Band Camp 2021 Information –

  • Band Camp starts at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 5:30 p.m. We will be starting and ending on time everyday so please make sure whoever is bringing and picking you up, gets you here on time and picks you up on time. Remember… If you are on time then you are late…. If you are early then you are on time!
  • Summer Attire – Wear black shorts, a white t-shirt (We will write on the T-Shirt with Marker), closed toe shoes to march in (No-open toe shoes!), comfortable socks, and a wide brimmed hat (We will be out in the hot sun during peak heat). Also, you will need to bring a change or two of socks, underwear, and shorts as you will sweat and march in wet grass. We do not want you to track in wet grass clippings so we will remove our shoes after the morning rehearsal outside. Trust me… you will want a fresh clean pair of socks to wear!
  • Bring a great attitude! The directors and the staff strive to keep things as positive as we can and we expect everyone to else to do the same!

The medical form must be turned in the first week of camp. The form is needed so we can seek medical help for your child in the event of a medical emergency and yes it sometimes happens! We will have notaries here after rehearsal during band camp for your convenience.
