Participation at these camps is strongly encouraged. However, we understand that distance and other factors may prevent interested students in attending, and that not everyone will be able to attend every camp date. Please email Alex Vallar if you plan to audition, and fill out the Prospective Member Form.  We will of course break for meals on these days.

Students who are unable to attend any camps should contact Alex to discuss sending a video of their technique.

Note that the move-in for 2018 drumline members will be on Tuesday, August 7.
