A residential or commuter camp for woodwind, brass and percussion players entering grades 5-10 with a minimum of nine months playing experience. Whether you stay overnight ore return home in the evenings, students will grow as musicians with rehearsals, sectionals and a final concert, and have fun making new friends through supervised social activities.

Registration closes on May 19, 2023.

  • 1:00 p.m. - Recreation
  • 2:30 p.m. - Sectionals
  • 3:30 p.m. - Band rehearsal

  • 6:30 p.m. - Evening activity
  • 8:30 p.m. - Commuter pick-up & Dorm Time (residential)

  • Resident - $590 fee covers all room and board (three meals per day), admission fees and activities supplies.

    • Commuter - $490 fee covers lunch and dinner each day plus admission fees and activities supplies. Commuters are dropped off each morning between 8:15-8:30 a.m. and picked up at 8:15 p.m.
