Summer Band Camps

Bands of 50 to 130 have found the facilities to fit their needs and continue to return year after year. To see how we can meet your needs for Band Camp 2016, contact us by emailing reserve(at) or call (812) 535-5131.

Your Own Lined Field - Full 100 Yards

We have facilities for two high school bands to attend camp each week. Each band has a dedicated, full 100-yard marching field that is professionally lined. The two fields are separated with plenty of distance between them so that neither band can be seen, and is rarely heard, by the other.


Scaffolding is erected at each field for the band directors. It is placed at the 50-yard line, outside the field.

Dedicated Inside Practice Spaces

Each band has indoor practice spaces near the practice field used. Each band's practice rooms are in a building separate and across campus from the other band. We provide one room large enough for the entire band and four other practice rooms. In addition, each band is free to find outdoor areas for practice near their own field and classroom building.

Meals - Air-Conditioned Dining Hall

Hearty meals are served by campus food service in the spacious O'Shaughnessy Dining Hall. Meals are served cafeteria-style with many popular food choices. Campers will especially like the ice cream bar, where they can dip their own ice cream cones or make sundaes from several flavors and toppings.

DJ/Karakoke Party

Arrangements are made for each band to have a DJ/Karaoke party in the air-conditioned Ballroom of Le Fer Hall. The night for the party is the choice of each band; the cost of the DJ is on us.

No Disruptions - Secluded Setting

Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College campus, located 5 miles northwest of Terre Haute, Indiana, is a gated campus with park-like grounds. There are few distractions on campus which makes it an ideal environment for hard work and attention to detail. The bands that have booked their place for 2011 have been coming here for many years.

Full-Time Security

Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College campus is a secure environment. There is a 24-hour, seven-day-per-week security force on campus. The Security Office is located in the basement of Le Fer Hall, the same building that serves as the residence for band campers. Security guards also patrol the campus, which makes security visible and available to our visitors.
