Welcome to the Matt Savage Drum Camp Website!

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

The 17th Annual Matt Savage Marching Percussion Camp is a week filled with intense learning, fun activities, and the making of new friends from throughout the Carolinas and beyond.

We are excited to announce a new camp location and will be enjoying the incredible facilities at beautiful Camp Mundo Vista! Camp Mundo Vista is a beautiful retreat perched in the tree covered hills above Ashboro, NC.

Each cabin sleeps 14 campers with 2 councilors and are air conditioned with bathrooms and private showers. The facilities also include a large air conditioned dining hall, a huge swimming pool, great shady rehearsal spots, an amphitheater with a 50 mile view 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!
