About WAMPA

The Woodstock Academy Music Parents’ Association  (WAMPA) is the booster club for music students of Woodstock Academy. Being a member of WAMPA shows you value the Fine and Performing Arts programs at Woodstock Academy and are willingly to support the Woodstock Academy Music Department either financially or though volunteerism.

Being a current member of WAMPA will allow you to participate in meetings and vote on expenditures and officer elections. WAMPA Meetings are 5:30-6:30 pm on the first Wednesday of each month in the Bracken Memorial Library at Woodstock Academy. If you are unable to attend meetings, there are plenty of volunteer opportunities! Even if you have no extra time to spare for volunteering or meetings, your membership dollars are still much appreciated.

Donate to WAMPA

Time. Money. Instruments. Applause. We graciously accept whatever you can give us!

Where do the WAMPA raised dollars go?

  • Music Department supplies: recent examples include drum covers for the Drumline ensemble, and purchase of materials for a costume closet designed and built by a parent volunteer.
  • Funding for the annual year end Music Department Picnic.
  • Summer Music Camperships.
  • Financial Assistance for students who would otherwise be unable to go on adjudication trips.
  • Senior scholarships for students continuing music study. Click here for application
