Welcome to the Anne Arundel County Public Schools Summer Music Camp!

The staff and managers of the 2014 AACPS summer music camps would like to express our thanks to all for a wonderful experience. Your determination as adventure campers and growth as developing musicians was impressive and inspiring. We expect that all students will take this shared experience and new knowledge back to their friends and music ensembles, acting as leaders and providing motivation for others. As we move to make this experience more challenging and rigorous, we hope that all students will fully apply themselves to all music activities in the coming year in preparation for another successful week in the summer of 2015.
