2021 Band Camp

Band camp is quickly approaching! It is important that students are acclimated to the weather and begin hydrating now. According to the Mayo Clinic, if your urine is colorless or a light yellow, you may be drinking an adequate amount of water. The darker the color yellow, the more dehydrated you may be. To prevent dehydration it is a good idea to drink a glass of water with each meal and in between meals, before – during – and after exercise, and anytime that you feel thirsty.

July 19 – July 23 • 8:00AM – 9:00PM Band Camp Week 1
July 26 – Jul 30 • 1:00PM – 9:00PM Band Camp Week 2

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!
