pristine mountaintop campus in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Established in 1964, we have a long history as a diverse, tolerant, and safe camp for creative kids. Since 2011 we've been the #1-rated arts camp in North America.
What Parents Say About Camp Ballibay
"Our kids are second generation Ballibay campers. My siblings attended for many years and the tradition goes on strong with our children. Apart from the awesome offerings of the camp: the activities, the facilities, the counselors, etc., there is something special about the Ballibay experience that lasts a lifetime. Decades later, my brothers and sister are still close with friends from Ballibay, and often talk about experiences there that shaped who they are. The atmosphere is warm and the culture of the camp is one of inclusion, community, generosity and sharing. Our kids came home with their musical horizons broadened as listeners and they gained new confidence and new skills as performers. The flexibility of the way activities are structured also gave them opportunities to try out art forms they had never considered. We can't praise Ballibay highly enough and encourage anyone with kids who are creative or interested in exploring their creativity to sign up with confidence." - Scott Sinkler
"I went to Camp Ballibay when I was a kid and loved it. I met so many great people from all over the country who I have stayed in touch with. Talented, nice and down to earth described the kids and staff. When I had kids of my own that loved the arts I knew I wanted them to have an experience like I did are Camp Ballibay. I was even lucky enough to work there as an adult and I observed that other than updated tech stuff not much had changed. Beautiful campus, family owned and run, people who are passionate about the arts and take their job serious to give campers an experience and teaching them new things that they can take with them to improve upon what they already know. If you want a ritzy camp for a spoiled child, this might not be a good fit. If you want a camp for you creative kid who loves collaboration with other creatives than this is a good fit." -Victoria Pentecost

Camp Ballibay is located in the mountains of Northeastern, Pennsylvania. Only three hours from New York City.
Ballibay’s breathtaking campus and outstanding facilities are a perfect compliment to the great kids and amazing, talented staff we attract each summer. Situated on 174 mountaintop acres, we actively use about 100 acres, leaving a beautiful wooded buffer around us. We take great pride in keeping the grounds carefully manicured while still maintaining the atmosphere of a rustic, wooded traditional summer camp.
