2014 Racine Scouts Add Satellite Camp In Kentucky
Responding to a large number of inquiries from the Northern Tennessee/Southern Kentucky region, the Racine Scouts will be holding a satellite audition camp in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, the weekend of February 28-March 2. The camp will take place at Hopkinsville High School.
With the addition of three new staff members, who also teach color guard at the high school, interest from brass and percussion students there, along with others in surrounding areas, has led to the corps leadership creating this late-season camp.
“This outpouring of interest from Hopkinsville, as well as from the surrounding cities and towns,” said corps Program Coordinator, Bill Clark, “made the decision to hold a camp there a no-brainer. I believe we’re getting more interest from as areas like these as a direct result from the corps making finals, last year.”
During the 2013 season, the corps began a test program of holding smaller satellite camps in two locations – Racine, Wisconsin, and Jacksonville, Florida – designed to make it easier for kids to attend closer to where they live, and less likely that they quit before the summer. For the 2014 season, Liberty (Houston), Texas, and Hopkinsville, Kentucky have been added; with hopes of expanding this concept in future years.
