We start off our Marching Band Season and the new school year with BAND CAMP.
During Band Camp, the band prepares for the half-time show and new members are taught marching band skills. It is hard work and yes, it will be HOT, but the band works together and students will form lasting friendships and memories.
A typical day for band camp is sign-in, morning drills outside on the practice field, break into groups for inside sessions with clinicians, lunch, afternoon sessions with clinicians, followed by an end-of-day practice outside on the practice field. The hottest parts of the day students are inside, but it is still going to be very hot and students must stay hydrated.
In order to be prepared for band camp, the following items are REQUIRED each day:
♦ WATER, WATER, WATER...Bring a 1 gallon or half gallon jug with spout (50 % gatorade/50% water is better) ♦ SUNSCREEN...Minimum SPF 30 ♦ HAT AND SUNGLASSES...Be original!!! ♦ CLEAN, DRY TOWEL ♦ COOL, LOOSE-FITTING CLOTHING...Shorts and a light colored shirt ♦ SNEAKERS/ATHLETIC SHOES AND SOCKS ♦ SHOW MUSIC...Given out on first day of band camp ♦ FLIP FOLDER WITH LYRE (if needed- ask your section leader)...Available registration night for $5-$15 ♦ LUNCH AND SNACKS...Food packed in a cooler to keep up strength and stamina (On Wednesday 8/2, a free lunch will be provided courtesy of the Band Boosters).
