Across five full days of action, kids young and semi-young will undergo a comprehensive camp curriculum chock-full of running, throwing, catching, blocking, teamworking, confidence building, high-fiving, and more.

All campers are led by professional educators from the high-school and collegiate level, and each day's knowledge bowl soars even higher with visits from Eagles greats, ranging from Fred Barnett to the great Pete Retzlaff (Philadelphia Eagles players vary by camp location). By teaming up with experienced players and coaches, kids will be treated to comprehensive instruction that goes beyond purely mechanical skills.

Main Line Center for Bartending provides a hands-on learning environment to become a Pennsylvania-state-licensed bartender in just one, two, or five weeks. Each class spends at least 80% of the time behind the bar, with the remaining time filled with lectures, role-playing, or brainstorming how to mix undiscovered beauties, such as the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster. In class, students tend to a 35-foot bar completely stocked with all the necessary equipment. By the end of each session, wet-eared barkeeps will grasp the mixing of more than 250 drinks, ins and outs of general bar duties, and how to enlighten patrons with astute customer service and a convincingly consoling wipe-down of the guest-tender gap.

Like the quadruple-digit fire inside The Crefeld Glass Studio's furnace, the instructors' enthusiasm for glassworking helps budding artists create things they could not have attempted on their own. Classes are kept at four to eight students so that everyone gets a clear view of classmates as they work the furnace. Regular pop-ins from visiting artists imbue The Crefeld Glass Studio with a collaborative vibe, and an online gallery gives students a place to proudly show off the exquisitely rounded rims of their amber-streaked vases or the short-sightedness of their delicate glass sledgehammers.

The natural-light-bathed Retro City Studios features one of the best live rooms in the city and a host of customizable isolation rooms. In the main recording room overlooking the entire space, you'll be able to play and fiddle with board after board of high-end tuning technology. Taught by working professional musicians (the founders of Retro), classes will help you quickly pick up the fundamentals of recording and audio production, using your hands and your mad sense of beat to manipulate and therefore familiarize yourself with the core properties of sound. From there, you'll handle all the obscure pieces of equipment and the latest Pro-Tools and MIDI programs before giving it your grooviest shot at mixing your own track. Even the least aurally talented can always slam the Auto Auto-Tune button, and everyone gets a free T-shirt at the end of the session, even if the koalas can't shake it to your custom dub.
