Are You Ready for Harp Camp?
You are, if...
- You are between the ages of 13 and 20 years old and you play lever or pedal harp.
- You want to have fun while becoming a better harpist.
- You want to learn how to practice so it doesn't feel boring or hard.
- You want to make a lot of progress in a short time.
- You want to make harp friends forever.
Harp + Music = FRIENDS
That's what Harp in the Mountains Summer Festival is about.
...we play the harp.
Of course! But what makes Harp in the Mountains special is that all of our playing and practice and learning is done TOGETHER - no closing yourself in a practice room. You practice by yourself all year. Summer is time to enjoy making music with harp friends!
Music isn't just about learning notes and technique. We take advantage of our time at camp to explore, to experiment, to create music together.
...we have fun!
Spending time with friends, whether it's at the harp, around the campfire or in the pool, is the best way to enjoy summertime. And if we get a little silly sometimes, that's ok too!
It May Be Camp, But We Aren't Roughing It!
Harp in the Mountains is held on the grounds of Krislund Camp and Conference Center, located in beautiful Central Pennsylvania only 23 miles from Penn State and State College, PA. Camp is easily accessible from Interstate 80 and US Route 322. It is approximately 3 and 1/2 hours driving time from Philadelphia or New York City or Washington. D.C. The local airport is University Park (SCE).
Resurrection Lodge is where we practice and work together, eat and sleep. It is fully air-conditioned, perfectly climate controlled for harps and harpists. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped.
THE BUNK ROOMS
The lodge has two bunk rooms for students and a separate room for the instructors. Each bunk room has comfortable bunks and large bathrooms. The lodge is fully accessible and ADA compliant.
Director and Instructor
"Teaching is one of the most important aspects of my harp life. I have been privileged to guide and encourage many young harpists on their paths. And to see them enjoy making music and having fun with other students that share their interest is extremely rewarding."
Candace Lark Masucci
"I'm a happily married harpist living in Montgomery County Pa. with our dog Benjamin. I love working with my former harp teacher, Anne Sullivan, especially at harp camp. I look forward to getting to know you."
