Summer 2024 At Besant Hill School

Besant Hill campus has exciting things happening this summer!

We are proud to continue hosting the Ojai Music Festival and Amplify Sleepaway Camp (formerly Girls Rock SB) on our campus with amazing programs and opportunities for everyone.

Ojai Music Festival

The Ojai Music Festival represents an ideal of adventurous, open-minded and open-hearted programming in the most beautiful and welcoming of settings, with audiences and artists to match its aspirations. As its 75th anniversary approaches, the Festival remains a hallmark for groundbreaking musical experiences with a narrative thread guided by a different music director. These annual directors are more than conductors, composers, soloists, or musicians. They are musical thinkers who approach their craft with creativity and responsibility to the present day.

Create lifelong friendships this summer!

Hosted in Southern California, just 90 minutes northwest of Los Angeles, Amplify is truly one-of-a-kind. Campers choose a creative track to focus on throughout the session, then they also choose from over 50 weekly electives and other rad activities for an unforgettable summer.

We have a blast on overnight campouts, beach days, field days, and more! We also hold super fun camp-wide events, like guest performances, dance parties, pool parties, and of course our big final showcase! Amplify campers follow their dreams, try incredible new things, and gain lifelong friends and positive role models in a safe, supportive environment.
