I'm starting to do my research to find a great band camp location for my students. Anyone have any suggestions in California?

I assume you mean a sleep away camp.

I am a band director--my daughter has gone to Arrowbear near Running Springs for the last 6 years, and loves it a lot. As a parent, I like the low relative cost and the fact that she loves it. As a music teacher I wish they offered private lessons and formal theory classes.

She also went to Cazadero up north one year--she elected to not go another year--not sure why. She had technical issues with her clarinet while there, and they stuck her on tuba for the remainder of the camp. All that was wrong was a simple adjustment on the A key--as a parent I was pretty perturbed about that we spent all that money and she had to play an instrument she was unfamiliar with. Overall though, seems like a great place and many people have a great experience there.

Hope this information is helpful to you.

I've heard good things about Cazadero as well! You can also check out the Univ. of the Pacific Summer Music Camp.

If your students are able to travel, I highly suggest the MFA Summer Symposium in Indiana. It's a huge and incredible summer camp, very inspirational, and the students come back ready to conquer the world with music.
