August 6-10, 2018
All rehearsals begin at 11:00AM!
Band Camp is a mandatory five-day period in which the band learns its drill (forms) and music. Students are expected to be present all day, each day. This year, Band Camp runs from 11am to 6:00pm, with a lunch break as well as periodic water breaks. Camp runs regardless of weather, so be prepared for anything! Students may leave campus for lunch but are expected to be back and ready to play at the designated time.
The Friday of band camp is an special day. Students are required to stay at the school following camp, where they may change and rest. Our music parents provide a barbeque dinner for the students. After the barbeque, the band gives its first performance for family and friends (August 10, 7pm). All are encouraged to attend and see what hard work the students have been putting in all week. Band camp is considered part of the “audition process” for becoming a member of the band. This is a long, tiring week, both mentally and physically, but crucial to our success!!
What to Bring:
- Instrument & supplies
- Rain gear
- Lunch or lunch money
MAKE SURE STUDENTS HAVE A HEALTHY BREAKFAST EACH MORNING!!!!
