Drum Camp 2017
Good Shepherd Catholic School
June 5th-9th; 9am-2pm each day (concert at 6pm on Friday)
Come join us for the largest percussion camp in all of Central Florida! During our 6th annual drum camp, students of all experience levels have the opportunity to learn about and play different drums from all over the world. In addition to learning about different instruments and musical concepts, all participants will have the opportunity to perform multiple pieces for the final concert!
Activities will include rhythmic workshops, drum set master classes, stomp, small ensembles, music theory, and more. High school students will spend plenty of time with marching percussion (snare, bass, tenors, cymbals). Pre-K students will have creative arts and crafts, educational music games, and more specialized instruction.

What time is it from?
The camp goes from 9am-2pm each day, and the final concert is at 6pm on Friday. After the child finishes on Friday at 2pm, the parent can choose to pick him up and bring him back at 5:30, or allow him to stay to help set up for the concert. All students will be given a Drum Camp 2017 shirt to wear for the final concert.
I work from 8am-5pm and may have transportation problems. Is there a solution for this?
Several parents have this concern. There will be staff on site as early as 7:30am, which will allow for early drop-off. For pick up, we can arrange rotating carpool schedules to help parents work together to facilitate transportation of their children.
What is the age limit/requirement? Will my 4-year-old be placed in a group with a 15-year-old?
We accept participants between pre-k and 12th grade. All groups are separated by age first, then ability level. Pre-K participants will be in another group and will not mix with the other students; high schoolers as well.
What does my child need to bring to the camp each day?
School lunch will be provided, but if your child prefers homemade lunch, have him/her bring it instead. Each participant should also bring his/her drumsticks WITH INITIALS on it; and most importantly, a positive attitude!
High school students should additionally bring in a water cooler to stay hydrated. They will be spending time with the marching drums outside.
Where do I drop off my child(ren)?
There are 2 entrances to the church/school campus. Enter in through east entrance which is for the smaller parking lot. Continue down until the loop by the black gate for the 2-story building (this is where the camp will be held). Signs will be placed to help guide you. For Pre-K students, you will have to drop them off directly in their classroom.
Are your staff members and volunteers background-checked?
Yes; fingerprinted as well. We need to insure the maximum safety for our students.
What's the refund policy?
If the cancellation is done within 24 hours of the registration, a full refund can be given. After 24 hours of registration, no refund can be given.
Can I update my registration information?
Are there any discounts available, i.e. family discounts or referral rewards?
Yes and yes! If you have multiple children attending, it will be full price for the first registrant and $10 off for each subsequent sibling. Also, you will be credited back with $10 for EACH referral that you bring.
