Our Middle School Camp coordinators Keith Ozsvath and Greg Scapillato live the mission every day, as middle school band directors and, themselves, parents. We know you are looking for a safe environment for your child, with exceptional teaching from distinguished faculty. You also are looking for value. The Music for All Summer Symposium provides lodging, meals, tuition, materials, teachers, and concerts for a reasonable cost that is far exceeded in value and impact.

* The SWAG Team members are the Music for All camp’s counselors, teaching assistants, and superheroes. They are selected by vigorous application process, undergo a background check, and carry forward the 35 year tradition of ensuring safe, positively life-changing experiences for campers.
