Are you associated with this organization?
I will probably retire this June. Would they accept a 60 year old former orchestra principal with a California teaching credential and 35 years teaching experience that can teach and play in concert bands, 20 years with symphonic orchestra, musical shows (pit stuff), show band, extensive Oktoberfest experience, and jazz bands but is lousy with jazz improvisation and knows how to get some sleep when on the road in a bus.

This camp sounds like a good summer vacation activity and I can live in my own motorhome.
