Band Camp Survival Guide

Band Camp is one of the most productive parts of the schoolyear as a band program. It is important that you come prepared for band camp and come prepared to work. This guide (pg 8) will help you be prepared and, therefore, successful.

Band camp is hard work, but you will find that working hard and then seeing the results of that hard work is something to really be proud of.

This is a great time, especially for parents/guardians new to the band, to talk with seasoned parents of band students, ask questions, understand band camp, the season, competitions, football games and volunteer opportunities you can be involved in. Light snacks will be served.

Immediately after the Meet and Greet, we will have a Chaperone and Pit Dad Meeting. Everyone interested in helping as a chaperone or pit dad, please attend this meeting to learn more about the when/where/how and responsibilities for these important roles.

Please attend...involvement is the only way we can make this busy organization work.
Don't sit back and watch, we need you!
