 The Summer String Academy puts "camp" back into Orchestra Camp. Most music camps do not have outdoor nature activities. In addition to our world class orchestra education, each of our students will have opportunities to safely participate in water Olympics, archery, zip lines, the famous Lazy F climbing wall, fishing, creek floats on inner tubes, arts and crafts, challenge courses, and more! Check out the gallery section for pictures of some of our great activities.
