Our campers follow their dreams, try incredible new things, and gain lifelong friends and positive role models in a safe and supportive environment. Our very low staff-to-camper ratio of 1:6 ensures a level of instruction, engagement, and mentoring that makes the experience unforgettable.
Campers choose a specialty (we call ‘em TRACKS) to focus on during each session of Amplify. Some campers sign up for a different track for each session they’re enrolled in, and some stay with the same track for the whole season. There’s no wrong way to AMPLIFY YOUR VOICE.
No matter where you land, you’ll have about a million opportunities to dabble in lots of artistic areas and work alongside campers from other tracks. We love TEAMWORK and co-creation.
