Band camp is mandatory and students will not be able to perform with the marching band if they do not attend. Students need instruments, sunblock, a water jug, hats, towel, and should wear athletic attire (shorts and sneakers).
Students need to complete the required physicals and medical forms before band camp.
Students will be contacted by their section leaders at the start of summer and music will be distributed for them to practice and learn over the summer in preparation for band camp.
Dinner break is from 430-530pm during band camp. Students can bring food, go out to eat with friends, or get picked up for dinner. We encourage everyone to spend that time together eating with their friends and sections. Parents can drop off food in and leave it on the table by Mr. P’s office.
