Registration deadline is June 13 for summer band camp

May 15, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- Western Michigan University will offer a specialized band camp for high school students Sunday through Wednesday, June 22 through 25, on its main Kalamazoo campus.

The Bronco Marching Band Summer Camp is designed to inspire and motivate members of the auxiliary portions of marching bands: color guards, twirlers, drum lines and drum majors.

Band camp students will receive three days of field experience, gain new ideas and material for their bands as well as their own personal growth, and perform on the football field during the camp's closing ceremonies in WMU's Waldo Stadium.

While on campus, students will live and take their meals in the University's residence halls, where they will meet and socialize with other high school students from around Michigan. They also will have an opportunity to get better acquainted with WMU and participate in evening activities, such as spending time at the Student Recreation Center and enjoying a pizza party dance.

Those taking part in the camp may sign up to attend the color guard, twirler, drum line or drum major clinic, the latter of which is open to drum majors and/or section leaders.

The Bronco Marching Band Summer Camp costs $295 per person, which includes housing, meals and evening activities. The registration deadline is June 13.

To register, follow the instructions in the event brochure, which is available by calling WMU's Conferences and Seminars office at (269) 387-4174 or by visiting the calendar section of the office's Web site at <www.wmich.edu/conferences>.
