The Kilties, Wisconsin's only all-age (16-to-adult) competitive drum and bugle corps, had a very successful open house weekend and are now looking forward to their first full rehearsal kamp weekend, January 10th and 11th, in Racine, WI. It's not too late to join the ranks of the 2015 Kilties. There was much excitement after the open house weekend, and the corps is encouraged by the membership numbers and product. The Kilties' commitment to bringing a world-class instructional environment to its members and putting an excellent product on the field for its fans was apparent, even at the open house!
Kamp will be held at Gilmore Middle School, 2330 Northwestern Avenue in Racine, WI. Members begin arriving at 9 a.m. for registration and a light breakfast. Rehearsal is held beginning at 10 a.m. Lunch is also provided by the corps. The day concludes at 7 p.m. Sunday also has a provided breakfast from 9 to 10 a.m. Rehearsal goes from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m, with again lunch being provided by the corps.
Housing can be arranged by the corps. Kilties will never charge an audition or camp fee. Want to learn more about the Kilties' member experience? Click here to read our FAQ section.
