The Stephen Collins Foster High School Band Camp is the original of all the Foster Camps options. A Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band will perform an outdoor concert at EKU's breathtaking Van Peursem Amphitheater on Saturday evening of the first week, as well as the Camp Grand Finale Concert on Friday, the last day of camp in the EKU Center For the Arts.
Students will also have the opportunity to play in small ensembles throughout the duration of camp, and with the Foster Camp Symphony Orchestra during Week Two. Our fine instrumental faculty, student counselors and staff make every effort to provide an educational experience with time for fun and recreation.
A one week option is available for High School Band Camp. Due to the performance schedule and class curriculum we can only allow students who wish to attend one week to do so during our first week of high school camp. We are unable to accommodate students who wish to only attend the final week alone. There are no exception to this rule.
If you are planning on attending the first week of high school band camp you will need to register for the World Percussion Workshop. You will still participate with the band during this time. If you plan on attending two weeks you must register for "World Perc/2nd Week HS Band".
Afternoon activities are planned each evening for the campers. Activities include, but are not limited to, tennis, soccer, basketball, swimming, kickball, softball, movies, indoor/outdoor games, board games, video game tournaments, etc. We offer several afternoon activities each evening allowing students to choose their favorites.
