“My daughter has been attending Amplify since she was in 4th grade and is now joining the team as staff at 19. Her three siblings are following in her footsteps and I honestly don’t think our family would be the same without this special community. Whether you are into music or photography / film making – your kid will flourish here. No experience necessary either! The amazing staff meet your kiddo right where they are at. Raising four girls, Amplify is always the first thing I recommend!”
“This is a life changing summer camp!! The camp shows girls how to really support each other and removes the element of competition. The result: campers creating beyond incredible creative projects while making life long friendships and feeling genuinely proud of both their own accomplishments and their peers”
“My daughter has attended both Berklee Summer Immersion and Idywild Arts Summer Camp and Amplify blew both of them out of the water. She came home with more technical skills than either program while being more inspired and happy than I have ever seen her. 1000 % worth it”
“My daughter had an amazing week at Amplify Sleep Away Camp these past four weeks in Ojai. Wrote a song with 4 other girls and performed for the parents this morning. She had a blast! We’ll be back next year.”
“My daughter attended last year. It was her first time ever being away from home. She was so scared, but excited. I could not ask for a better camp for my daughter to attend.“
“My daughter just played me the song she wrote last week at Amplify. It made me cry it was so beautiful. This camp and these counselors opened a door to her creativity that was closed. What a wonderful gift. I highly recommend this camp for girls who need a moment in a nurturing environment to unleash their creative potential. I’m feeling filled with gratitude right now!”
“Amplify has been one of the best experiences of my life… Camp has taught me how to create art that makes me happy and creates an impact. I can’t wait to be part of the staff.”
“What an incredible two weeks for my daughter! She came home more confident than I have ever seen her. The staff is awesome, they totally rock. We’re so in.”
“i’ve been coming for 3 years and have learned how to express myself through music, write songs, and talk about how i feel inside… I’ve learned so much”
Our only pick up and drop off locations are Beverly Hills High School and LAX.
Please contact a director when you have decided to purchase this type of ticket to ensure we can accommodate your request. Unaccompanied minor tickets require one of our staff to provide their information for your airline ahead of time in order to go through security and meet your camper at the gate on arrival, and remain with them until their flight departs.
Campers departing with an unaccompanied minor ticket must have a flight leaving LAX between 2-5PM. We do not have staff who are able to remain with your camper beyond 5PM.
Guardians are responsible for making reservations and ticket purchases for all unaccompanied minor tickets. Any and all fees for unaccompanied minor services must be paid by the parent/guardian at the time of booking.
With most airlines, kids who are old enough to attend Amplify are permitted to fly alone. This this varies from airline to airline. Please contact the airline regarding their regulations.
Prior to their campers boarding their flight, parents/guardians will be provided with our staff’s contact info so they can always check in on pick-up status, etc. We encourage you to share this number with your campers so they can text the shuttle driver when they land. Amplify staff will meet your camper at their baggage claim and escort them to the shuttle. Once we have picked up your camper, we will text you to let you know.
We encourage it! They will hand over their phone once they have let you know they are safe and sound with the shuttle driver and are ready to start camp! We will hold onto their phone until departure and make sure all phones are fully charged and ready for their flight home.
Yes. We love when we have several kids flying in from the same area and we can arrange to get them all on the same flight, if possible. Please contact us ASAP if your camper will be flying in so we can try to coordinate our campers’ flights and shuttle windows accordingly. You can also join the parent facebook group or join one of our pre camp zooms at the first Monday of the month and try coordinate there.
Yes. There will always be Amplify staff accompanying the campers for arrival and departure to and from camp.
Please contact us ASAP to arrange special pickup/drop off times, keeping in mind that your camper may miss out on some key first day activities, or the closing showcase performance.
Please contact your shuttle driver if this change occurs while your camper is enroute. Otherwise, contact a director at (805) 861-8128 as soon as you are aware of the flight change. We can accommodate reasonable delays in arrival and departures, but significant delays can result in added fees, or rebooking your camper with a different transportation service.
