Created in 1969 by Maestro David Katz (founder of the Queens Symphony Orchestra and conducted the American Symphony at Carnegie hall for 15 years), Long Lake Camp For The Arts is an idyllic paradise set amongst the stunning natural splendor of the Adirondacks. Long Lake was uniquely created to let musicians flourish along side like minded children ages 10 to 16. Plus you can choose from Dance, Fine Arts, Music, Rock Bands, Circus, Film and fun sports and waterfront. Your schedule is 100% yours to create the best summer of your life.
We cherish the love of music, learning, performing and the growth of friendships from meeting like minded and spirited musicians from all over the world. We offer our campers private lessons in almost any instrument and they can join our many Orchestras, Jazz Bands, Ensembles and Rock Bands. Our musicians thrive by playing in our live Pit Orchestras for our 30 Broadway shows. All our bands perform regularly at camp and for our Music Festival at the end of each session. Long Lake is very special because in 3 weeks our Musicians not only rehearse but are rewarded by Long Lake's very supportive audiences.
