ADDRESS FOR CAMP:
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 21 thru Thursday, Aug 25. 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 Band Camp cost is $240.00 per person which includes use of Camp Nokomis, the food service, transportation to & from the Camp & WHS.
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. If you are interested in chaperoning, please complete this form.
General information about Camp Nokomis is available on their website, but we would be happy to answer any additional questions you might have regarding the band camp.
