CHBA Summer Camp

Summer Band Camp Details

Dear CHBA Parents, Students, and Supporters,

We are pleased to announce that the CHBA Summer Camp will return for the Summer of 2022. June 11 – 15, 2022.

The Mission of CHBA Summer Camp:

CHBA summer camp strives to help young musicians grow and improve with a daily structure of full ensemble rehearsals, individual section rehearsals, and recreation time when not in rehearsal. The CHBA summer camp strives to create more independent students. We want students to experience the results of their choices, their hard work, and their commitment to becoming a better musician.

Parents, make sure your child is doing well, and then let the CHBA camp do its job.  First-time campers take a day or so to adjust, but they quickly catch on and most have a great week.

Snow Mountain Ranch was chosen because the history of the CHBA included a mountain summer camp experience for its students. SMR is a beautiful setting and the opportunities here are very unique. They will be able to swim, rock climb, go tubing on a summer tubing hill (not river tubing), putt-putt golf, arts and crafts, so many activities. Much like the days when the CHBA summer camp was hosted in Grand Lake, CO.


Summer Camp is open to any student age 10-18 who has at least 1 year’s experience on a band instrument.* The majority of participants are year-round CHBA members, but we welcome non-members to participate. The camp is administered by CHBA Music Directors and a full staff of college-age musicians as camp counselors and master class teachers. * Camp does not include piano, guitar, or other stringed instruments.

There will be 3 bands,  Advanced Beginners, Summer Intermediates, and
Summer Winds.


The Summer Camp is returning to Grand County and will be hosted at the Snow Mountain Ranch in Granby, CO. Snow Mountain Ranch offers the amenities as our previous camps in a great mountain setting.
