My son is 14 and has been playing piano in his high school jazz band for about a year. He reads well, and is getting into jazz. My wife thinks we should send him to a summer jazz camp. Anyone have good recommendations?

I've never been to a jazz camp,but the two I hear the most about are the Stanford Jazz program   https://stanfordjazz.org/jazz-camp/ and the Jamey Aebersold camps. http://workshops.jazzbooks.com/  Both have great reputations for having great programming, and professional instructors.

I found this list for a bunch of jazz camps...

The Berklee program is supposed to be great. I've also heard great things about the interlochen Camp, but It's not as jazz focused I think.
