Band Camp 2021

102 Powers Rd, Meredith, NH 03253

  Once again, the Wilmington Public Schools Performing Arts Department will sponsor a summer band camp at Camp Nokomis on Bear Island,
Lake Winnipesaukee, Meredith, New Hampshire. 
Camp participation provides a solid foundation for all high school band activities. 
Dates for this year’s camp will be Sunday Aug 22-Thursday, Aug 26.   Although it may seem early to be thinking about August, Camp Nokomis requires a non-refundable deposit by June 1 to hold our reservation.              This year’s rates are $180.00 per person for use of all facilities and food service. The cost of transportation and Pride T-shirt is $60 per person.  This brings the total cost to $240 per person for our stay at Camp Nokomis. 
  As you may know, our camp experiences over the past forty years have been an overwhelming success. The response and cooperation of the students, chaperones and instructors make our four-day stay a unique and    enjoyable educational-cultural learning experience.      
  We are, of course, looking for adult chaperones for our camp stay and hope that some of you will consider a “vacation” with the Wilmington Wildcat Marching Band. Camp Nokomis is a truly beautiful camp area. 
   The cost for chaperones is $180 (Room and Board). Room and board for returning chaperones who are enrolled in college is paid by the Band Parents Association.
General information about Camp Nokomis is available here on our website, but we would be happy to answer any additional questions you might have regarding the camp or our program.

Non-refundable Deposit #1: $80.00......Due 6/4

      (This schedule is intended to ease the financial pain by spreading the deadlines over a period of several weeks.   If you prefer to write one check in May for the total amount of $240, we will gladly mark you paid-in-full.)

This year, the entire process of planning is a little behind as a result of the obstacles due to the pandemic. With this change, our payment schedule has been slightly accelerated compared to past years. If you feel that you cannot attend camp or make a payment for financial reasons, please speak with Mr. Ferrara and accommodations can be made.
