" We have been with Marching Auxiliaries for the past 18 years. Our camp experiences have always been both educational and fun. Personal attention is a priority with MA. Unlike many directors, I have patronized both their university location camps and private camps. Both are exceptional! Our field shows have been award-winning because the MA staff is extremely talented. Thanks MA!"
