About This Quiz

Camps are the American institution when you think about it. When we were young, that's what we thought of when it was time to hang up the backpack and enjoy fun in the sun, cabins, and sports. But did you know that band camp was especially interesting? 

Think about it: watch "American Pie" again, and it'll become clear to you. Those band members with their "instruments" definitely had hidden tendencies and wanting to break out and just have FUN! They just couldn't. They were "disciplined." They were so focused on the arts when really all they wanted to do was party.

Needless to say, band camp remains one of the coolest adventures on the planet. It even beats adventure camp, and if you have never been a part of band camp, you should find some way to make it happen. If by chance you've been in band camp, you might have to really think on the kind of cool cat you were with the instrument you played. Thankfully we have this quiz you can take! Let's see just how accurate we are in determining not only what kind of kid you were in the cabin, but also what instrument you really were fond of playing!
