2023 WAYJO Band Development Camp Appeal

WAYJO supporters have the opportunity to make a tax-deductible contribution to a weekend learning intensive in the bush for our brand-new 2023 band members.

The camp structure provides a safe and educational environment where our bands will have the opportunity to engage in an array of activities. With music at the forefront, but social and recreational activities equally important, our brand-new Band Development Camp is designed to enrich the lives of young people on their way to a successful, happy, musical, and engaged adulthood.

Be part of WAYJO’s inaugural camp by contributing a tax deductible donation before June 30.

What are we doing?
We will take all 54 band members, plus WAYJO staff, Music Directors as well as specialist tutors and mentors away for 2 nights and 3 days to Nanga Bush Camp for a weekend of bonding, rehearsing, workshops, and fun experiences.

Why are we doing it?
To offer professional development for our band members, both as musicians and as arts professionals, and enrich their experience by providing memorable learning experiences in contrast to familiar rehearsal or home practice environments. Living together in log houses in a peaceful bush setting provides an environment of focus for unique activities, interactions, and challenges.

What are the benefits for the bands?
We wish to strengthen WAYJO band and staff bonds thought relationship building. The non-competitive environment of living and participating with likeminded individuals in the WAYJO community fosters both the development of relationships, as well as willingness to try new things, and builds confidence.

How much does this cost WAYJO? 
Accommodation, transport, meals, staffing & activities are estimated to have an outlay of around $20,000. Our aim is to raise around 50% of this through this campaign.

What can donors receive?

  • Your name on WAYJO’s website (if you want it)
  • Invitation to WAYJO’s 2022 end of year event open rehearsal
  • Invitation to WAYJO’s 2023 season launch VIP function
