Join us for Summer Band Camp 2024, sponsored by the
Southwest Community Concert Band (SWCCB) .  The SWCCB
Summer Band Camp, which was started in 2007, is open to junior high/middle school students from incoming 6th  grade through
incoming freshmen. Students participating in the camp are
required to have at least one full school year of performance
experience in their school band. The instructors are dedicated,
highly qualified music educators / performers from the Chicago
area. The goal of our Summer Band Camp is to promote music
education in a well-structured, positive, fun and safe environment
helping students to develop and expand their musical talents.

All students who partake in this week-long camp will receive: 

  •    Daily full concert band rehearsals

  •    Instrumental ensembles

  •    Sectional/Master classes

  •    Optional Jazz Band or Music Appreciation sessions

    along with a camp t-shirt and the overall experience of our unique program.

Summer Band Camp will be held at Saint Francis of Assisi, at the Religious Education Center on the hill, located at 15050 Wolf Road in Orland Park. Band Camp begins each day at 8:30 AM and ends at 3:00 PM.  Campers are asked to bring their own lunches for Monday thru Thursday. Assorted cold beverages will be available for $1.00 each day. On Friday, a pizza lunch will be served and is included in the camp fee.  Band Camp culminates in a Camp Finale Concert, which takes place on Friday evening at 7:00 PM.
