Make your summer POP!
June 22nd-July 31st, 2020
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. Our summer music camp is located at Temple’s Boyer College of Music and Dance, a musician-friendly space that also provides our campers with the experience of being on a university campus.
A central tenet of POP’s programming is that students perform early and often for their peers, the community, and in formal concerts for family and friends: During the 2019 Summer POP, our students performed for the community on 17 occasions!

“Here is what I love about POP summer camp: it is well organized, it is enriching, it is not babysitting. The kids did and learned a lot…and I love that the camp is racially and ethnically diverse in a way that most of the really enriching ARE NOT. I loved seeing so many Asian, Black and Brown kids play instruments, sing and have a great time, and this camp is affordable in a way that many are not.”
