The Saskatchewan Band Association’s 2018 Yorkton Junior Band Camp is filled with many activities to make the week both educational and fun! We have an excellent staff of qualified professionals lined up who are excited to share their musical knowledge with you.
The Yorkton camp is a day camp that will generally run from 8:50am until 4:00 or 5:00pm during the week with recreational activities also planned for some of the evenings. Participants are required to bring their own lunch each day to camp.
The week of camp will include a mix of full Band, sectionals, private lessons, master classes, music theory, and ensemble work.
Past Recreational Activities have included:
Supervised recreation time every day, carnivals, bowling, dances, movies, frisbee golf and Band Camp Olympics.
A detailed schedule of this years events will be sent out closer to the camp date.
The camp offers comprehensive musical instruction for woodwind, brass and percussion students who have one or more years of playing experience. The camp will conclude with a final concert to showcase all that the participants have learned during the week. The concert will begin at 2:00pm on Friday, July 20th.
