CHBA Summer Camp

Summer Band Camp Details

Dear CHBA Parents, Students, and Supporters,

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, hard work, and commitment to becoming better musicians.

Parents, ensure your child is doing well, and then trust the process. 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 unique. They will be able to swim, rock climb, go tubing on a summer tubing hill (not river tubing), putt-putt golf, do arts and crafts, and so many activities, much like the days when the CHBA summer camp was held in Grand Lake, CO.


Summer Camp is open to any student age 10-18 who has at least one year’s experience on a band instrument.* Most participants are year-round CHBA members, but we welcome non-members to participate. CHBA runs the camp with our familiar Music Directors and an entire 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 three bands,  Advanced Beginners, Summer Intermediates, and Summer Winds.


The Summer Camp is located in Grand County and is hosted at the Snow Mountain Ranch in Granby, CO. Snow Mountain Ranch offers the amenities as our previous camps in a fabulous mountain setting.


June 4 – 8, 2023, at the YMCA Snow Mountain Ranch
