Band Camp

Bandology’s 5th annual Band Camp is a week-long day camp for keen music students in grades 7-12 who want to improve their instrumental music skills in the summer. Band Camp runs July 12-16, 2021.

We’ve pivoted! To accommodate COVID-19, we’ve shifted to a non-blowing camp. Click here for details about Band Camp V!

Band Camp provides a fun opportunity to advance music skills in the middle of summer for students who are keen musicians and are involved in concert bands in their local high school or junior high.

Led by some of the best conductors, clinicians and music teachers in the GTA, 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.

Campers bring their own instruments; percussion equipment is provided. Don’t have your own instrument? Don’t worry – click here for details of our partnership with Long and McQuade.
