Alan Keown’s Oregon Drum Camp

Drum Camp is, normally, a week filled with intense learning, fun activities, and the making of new friends from throughout the west coast.

The focus of our 33rd Annual Camp will be rudimental drumming and front ensemble playing by choosing one track or the other. This is accomplished through a highly structured curriculum unlike that of any other percussion camp in the nation.
