Banff Army Cadet Summer Training Centre

the Bands

The camp over the years had a senior band representing the camp, the band was chosen from a corps, it was by virtue of the decision, the best band in the country. Competition was fierce, many corps could have qualified, but only one was chosen each summer until 1982 when composite bands were created for the camp.
