Summer Camp

Summer Band Camp Details

Summer Band Camp in Colorado
Band students ages 9-18 love our yearly summer camp on the CSU Campus!

Sunday, June 2 —Thursday, June 6, 2019

Our yearly 5-day, 4-night camp is a wonderful opportunity for students to make great musical strides. Every day is packed with full-band rehearsals, small-group master classes, and recreation time, and the week culminates with a concert for family and friends.


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 who are our camp counselors and master class teachers. *Does not include piano, guitar, or other stringed instruments.

Summer Band Camp at CSU
Rock climbing at the CSU Recreation Center!


Camp is held on the Colorado State University Campus in Fort Collins. Students and staff members stay in a university dormitory and eat all meals in a campus cafeteria. Students are paired in double rooms and choose their own roommates before camp. (We are happy to help match you up with a roommate if you need one.) Recreation time is spent at the CSU Student Recreation Center, where students have a variety of activity choices including tennis, basketball, volleyball, swimming, running, and rock climbing. At the end of the week, the camp performance is held on the lawn by the dormitory. Updated: After a rash of rain outs, lightning, thunderstorms, etc., concerts are now held indoors.


Summer camp generally takes place the 1st full week in June, from a Sunday night to a Thursday night. Students report on Sunday between 7-7:30 PM and  the final concert will be at  7 PM Thursday evening.
