Our Camp Vision

We don’t want your child to spend three hours a day just staring at a screen! This summer’s “Camp Virtual Virtuoso” will feature ways to find less stress and more movement through our “virtual field trips”!
Early camp registrants from the Upper Darby Township community will have the opportunity to borrow a MusicMan ukulele or guitar for the 4-week camp period so they can strum away under a tree after learning some new tunes! (See our registration form for more details.)
We still want to have our Camper Challenges &  MusicMan Show Time performances — so this year we will be having “Munchies n’ Music” on Fridays at 11 am for Campers, their families and friends! All you have to do is share a private link so we can all munch and make music together!
Our staff is working hard to bring you the best digital music making experiences with our usual MusicMan memories! We look forward to keeping your child immersed in creativity and contentment in this challenging times!
