Q: What does my student need to bring to camp? A: All students need to bring their instrument and any supplemental instrument materials (i.e. reeds, valve oil, etc). Percussionists must provide their own mallets and drum sticks.
Q: What should my student wear to camp? A: Students should dress comfortably (i.e. t-shirt, shorts, comfy shoes). All attire should be school appropriate. Students wear their camp t-shirt on the last day of camp for our Grand Finale Concert.
Q: Where do I go on the first day of camp? A: Check-In will be located at the Bailey Performance Center at Kennesaw State University. Check-In begins at 8:30 am on Monday.
Q: Will you be providing lunch during camp? A: Yes! Camp tuition includes lunch for all camp days. Students will have access to a variety of dining options at Kennesaw State University's Dining Hall, which can accommodate all food allergies and dietary restrictions. If students need a midday snack, please have your student pack one for the day.
Q: Why is there a transportation acknowledgement agreement in the 2023 registration form? A: We are excited to announce that due to increased demand, camp is expanding this year into the Brandsmart Building at Kennesaw State University! The past two years we hit camp capacity early, which left more than 50 families on our waitlist. This year we will have access to a larger rehearsal facility, which allows us to expand the camp to allow more students to participate! Because of the distance between Brandsmart and the Bailey Performance Center, those students who rehearse in Brandsmart will receive charter bus transportation to and from lunch and sectional rehearsals (about a 6 minute drive one way), which allows them easy access to all other parts of the KSU campus. All charter buses will be supervised by our Cobb Camp Music Faculty and will remain on the KSU Campus at all times. In addition to utilizing the Brandsmart Building in 2023, we will continue to use the Bailey Performance Center for the other two performing ensembles.
Q: Will I receive a confirmation e-mail after submitting my camp registration and payment? A: Yes! You will receive an automatic response upon completing the registration form and payment.
Q: Is my registration payment refundable? A: All payments made to the Cobb Summer Band Camp are non-refundable. Only register your student for camp if you know they are available to attend.
