Mission Statement

At the Camden Continentals, our mission is simple:
 
To entertain the people of Central New York while promoting  patriotism and a general sense of esprit de corps within our community.

In the mid 1800s, within the Town of Taberg, NY, Taberg Fife & Drum Corps was created under the direction Alanson White.

 

Mainly playing at political rallies and patriotic celebrations, in 1945 the band moved to Camden and renamed the Camden Continentals.  The corps now has an active schedule of approximately 15 events per year at parades and musters.

Directors over the years:

Founder Alanson White

Son Romaine White

Grandson Ray White  

Nephew Jeff Waterman

Jeff's son Randy Waterman
