There are two tuition rates for the camps. For students staying on-campus, the tuition is $400 (including the deposit) and they are provided three meals as part of their tuition. For students who prefer to stay off-campus and commute to the camp, the tuition is $250 and includes only one meal.Tuition rates increase for those registering after June 1.

Students who made an All-State ensemble for the 2021-22 academic year are eligible for an All-State Camp Scholarship. To receive the scholarship, campers must pay in person or by mail and have a letter from their director verifying their All-State status.


This camp will help high school drum majors, color guard, drum line, front ensemble, and all other instrumentalists prepare for the 2022 marching season. Students will work with TAMUK faculty and the leadership team of the Pride of South Texas Javelina Marching Band. All students will receive instruction in leadership techniques, as well as their area of specialization. In addition, every afternoon they will be able to participate in electives, including concert, chamber, and jazz ensembles, mariachi, conducting, improvisation, and much more! Come join us this summer and be part of the first summer camp to be held in the new, state-of-the-art, 100,000 square foot music building.


Refund requests must be requested in writing prior to June 12. If a request is received on, or after June 12th, we will be unable to process the refund. Should the camp be cancelled for any reason, campers will receive a prorated discount based on the number of days the camp was in session, minus the $100.00 deposit. For example, if the camp is cancelled after two full days, campers will receive a 60% discount of the total fee minus deposit. Camp cancellation is at the discretion of the camp directors and/or the university. In case of cancellation, each camper’s parent or guardian must fill out the proper paperwork for the refund, including a W-9 tax form and valid social security number. No refunds can be issued without this information. All payments must be made from the same source to ensure a full refund should the camp be cancelled.
