Summer Band Camps 2020


UPDATE: Summer Band Camps Cancelled.

Auburn University recently announced that it has suspended on-campus instruction through June 29th and has had to cancel upcoming campus events due to the international outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19). 

We have been working closely with university officials regarding the current COVID-19 situation and after extensive deliberation, we have decided to cancel all 2020 AU Summer Band Camps. This decision was extremely difficult but the health and safety of our campers and staff are of the utmost concern. 

You will receive a full refund for all Summer Band Camps for which your child is currently registered/paid. The process of issuing refunds has already begun; there is not a need to contact us to start that process. We appreciate your patience as we process those transactions.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Joshusa Wine. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to see you at our camps in future years!

The Auburn University Bands holds two annual Summer Symphonic Band Camps each year.  These camps, designed for Middle School and High School students respectively, provide an excellent opportunity for the musical development of our participants during the summer.  Rehearsals with band students from across the country, as well as section rehearsals and master classes, are a reason your child won’t want to miss out on being a part of our summer camp program this year.

Throughout the camp participants will get to know their fellow campers while staying in AU Residence Halls and taking part in games and social activities, which make this a fun camp experience any band student would enjoy.  At the end of the camp the participants will perform in a Finale Concert for parents and the Auburn community.  We hope you come on down and take advantage of the one-of-a-kind experience you will have at Auburn University Summer Symphonic Band Camps.
