Saskatchewan Band Camps
WHAT IS BAND CAMP?
A great way to receive excellent musical instruction in a fun-filled week! The Saskatchewan Band Association offers comprehensive instruction for woodwind, brass and percussion students who have one or more years of playing experience. Band Camps are hosted in Regina, Saskatoon and Yorkton as week long day camps. Kenosee Lake Junior Camp is offered as a week long full residential camp at Clearview Camp in beautiful Kenosee Lake Provincial Park.
What camp offers:
SBA Band camps provide an incredible mix of private lessons, sectional instruction, master classes, theory, ear and rhythm training along with full band, staff performances and recreational activities. Participants experience a week filled with specialized instruction and fun that they won't soon forget!
Students are assigned to a band on the first morning of camp, according to their musical experience and performance ability. The camps focus on improving performance skills that relate directly to the positive experiences of playing in a large ensemble. Of course, each camp wraps up with an exciting public concert.

It is not all work at SBA Camps. Although music is the focus, recreation and fun are an essential ingredient in the overall camping experience. In addition to breaks and free time, each day, a wide-array of planned activities keep students active and involved. Depending on the particular camp, students participate in a wide variety of activities during scheduled recreation periods. The fun continues into the evening with activities such as dances, movies, student talent night, faculty recitals and other concerts.

The Kenosee Lake Jr. Camp is held at Clearview Church Camp in Kenosee Provincial Park. This is a residential camp where all students and staff stay on-site in cabins.
