We are working to finalize numbers for the marching show so that our drill writer can begin writing drill and can start on Day 1 of band camp learning the marching show.

2021 Band Camp

Next year our school year begins on a Monday, which does sound normal, but has not been the case for the last decade. When we began school on Thursday, it allowed us to overlap our pre-planning schedule with band camp with less critical conflicts. Our original plan to work around this was to back up band camp by a week, but we realized this appeared to start camp earlier and resulted in one less week of summer vacation for our band students. We value the time our students have with their families and do not want them to have to choose between a vacation and band camp, so we have decided to try a new schedule. We know this schedule may have some challenges as well but we hope that we can work through them together to make sure band camp is successful.

We will have a 8:00AM – 9:00PM camp from July 19 – July 23 and a 1:00PM – 9:00PM camp from July 26 – July 30. Please add these to your calendars now.

Parents, please make your child drink water all summer long and get outside. We will be mindful of helping our students acclimate to the stresses of marching band, but we will need your help to ensure that they do not arrive to camp partially dehydrated and make sure they are prepared to battle the sun.

We would also like to ask any parent who is active in a local church or works for a local company to consider reaching out to leaders to help with our dinners at Band Camp. Whether a small donation or feeding our kids completely one night, anything from our great community is welcome!
