Winter’s almost over, which means summer’s almost here! For serious music students, that means it’s time to start thinking about how to spend the summer, and how music will play a part.

For those who are interested in expanding their musical horizons in an educational setting, there are numerous camps specializing in music throughout the country and beyond. Whether students are looking for a focus in marching band, jazz band, chamber ensembles, strings/orchestra, or drum line/auxiliary, music camps help to foster leadership skills, teamwork, new learning experiences and friendships. Many camps offer ensemble settings as well as individualized instruction, and some also include recreational electives and other outdoor activities.

In this Report, School Band and Orchestra presents an alphabetical sampling of some of the music camps in session this summer. For additional information about individual camps, visit the Web site listed with each one.
