Summer Band Camp Opportunities

Summer Band Camp Opportunities

The directors would like to make each of you aware of the multiple opportunities available every summer for band and color guard members.  Universities around the state and nation facilitate multi day camps designed for student enrichment in their designated areas.  Summer Camps can serve as a great vehicle to get to know the faculty and students at any university as you try to figure out what school you want to attend after high school graduation.  Getting to know the faculty of a university prior to scholarship auditions could potentially boost your scholarship financial levels.  You can also meet new friends, study with respected instructors and specialists on your instrument, participate in social activities, choose electives that interest you, and stay in a college dorm with your friends. 

We would like to encourage all of our Quinlan Band and Color Guard Students to attend a summer university camp.  If you have any questions, feel free to ask any director.

Use the links below to learn more about the different camps available, their costs, & sign-up to go!  You won't regret it! 
Each link should lead you to the camp's main page, where you can find information for the camp, price information, and steps to register.
