We had tried everything to lift her self-esteem & spirit -- then she found the art barn at Ballibay -- where she spent hours... made more friends & strengthened in spirit & soul. What more can parents ask for in a summer experience?

There is a casual, relaxed manner about our art studios, packed with materials, and run by an experienced, creative staff. We have a very special way of looking at art; we see children's art as an individual language that is separated from adult technique. We teach and assist campers in technique, but campers' artwork is always a process of individual expression.
There may be class-like situations in the studios, but the majority of the campers are engaged in individual or small-group independent work. Instructors are on hand helping out where needed and observing campers' activity & progress.
Campers are encouraged to be active in more than one project at once, so that as they exhaust one, they can put it away and go on to another area of interest; looking at what another camper is doing, or at one of the constantly changing displays or demonstrations going on.
Suzanne Goldenberg directs all the activity of our fine art camp. Our staff includes art teachers and college undergraduates and graduate students who are aspiring to careers involving art, children and teaching.Summer Art Camp: Ballibay: a Fine & Performing Arts Camp home page • contact us • about us • disclaimer • website credits • find us on Facebook Copyright © 2010 Ballibay Camps, Inc. all rights reserved One Ballibay Road • Camptown, PA 18815 • USA • 570 746 3223
