    Band Camp for Adults!
    A program that I went to in high school (NEMC) is adding "adult music camps" - both band and orchestra. I had a great time there when I was a kid, and the area that it is gorgeous (Lakeside Maine)
    They'll be both a band week and an orchestra week, and the daily schedule includes something called a happy hour :shhh:

    The International Music Camp International Music Camp has an adult camp as their last session of the summer. This year it is July 28-31. The camp is located in the International Peace Gardens on the border of North Dakota and Manitoba. For brass there are intermediate/advanced and brass bands, so it's easy to play in one of the concert bands as well as the brass band. This is also the official summer camp for NABBA. Lots of fun, great music and people and pretty inexpensive!

    Bill.... Thanks for the response and the information. I plan to be in Saskatchewan for a short time this summer so might be able to match up dates with the July 28-31 IMC camp. Will give you and the general membership my impressions if I get there. JA

    I went to IMC many times as a kid. Loved it. Especially when we had BBQ burgers the first day... Chili the second day.... Meatloaf the third day... Hey, just a minute! Lol. Really the camp was great.
