JUNE 21-23, 2019

The Mandarins Leadership Camp is a three-day, overnight summer camp for high school student leaders. Our program provides students with the tools, tips, and techniques to become effective leaders once they return to their bands. We accomplish this through demonstration and experiential learning in small group settings. The intent is that students will be equipped to effectively support their band director’s vision and goals. All students will have the opportunity to work with different educators and clinicians throughout the camp weekend.
