One Week Until Band Camp

Trojan Band Clean Up Day

Saturday, July 17 from 8:30AM to 11:30AM we are in need of volunteers to help us get the band room ready for band our students to return on July 19 for band camp. If you are available, please sign up so that we know to expect you. There are many tasks that we need help with, the more help the better.

Water Donations

We use thousands of bottles of water each marching season and ask each student to please either donate 4 cases of water or $10. We will begin collecting the water on July 17 at our annual Trojan Band Clean Up Day or any day during the week of band camp. Waters can be delivered to the front lobby and we will ask a volunteer to help move them to the designated storage area behind the band building.

2021 Band Camp

Band Camp begins NEXT WEEK!! Hopefully by now you have been getting outside a little bit? At least in the mornings and evenings. Also, drink WATER. Parents, hold your child accountable. They will feel better and potentially complain less if they acclimated a little to the heat and have already began drinking water. Thank you for your support in keeping your child healthy and safe.

Both weeks are Mandatory for all students.

July 19 – July 23 • 8:00AM – 9:00PM Band Camp Week 1

We look forward to having extra sectional coaches to help our students memorize their music and learn their drill this week. Lunches will be provided by the school. Students are welcome to bring their own lunch or receive one for FREE from the school. In order to receive a free lunch, we need you to please register using this link. UPDATE: We have been able to secure lunch sponsors for Thursday and Friday of this week! More information will be shared next weekend.

July 26 – Jul 30 • 1:00PM – 9:00PM Band Camp Week 2

Parents, thank you again for making your child drink water and getting them 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 at 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!
