The University of Nebraska–Lincoln Cornhusker Summer Marching Band Camp fosters leadership, marching fundamentals, and performance skills in all areas of the high school marching band. Participants receive intensive instruction from clinicians on an individual and group basis. The age range of campers is students entering the 9th grade through leaving 12th grade (including graduates).

Most clinic sessions take place outdoors, so participants must come prepared with sunscreen, cool clothing and athletic shoes. The camp finale is an exhibition performance in Memorial Stadium on the final day of the camp. All camp participants perform at this exhibition. All campers are encouraged to live on campus during the camp to take full advantage of evening work sessions and planned activities. Students choosing the resident camper package live in a campus residence hall and dine in the hall's cafeteria. Each floor is supervised by several live-in counselors. Campers must provide their own musical instrument and all accessories such as music lyres, percussion sticks, and flip folders. The University Band Program can provide a limited number of front ensemble percussion instruments. Lockers are available in Westbrook Music Building.

Equipment list for all campers (what to bring with you):

  • your instrument or flag and pole
  • cool, comfortable clothing
  • light rain coat or poncho
  • pencils
  • notebook
  • athletic shoes
  • water bottle
  • sun block
  • band aids
  • all medications prescribed for the student


University music and band students will serve as camp counselors and will supervise camp participants throughout the day and overnight at the residence hall. The camp counselors will be in residence on each floor at the residence hall throughout the evening and night. There will be a room check every night and the curfew will be strictly enforced. The camp counselors will assist with the five instruction clinics. All clinicians, instructors, staff and counselors undergo a background check before the camp begins.
