Dixie Band Camp at UCA
Band Camp participation is optional. The cost to attend is $325.00. This fee includes instructors, evening activities, and room and board. The band parent organization generously offers a one hundred dollar tuition scholarship for any WR student making an All-Region Band. Any student making All-State is eligible for a full tuition scholarship to Band Camp. Students are very safe and well chaperoned. The camp ends with a Saturday concert at UCA. Its lots of fun and the students will make many new friends while they learn more about music. Go to DixieBandCamp.net for more information. Students are reminded to get the audition material from Mr. Long before camp begins.
