Encore Band Camp - Georgia College and State University
Registration is now open for Encore! 2019. This year our camps will be from June 23-27, 2019 at Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville. Students & Parents can go on the website at www.encorebandcamp.com to register and make their deposits or payments. It is the same registration for either Encore! or Encore! High.
Last summer, we were very excited to celebrate year #30 of Encore! as well as the very first Encore! High camp and look forward to bigger and better things in 2019! We had almost 250 students in camp last year including 36 in our inaugural High School Band and are thrilled that every student who attended last year is eligible to return this year. With the returning HS students as well as the 8th graders who participated in camp last summer, we are hoping to double the size of the high school group this year in addition to adding another great group of new middle school students!
