K-State Bands hosted their annual Leadership and Auxiliary Camp from July 11–14. According to K-State Today almost 80 high school drum majors, section leaders, percussionists and color guard members were on campus to learn drum major conducting, leadership skills, percussion techniques and guard techniques. The students represented 36-high schools from Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.
Students participated in several activities that helped strengthen their leadership skills, teamwork development, work ethic, communication, conflict resolution and fostering a thriving and positive culture. The camp was process-driven with the goal that each student would come away with the knowledge and confidence necessary to become stronger leaders within their own band programs.
The camp concluded with a performance on July 14 in All Faiths Chapel. It was open to all students currently in grades 9-12.
