POP Summer Music Camp

Make your summer POP!
Play on Philly’s Summer Music Camp is held each summer for students in rising grades 1-12.

Summers at Play On Philly are an opportunity for musical and social-emotional growth through ensemble playing and intensive group lessons.  Students also devote part of their day to other forms of creativity and expression including dance, physical fitness, and art. Year-round POP students, as well as young musicians across Philadelphia are eligible to join.
