Allen Band Booster Association funds numerous summer camps every year, including Drum Major camp at University of North Texas and Colorguard Captain camp at University of Texas - Austin.
Last year ABBA provided funding for 5 music clinicians for the Band, including one at the middle school level. Also, 3 Colorguard techs that came in daily for the entire summer and fall season. Throughout the year, guest clinicians and techs come in and supplement what the directors teach our students. That's countless and invaluable hours that help our students become better performers.
