High school students: this is your opportunity to improve LOADS in a short amount of time AND have fun with fellow oboists and bassoonists.

The adult sessions will be in the morning and early afternoon, leaving time for participants to practice and enjoy the beauty of our area and enjoy the downtown Eau Claire area that is walking distance from campus (limited bus service is also available). We will also have evening concerts and time to enjoy the many outdoor evening events happening in Eau Claire in the summer. Rent or Bring a bike! The campus is located right on the beautiful Chippewa River and over 60+ miles of enjoyment on the Chippewa River Bike Trails. Weather averages in Eau Claire during July are 83F days/60F nights, so come and enjoy the temperate climate.
This camp is for beginners through advanced players--all are welcome to participate in this week-long event to learn a lot and have FUN being with other double reed players.
