June 2nd through 17th - Summer Music Camp at Chatfield Senior High
The Columbine area is taking a year off from doing a summer music camp. However, I would like to extend an offer to the Chatfield summer music camp. For $60, you can attend as many or few classes as you would like. They offer beginning, intermediate, and advanced band, beginning and advanced orchestra, and jazz band. Here is the flier/registration slip (download). I highly recommend this camp, it is run really well and loads of fun!
