Tannen's Magic Camp (originally Tannen's Magic Week), is an annual convention sponsored by Tannen's Magic which teaches young magicians through hands-on instruction on the grounds of Bryn Mawr College, about nine miles west of Philadelphia,

It began in 1974 and is open to budding magicians ages from 12 to 20. They feature a schedule of lectures and classes given by magicians, along with evening celebrity performances, both in close-up and stage shows.

Notable graduates include David Blaine, Joshua Jay, Steve Cohen, Darren Romeo and actor Adrien Brody. Past guests and counselors have included David Copperfield, Johnny Thompson, Jay Sankey, Banachek, Marc DeSouza, and Jeff McBride.[1]

Tannen’s Magic Camp is the setting of a forthcoming documentary entitled "Magic Camp", which officially premiered at The Newport Beach Film Festival in April of 2012.[2]
