Maryland Opera's Summer Camp is an exciting and significant opportunity for talented high school age singers and is completely free of charge to those selected. 


This program was first implemented in the summer of 2010 and is highly successful in promoting students’ awareness of opera and the vocal and theatrical arts. Our graduates have gone on to major educational institutions and careers. 


Campers receive daily classes in movement/dance, acting/improvisation, and chorus/vocal techniques, in addition to twice weekly yoga sessions.  Visiting artists and professionals give classes on all aspects of opera and singing.  

We want to thank you immensely for your incredible camp. You and your team did an amazing job with the kids, and the joy that each of them presented was palpable.
