The Kilties will hold a Weekend Kamp on February 4th and 5th at Gilmore Middle School, 2330 Northwestern Avenue in Racine, WI.   Potential members are invited to attend this event along with veterans and alumni.  Lodging is available and the corps will provide lunches both days.  Membership is open to those from 16 years old and upward with positions open in brass, color guard and percussion (battery and front ensemble).  The weekend will include an orientation session on the Kiltie organization, skill and talent evaluations in group/section settings and section rehearsal sessions learning the 2017 production.   Apply online here to receive further information. The Kilties are a world renowned all-age coed organization founded in 1934 and focused on education and mentor-ship.

Housing can be arranged by the corps. Kilties will never change an audition or Kamp Fee.  Want to learn more about the Kilties' member experience? Click here to read our FAQ section.

Since The Kilties founding by Mr. Raymond Vance in 1934, it has been the goal of the organization to offer the finest in design, instruction and teaching; in addition to being a positive and uplifting experience for the membership.   2017 is no different as The Kilties have assembled a stable of highly experienced and qualified arrangers, composers, designers and educators with the sole purpose of offering a competitive, fan-friendly and member-friendly production for the 2017 performance season. Here is our Design Team for 2017.
