The 20th Annual Savage Marching Percussion Camp

Watch the Camp Promotional Video!

Welcome to the Savage Marching Percussion Camp Website!

We hope you will find all the information you need and register to join us for a fun and incredible week of becoming a better percussionist and a better YOU!

We are incredibly excited to return to camp for the 19th Annual Savage Marching Percussion Camp. This will be a week filled with intense learning, fun activities, and the making of new friends from throughout the Carolinas and beyond.

We will be returning to our home at Camp Pinehill Retreat in Bennettsville, SC. This is just over the border from Rockingham, NC.

The facilities include large air conditioned cabins, a large air conditioned dining hall, swimming pool, great shady rehearsal spots, private lake, amphitheater and beautiful meeting spots both indoors and out.

The camp philosophy and curriculum will be based on a camp Matt Savage has taught in Oregon, with Alan Keown, since 1989. It is a time tested and proven approach that makes this camp one of a kind!

The #1 goal of the camp is of course to improve drumming and musicianship skills but there is also a strong focus on developing life skills, a strong work ethic, meeting and getting along with new people, respecting each other, and making good life choices. We like to say that after attending "Savage Camp," every student will be "changed" for the better.

We are expecting this to be the largest camp to date so register soon to hold your spot!
