Residential spots are going fast! Register now to secure your place in the dorms.

The Conservatory of Music at Baldwin Wallace University has a long history of bringing school-age and adult learners to campus for focused music study through workshops, camps and training institutes.

Caring staff, a safe campus, outstanding music facilities, excellent food service, and comfortable residence halls combine to make each camper's experience a positive one. Campers have the option to commute daily to campus or live in real college dorms. All campers will attend rehearsals in Conservatory buildings. The BW student dining hall provides delicious, healthy meals; all meals are provided for residential campers, and lunch and dinner are provided for day campers.

We know that your children are precious, and BW summer program staff go the extra mile to watch over all campers. Certified music teachers and other adults supervise all rehearsals and activities. We have a nurse on call around the clock who supervises and dispenses all medications. Attendance is taken at all activities. Faculty and staff live in the residence halls and are responsible for supervision. Campus security personnel are always available and all dorms remain locked 24/7 with key card access only.

Afternoon activities may include swimming, outdoor activities, and game days. Evening activities may include a trip to Swings-N-Things, a movie night, or the counselor talent show. BW's summer music programs receive public support with local tax dollars from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture to preserve and enrich our region's artistic and cultural heritage.
