Advanced Band & Orchestra, 2020 

Grades 9-College
Sunday, July 12-Saturday, July 25  ~ 2 weeks 
Concert- Saturday, July 25th, 5pm

Advanced Session’s musical focus is on standard orchestral and symphonic band repertoire with time devoted to chamber ensembles. The repertoire consists of music typical for skilled high school or high school aged honor groups. Campers should expect to rehearse 6 hours a day plus any additional time they choose to devote to individual practice.   


Dorms are supervised by 1-2 live-in adult staff members for each sleeping area, and all other camp activities are supervised by additional staff at a ratio of 1 to 12.

Campers are involved with activity leadership and planning.


Objectives for all Arrowbear sessions include:

-Preparing an impressive final concert that involves the whole camp.

-Ending the session with all camp participants knowing, respecting, and supporting each other.


Our methods to reach these goals incorporate:

-An age appropriate session structure.

-Filling our non-musical time with interactive group experiences to help widespread bonding of campers.

-Intercepting ridicule.

-Activities designed to build acceptance and affectionate regard where no one is left out.  

-Supporting the entire camp session becoming friends.

-Encouraging stewardship of our natural surroundings.
