• Bandology – More music for more kids

Band Camp

Bandology’s annual Band Camp is a week-long day camp for keen music students in grades 7-12 who want to improve their musical skills in the summer.

Led by some of the best conductors, clinicians and music teachers in southern Ontario, campers enjoy using top-notch music facilities to participate in warm-ups and chorales, break-out into sectionals and small groups, and rehearse as a full concert band. There’s also lots of fun with games, camp projects and team-building activities. At the end of the week, campers have a final day pizza party while preparing for Music and Mocktails, a free mini-concert for parents and friends.


Band Camp Halton runs July 8-12, 2024.

Band Camp Guelph runs July 22-26, 2024.

Band Camp Kitchener-Waterloo runs July 29-Aug 2, 2024.
