Color Guard Camp Intensive

Color Guard Camp Intensive

Color Guard Intensive at Appel Farm Arts Camp

This summer, middle and high school students with a passion for color guard will train with highly qualified, award-winning color guard staff at Appel Farm! Expert training for up to six hours a day, plus exploring dance, music, visual arts, and more, this summer opportunity is one of a kind!

The Program

Camp program design, coordination, and instruction led by World Class Drum Corps, Winter Guard, and Marching Band Creative Designers Louis Hellinger and Matt Hurley.

The program will deliver differentiated instruction based on skill level for equipment technique (flags, rifles, and sabres), contemporary/lyrical dance, and leadership-character building. Our approach will ensure every camper feels more confident and skilled to go back to their home guards better than ever! Campers will work toward learning a routine to share with families at the end of the session.

Color Guard campers will focus on:

  • Building self-confidence
  • Technique & vocabulary
  • Toss variety
  • Body projection
  • Integrating movement with equipment
  • Artistic & creative expression
  • Team-building & uniformity
  • Having fun & making friends!

In addition to the daily Major and Minor classes, color guard campers will participate in community building activities every evening, including performance opportunities, campfires, scavenger hunts, concerts and more!
