UW-Green BaySummer Camps

Middle School Band Camp

For campers entering grades 8-9.

Online registration for this program has now closed. Please call 920-465-2775.

 

Camp Specifics:

  • Daily Class Hours: 8:30 am - 3:40 pm
  • Commuter Fee: $279 (includes instruction, lunches, and camp t-shirt)
  • Resident/Housing Fees: $539 (includes instruction, room and board, camp t-shirt, counselor supervision and evening activity transportation)

The Green Bay and Honors Bands feature exciting music that will be fun and challenging! Campers will audition on Sunday afternoon for chair placement. Campers will participate in an array of classes that will develop their music abilities and prepare them for the final concert in the Weidner Center. These bands are for campers entering grades 8-9 in the fall.

Campers entering grades 6-7 in the fall should register for our Middle School X-Band Camp. If a 7th grader has attended X-Band Camp in the past they are welcome to register for the Middle School Band Camp. If you believe your 6-7th grader is ready for Middle School Band Camp rather than X-Band Camp they can audition with an e-mail sent from their music teacher to summercamps@uwgb.edu giving them a recommendation to do so. Please let us know if you have any questions!
