Yes! The Mulerider Band Camp starts a week before school begins. Camp information is mailed the first week of July to all members who have returned their registration cards. Guard and percussion come to SAU ten days before school starts. Students are able to move in for the semester the day of camp registration. Music rehearsals are held during the day and marching rehearsals are in the morning and at night. There is free time to set-up your dorm room, get to know the campus, and have fun. Meals and dormitory lodging for camp are paid by the band department.
