About Our Summer Camps

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 live in dorms on campus and attend rehearsals in Conservatory buildings. The BW student dining hall provides delicious, healthy meals; lunch and dinner are provided for day campers in addition to all meals for residential 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, and nursing staff 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, outdoors activities and game days. Evening activities may include trips to Swings-n-Things Family Fun Park, a dance night with DJ, movie night and 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.

For the summer of 2019, there are two sessions of Music Theatre Camp, based on age. They are:

  • June 15 - 20, 2019 - Grades 4 - 6
  • June 23 - 28, 2019 - Grades 7 - 9


We make every effort to keep camp as affordable as possible. Campers may attend as either residents or commuters, and most expenses are covered.

  • Resident - $565 fee covers all room and board (three meals per day plus snacks), admission fees and activities supplies.
  • Commuter - $480 fee covers lunch, dinner and snacks each day plus admission fees and activities supplies.

Fees include a non-refundable deposit of $115 that must accompany the application for registration to be complete for camp.

Campers do not need a lot of spending cash. Since admission fees are covered, the only expenses are related to buying items from the BW Bookstore and spending money at Swings-N-Things for games or vending machines. Most students will spend less than $25 during the week.
