Band Camp



A band camp typically refers to a high school, college, or university marching band summer camp. Band camp is often mandatory for members of the band and constitutes the majority of the preparation a marching band makes before its marching season (learning how to march, learning "sets" on the field, memorizing show songs).[1][2] A high school marching band may travel to a college or university for band camp for use of its facilities (dormitories, fieldhouses, fields) and services, it may stay at the school, or go to a close by camp/retreat area. The time at band camp is used for focused rehearsals and time for bonding between band members. The auxiliary also learns and rehearses with the marching band.




Band Camp



As marching band is a largely co-educational activity, and many such camps are overnight affairs with inadequate adult supervision, band camps have become infamous in popular culture for being the occasion of large amounts of sexual activity among the participants. The 1999 film American Pie makes extensive reference to this aspect of band camp, and a direct-to-DVD spin-off called American Pie Presents: Band Camp explores this subject in more detail.


Band Camp is available to those who play Clarinet, French Horn Flute, Piccolo, Oboe, String Bass, Guitar, Bassoon, Bass Clarinet, Saxophone (alto, tenor, bari), Euphonium, Trombone, Trumpet, Tuba, Electric Bass, Piano, and Percussion. At the camp, students will improve their individual skills and broaden their own musical experience in a shared environment of teamwork and learning.


In 2012 our finale concert featured the world premiere of the commissioned composition "Earhart: Sounds of Courage" by Robert W. Smith, dedicated in memoriam to Mary Jo Leahey. Mr. Smith joined us for an unforgettable rehearsal and truly inspired us all to "paint the sky orange." Students were thrilled to learn from this master educator whose compositions are well known in the wind band world.


The camp is open to students entering grade 7 through 12 in the Fall of 2023 (next school year). Students must have at least one year of playing experience. Enrollment for the camp is limited due to dorm space, as always, waiting lists will develop. Register early! Dorm space fills up! $100 Non-Refundable Deposit.


Resident Campers will be living on campus and will enjoy spacious, air-conditioned rooms in the resident dormitories. Students are under excellent adult supervision at all times. Resident Campers will be served three meals a day! Resident Campers will not be allowed to leave campus, except for an emergency.


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 or 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.


As of March 22, all residential spots have been filled. If you are interested in staying on campus, please register as a commuter and indicate your interest in being placed on the residential waitlist. Registration closes on May 19, 2023.

Campers are under 24/7 supervision from professional camp staff members. Campers must always be with counselors throughout the day. A counselor stays on each floor to make sure campers are in their rooms and to assist in case of an emergency. Boys and girls are housed in seprate dorms.


Camp ClassesCampers will play in a concert band twice per day, attend sectionals, and participate in masterclasses. They will also get to select two daily elective classes from choices such as musicianship, conducting, steel pans, percussion ensemble, practice time, brass choir, woodwind choir, and jazz improv.

Evening ActivitiesActivities are planned for each evening. Attend faculty concerts, see an Imax Movie, go bowling, and more! There will also be an opportunity to tour the campus, and to interact with our outstanding Music Admissions team.


Two Opportunities To AttendThis camp will be offered during two separate sessions. Each one-week session is structured the same; they will feature the same classes and instructors, and will have similar recreation schedules. The only difference will be that new music will be played each week. If you wish to attend both sessions, great!


You can choose to check-out after the conclusion of the first session and check-in on Sunday for the start of session two, or you can stay on campus for the extra night for a small fee which covers the extra night, extra meals and counselor supervision. Read more about Extra Nights of Housing.
