Greetings everyone, and welcome to the 2017 JMU Summer Band Camps staff!

Below you will find some basic information about our 2017 program, including staff documents, basic camp information, as well as links to the SBC website to find out more information about this year’s camp.  Also, please check back as the information will be updated as we revise documents for the 2017 camp and in preparation for the arrival of the staff.  I hope you will find this helpful when preparing for your trip to campus in July. 

If you have any questions about the information below, please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing everybody on TUESDAY, July 4 at 2pm in Room 108 of the Music Building for our opening staff meeting.
