Our Band Camps

Our Band Camp program was developed in partnership with Bakerview Center For Learning, an alternative S.D. #34 High School. Bakerview provides a district program that draws from all middle and high schools in Abbotsford. When we first connected with Bakerview in 2012, they lacked their own music program, so they were happy to provide space for an after-school Band Camp program that welcomed students from all schools. It’s still the home base for most of our Band Camps.

Our Band Camp is an encouraging, supportive, and positive environment. Our student to teacher ratio is low and students get lots of quality time with enthusiastic young mentors they can look up to. Our students leave the camp with new friends, a new way of expressing themselves, higher self-esteem, and improved social skills. We know that these developments can be enough to start a positive new trend in a young person’s life.

Students from anywhere in Abbotsford can attend our Band Camps. We offer beginning level and intermediate level Camps every year.
