Ballibay is an arts summer camp for boys and girls ages 6 through 16. We offer a wide range of non-competitive fine and performing arts activities in a fun, friendly traditional setting.
We are located on an exquisitely beautiful 200-acre mountaintop campus in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Our sessions range from 2 to 7 weeks in length. Ballibay was established in 1964, and is American Camping Association accredited.
Ballibay offers exciting programs in theater, the visual arts, music, dance, video, radio, and rock-n-roll music. We have an excellent horseback riding program, swimming instruction, and daily sports and movement activities including Capoeira, Tai Chi Chuan, and Frerunning/ Parkour.
We operate four sister camps, and most staff will work with children from multiple camps.
A key to the success of any camping season is staff. We spend a great deal of time screening and selecting our staff before every summer, and we have been fortunate to have many talented counselors and teachers remain with us season after season.
Our staff members are predominantly educators and university students from the United States, although we also have a strong international component to our staff.
Our staff members come to us with outstanding credentials: professional experience, a background in teaching, and/or exceptional skills in their specialties. Most of all, we seek good, caring people who are interested in the well-being and growth of children.
We look for people who, knowing something of the competitive nature of the adult world, are excited to put those concerns aside for a summer and focus on "the journey" in a noncompetitive, fun, friendly environment.
