Band Camp

Band camp is starting soon! Remember to dress in comfortable clothes and tennis shoes. No flip flops! Bring sunscreen and plenty of water.

Students are on their own for lunch on these days and may either leave campus or bring their lunch and eat on campus.

Evening practices are Aug. 19 & 21 from 6 p.m. To 8:15 p.m.

The Picnic Show and Booster meeting will be in Aug. 21.

Band Camp Tips

 Some helpful band camp tips for new band students:

Wear tennis shoes and athletic clothing. You're going to be on your feet, marching, and it will be hot. You cannot march in sandals or flip flops.

Wear sun block and a hat for protection from the sun. 

Bring plenty of water. Some people like to wear a Camelback because it holds so much water and you don't have to set it down on the sidelines. Water bottles also will be for sale in the band room. But please, try to save the planet from plastic bottles and bring a refillable bottle.

Students are on their own for lunch. Students without transportation can bring a lunch and stay in the band room, or they can walk to Wendy's and buy lunch. Wendy's is the only restaurant within walking distance.

Don't skip days of band camp. You'll get behind in learning the music, and you'll leave annoying gaps in the marching lineup.

Finally, have fun. Don't be embarrassed if it takes you a while to catch on. The older students have been where you are, and they will help you learn what to do.
