These few days afford us an opportunity to accomplish what would take approximately twenty-two days, or over five weeks, on our regular rehearsal schedule. Therefore, it is imperative that no time be wasted and that students come to the camp prepared.  Attendance is mandatory. Grades will be given for Camp. The band camp dates will be discussed with the students in March before Spring Break. We are asking that all students and parents plan accordingly for the good of the band during this time. Communication and commitment is vital for the band program success and student experience. If there are conflicts with the dates they will need to be communicated by Friday, May 8th.
