About Band CampBand Camp logo

Join us for Summer Band Camp 2018!  The Southwest Community Concert Band is offering a Summer Band Camp open to first year school band students, junior high, middle school and incoming freshmen band students. The instructors are dedicated, highly qualified music educators / performers from the Chicago area. The goal of our Summer Band Camp program is to promote music education through a positive experience structured to help students develop their musical talents.

This week-long camp is open to students that are currently enrolled in their school band program and entering their second year in the program through 9th grade. Students may be asked to prepare a short audition for placement purposes. We will be offering an optional Jazz Band or Improvisational classes for interested students. Band Camp will be supervised by an adult staff and this year's Camp will be held at  Saint Francis of Assisi, in their  Religious Ed. Center on the Hill, located at 15050 Wolf Road in Orland Park.

Band Camp starts at 8:30 AM and ends at 3:00 PM.  Campers are asked to bring their own lunches for Monday thru Thursday.  Friday is a special day for Summer Band Camp.  On Friday, the campers will be provided with a pizza lunch.  Band Camp culminates in a Camp Finale Concert, starting at 7:00 PM.

Camp includes:

  • Daily ensemble rehearsals
  • Daily Sectionals and Master Classes 
  • Optional Jazz Band or Musicianship
  • Optional Improvisational Classes
  • Friday Lunch
  • Band Camp T-shirt
