The Summer String Academy puts "camp" back into Orchestra Camp. Most music camps do not have outdoor nature activities. In addition to our world class orchestra education, each of our students will have opportunities to safely participate in water Olympics, archery, zip lines, the famous Lazy F climbing wall, fishing, creek floats on inner tubes, arts and crafts, challenge courses, and more! Check out the gallery section for pictures of some of our great activities.

Your child will enjoy the breathtaking view of the Eastern Cascade foothills. The lush green oasis of the Lazy F Camp and Retreat is nestled in the crisp golden scenery of Manastash Canyon. Daily visits from deer families add to the peaceful backdrop of trees, fields, ponds, and mountains. To add to the serenity, Manastash Creek lazily flows through the center of the camp.
