Destination Band Camp at UCA (formerly Dixie Band Camp)

Destination Band Camp participation is optional. The cost to attend was $385.00 in 2024 and is subject to change. This fee includes instructors, evening activities, room and board. The band parent organization generously offers a one hundred fifty dollar tuition scholarship for any WR student.  Any WR student making the All-Region Band gets a full tuition scholarship. Any student making All-State is eligible for a full tuition scholarship from the Dixie Band Camp Board Of Directors. The camp ends with a Saturday concert at the University of Central Arkansas. Students will make many new friends while they learn more about music. Students are well chaperoned and it's loads of fun! Go to for more information.
