Amplify Sleep Away + Day Camp is an award-winning creative arts summer camp for girls in Ojai’s beautiful Topatopa Mountains.

8 Creative Tracks For Campers 

Amplify Sleep Away + Day Camp for Girls Amplify Sleep Away + Day Camp for Girls  Amplify Sleep Away + Day Camp for Girls Amplify Sleep Away + Day Camp for GirlsCampers choose a specialty to focus on during each session of Amplify. Some campers sign up for a different track for each session they’re enrolled in and some stay with the same track for the whole season. While they serve a vast range of ages (exiting 3rd–12th graders), campers move throughout Amplify with their own age groups, including creative tracks, electives, trips, and more!

Campers can choose from the following 8 creative tracks:
  • Rock Band (drums, guitar, bass, vocals, or keys/piano)
  • DJ
  • Music Production + Sound Engineering
  • Photography
  • Music Video Making
  • Podcasting
  • Journalism
  • Skateboarding

*Not all creative tracks are offered every session, but you can catch ‘em all if you sign up for multiple sessions. Tracks are campers’ concentration for the session—even the whole summer if they want. Campers are highly encouraged to come for at least 2 sessions so they can experience as many different creative tracks, friendships, electives, and off-campus adventures as possible. Choose a different track each session or stick with one track for the season to become an unstoppable expert.

Summer Camp Is Not School

While there are track-specific “lessons,” Amplify is so not school. Imagine learning to play an instrument, writing an original song, jamming on stage, directing a real music video, creating a podcast, or producing your own sick beats! Doesn’t sound like school to us.

Amplify instructors and mentors aren’t just college students home for the summer, trying to make some easy spending money. Most staff are 25+ years old and have been professional musicians, producers, artists, tutors, teachers, and all-around passionate experts at their craft for 10+ years.

Campers spend a few hours most days in their track-specific lessons, with another several hours in awesome electives or camp-wide communities like pool time, sprinkler games, karaoke, zine making, color dust games, hiking, improv, and dozens more. There’s even a Friday night dance party and Saturday pool party every session for sleep away campers, planned by campers themselves!

At least one day every week is spent on field trips to Hurricane Harbor, Universal Studios, Magic Mountain, and local beaches. (Youngest campers (“Lights”) get their own special bonding day featuring low ropes course and many other fun team-building activities, instead of amusement parks. This is often the highlight of the whole session for them!)

Campers who sign up for at least 2 sleep away sessions also get treated to an overnight camping trip to Catalina Island, where they’ll get to go zip lining, jumping through the trees on an aerial adventure, and sea kayaking!

Find The Perfect Session

Amplify is offering 4 unique 2-week-long sleep away sessions, plus one Monday–Friday day camp session within session 4, giving us 8 weeks total throughout summer 2022. Their low staff-to-camper ratio of 1:6 ensures a level of instruction, engagement, and mentoring that makes the experience unforgettable, and there’s optional private lessons for campers who want a little extra time mastering their craft. Due to a gorgeous new remodeling and expansion, they can enroll double the number of youth they had last year. Registration will be open all season—bring your best friends with you!
