Arts Summer Camps for Kids, Tweens, and Teens Compared Side-by-side

A comparison of the programs, sessions, schedules, and tuition of the sister camps of Ballibay Camps, Inc.

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. Becasue 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 advatage of the programs offered by any of the other camps.
