NHIMA Band Camp 2022

This NHIMA band camp was a two-day camp consisting of one ensemble, that of a full concert band. There were five full band rehearsals, one set of sectionals, one session set aside for free time each day, and a final evening concert. There was one ensemble at this band camp, with no breakout sessions as is usual in a longer camp. A free time period was available for each of the two days.

There was a great deal to do during free times. The venue is centrally located so there is easy access to shopping and exploring. In addition, the Chautauqua schedule of activities is full, so there were opportunities for entertainment and involvement.

Lakeside Chautauqua is located on the Marblehead Peninsula in Ohio on the southwestern shore of Lake Erie. It is one of only a few continuously operating Independent Chautauquas that persist into the 21st century. It was formed in 1873 by members of the Methodist Church and remains a church-affiliated vacation resort. Lakeside is a cultural and educational movement that thrives as a place for all people to grow through lifelong learning. The entire community, approximately one square mile in size, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Here are some photos of the members who attended the camp.
