Leadership Weekend Experience

Music Students (Band, Choir, Orchestra): Interact with student leaders from across the country at one of the premier two-day leadership programs created specifically for you! Immerse yourself in a non-stop, interactive, leadership learning lab you simply will not find anywhere else. Discover why we develop more student leaders in the music education world who truly make things happen and take the lead. Start your camp week by adding the Leadership Weekend Experience.


Do you want more of your students to participate positively in your program? Can you imagine what would happen if all your student leaders constructively brought to life the leadership lessons you talk about? At Music for All’s Summer Symposium we turn talk into action, involving your students in many unforgettable, hands-on activities for teambuilding, problem solving, and leadership learning.


Did you know research shows pre-college leadership experiences predict most of the variance in college leadership outcomes? That means when students learn to lead in high school, their success in college leadership opportunities increases significantly. Give your student the positively life-changing experience of developing more of their future long-term leadership potential at the Leadership Weekend Experience.

Fran Kick and a fantastic faculty of student leadership educators will inspire students to Kick It In® and Take the Lead. Having worked with Fran for over two decades, Music for All shares in his passion and mission to develop student leadership in all students rather than just let it happen with a selected few.

What are students saying about Leadership at America’s Camp?

Your leadership philosophies are fantastic & really inspired me to share these leadership values with others.

Info was new and interestingly presented. You get information here that you won’t hear anywhere else.

Eye-opening. So many simple points put across and illustrated so that they really hit home.

Parent/Booster Institute

Music for All’s parent/booster training and advocacy programs and resources are key elements in Music for All’s vision to be a catalyst to ensure that every child across America has the opportunity and access to participate in music making in his or her scholastic environment.

What Should Your Child Bring?

June weather in Indiana is often unpredictable. Historical averages for this area range from 60°F-90°F and often include high humidity. Please keep that in mind when packing for camp.

See the Packing Lists

Staying in Touch with your Student

The Music for All Headquarters staff is unable to receive and deliver messages to students by phone, unless an emergency requires immediately delivery. If you wish to speak with your child during the week, plan your calling schedule before your child leaves home.

Supervision and Health Info

Your child’s safety is our utmost priority. While at camp, your child is required to attend all classes, meals, concerts, and nightly floor meetings, where attendance is taken.
