All attendees (new and returning) must pay a $50 fee for each Experience Camp. This small fee covers professional instruction and all meals: lunch, dinner & snack on Saturday, and breakfast & lunch on Sunday for both camps.

IMPORTANT: Experience Camp fees are also counted as a payment towards your summer tuition.

Color Guard Times

The guard will be a part of the Nov Dec and Jan camp weekends. The guard only attends the Sunday of each of these camp weekends. Details for guard practice times will be posted as we get closer to each weekend. The guard does not practice again until Mid April after WGI is complete. Members are asked to register for information and any out of the area members will be contacted by the guard staff for further information.

Can’t attend the Experience Camps?

If you can’t make the Experience Camps, not to worry. We have one-day practice sessions throughout the fall and winter.

Anyone is welcome at our practice sessions! You do not have to attend the Experience Camp first.
