Lawrence Bellis


Bellis Music Camp was founded in 1957 by music educator, Lawrence Bellis. Its purpose is to serve young musicians by creating an atmosphere where musical and social skills can be combined to bring out the best in each young person. This week-long, sleep-away summer camp is located in the San Gabriel Mountains, serving middle school aged music students throughout Southern California. Campers participate in a variety of ensembles, theory classes, and recreational activities. The week culminates in a concert for our campers' friends and family.
