The Experience of a Lifetime!
Welcome to Athena!
Founded in 2008, the Athena Music and Leadership Camp is the first to provide middle and high school-aged young ladies a five-day, music camp experience while emphasizing leadership and team-building skills. Named for the Greek goddess of the arts and wisdom, Athena strengthens musical excellence through three main points of emphasis: performance fundamentals, theoretical understanding, and music appreciation. Our leadership and empowerment workshops focus on confidence building, communication skills and self-awareness.
The health, safety, and well-being of our Athena Music and Leadership Camp team, guest artists, campers, and community are always at the forefront of all decisions. It is for this reason that, in lieu of our residential and commuter camps, we will offer the Athena Virtual Academy (AVA) this summer on June 22-25, 2020. As the first all-girls band and orchestra camp of its kind, we understand the positive impact that participation in the Athena Camp has on young ladies in school bands and orchestras throughout the country. We also understand how musicians and families have been impacted during the past few months. For these reasons, it is our belief that providing a way for young ladies to virtually connect and learn this summer is of the utmost importance. We do not take lightly the cancellation of our 2020 residential and commuter camps as our goal is always to “Empower Young Women Through Music.” We hope you will choose to join us at AVA this summer!
