    (with some reminders)

     

    Generally speaking, camp will run on the following schedule each day:

    8am- Roll Call

    • meet in Small Band Hall in sections for section leaders to take roll
      • The band hall will open each morning at 7:30 am to allow students to enter. Please do not drop off students before 7:30am.
      • Students should arrive 5-10 minutes early to all meetings and rehearsals (“early is on time, on time is to be late”)

    8:10- Day Meeting

    • A brief overview of the day’s goals and objectives as well as reminders and general announcements.

    8:30 to 11:30 Marching Outside- (everyone but front ensemble)

    • Students will need to come dressed in the morning ready to go outside.
    • Students must wear appropriate apparel for marching band which includes:
      • Light, loose fitting (and preferably moisture-wicking) clothing.
      • Tennis shoes with socks
      • We encourage sunglasses.
      • We encourage sunscreen.
        • It is suggested that they arrive with sunscreen already on.
      • ALL students going outside MUST have a hat. Regardless of section.
        • Yes, this includes the color guard.
      • ALL students need a LARGE (at least 1/2 gallon is recommended) portable water cooler from which they can drink. The water coolers must contain WATER ONLY. No sports drinks are allowed during rehearsals.  
      • Here is a link to a recommended-type water cooler: WATER COOLER
      • Water MUST be prepared before coming to the band hall—while refilling water will be allowed during the day, preparing water before the first morning block is not allowed. There is simply not enough space or water stations available.
      • Students are not, under any circumstances, allowed to share water or any consumables due to health and safety precautions.

     

    11:30 to 1pm- Lunch

    • Students may stay at the band hall during lunch, but will be required to eat in the tiled common areas of the building.
    • Students may bring their own lunch but will need to be sure to bring in a lunch box or something similar as refrigeration is not available in the band hall.
    • Students may have their lunch brought to them—but please keep in mind the nutritional needs of band camp.
    • We highly discourage fried foods, salty foods or foods high in fat during camp meal breaks.
    • We encourage: Whole grain pasta, rice, lean protein, fruits & vegetables and of course…. WATER, (although a sports drink will be fine during meal breaks).
    • Students must have their own food and own drink due to health and safety precautions.
    • Students that have a valid driver’s license are free to leave campus for meal breaks
    • Students that do not drive are allowed to leave campus with only the following:
      • Parent/Guardian

    Again, this is the typical daily schedule.  However, with the current weather pattern, it is important that students be flexible as we may change what we do during each part of the day depending on the weather.  Please be flexible!
