More About Our Camp

The WTAMU Band Camp has been held annually for 70 years on the campus of West Texas A&M University in Canyon, located in the Texas panhandle just south of Amarillo.  This year, we are including string students in order to also have an orchestra experience.  Students who have completed at least one year of full band or orchestra may attend (entering 7th grade - incoming college freshman).  The campers make up 9 full bands, 4 for junior high and 5 for high school, in addition to a full orchestra and string orchestra.  The camp faculty consists of members of the excellent WTAMU music faculty along with leading high school and junior high band directors from Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma.  A camper's daily schedule includes full band or orchestra rehearsals, sectionals, individual instrument classes, and a required afternoon class and assembly, as well as optional electives at 7:45am and 4:30pm.  In addition, many activities are offered in the evening hours.

Campers staying on campus are housed in university dorms; WT students serve as resident assistants.  Each dorm also has a live-in adult dorm supervisor.  Roommate assignments are made based on requests received from the online registration system.  In the event that no specific roommate is requested, one is assigned by our staff and, whenever possible, campers are kept together with other students from their hometowns.  

We look forward to seeing you at camp this summer!  Please contact our office (806-651-2828 or if you have further questions.
