Testimonials:

” Thank for for, once again, providing me with an unforgettable and insightful summer at PCP that I will cherish forever.”   PCP Camper, 2013

“Thank you so much for giving a wonderful experience to so many students at PCP! With Admiration and Appreciation,”
student piano teacher, 2013

Please know that your camp can change kids’  lives  So again, thank you!   Parent of PCP student, 2012

“When I first applied to PCP at twelve, I had expected to go for one summer, and then try something new. But I hadn’t expect to fall in love with a place like I did.
My collective nine weeks at PCP were probably the happiest of my life. It was the time when I most felt like I was part of a community, and that this community really did matter, and that I mattered too. I know that I’ll always have fond memories of blasting classical music in the Roost, photocopying quartets from the library, and in general, just discussing music, like whether we thought composers like Bartok, Stravinsky and Berg were wonderful or awful.
 
I think that easily the majority of why I want to become a musician is from my experience at PCP, from the amazing faculty and friends, and the musical relationships that were established.  In short, Lake Dunmore will always have an extremely special place in my heart, and I do plan to come back some day, perhaps in a decade, on the music faculty :)  Camper, 2012
