Band Camp is in Session
The members of the band and color guard will be immersed in preparing for the upcoming season. In addition to learning and practicing the basics of correct marching, this is when we learn the specific drill moves for our field show. We'll rehearse the music as a group and in sections. And the best part is we will have a lot of fun getting to know each other in the process.
Band camp can be hot and long but if you properly prepare for this event you will have a lot of fun. Band camp is the most important part of our season each year and attendance is very important. All students who march are expected to attend every day of band camp. If you have a medical condition of any kind please inform the director before we begin any outdoor activities.
