Band Camp

What to Bring for Band Camp:

  • All equipment (where applicable): instrument/sticks/reeds/music/flags/poles/rifles/etc.

  • Music - always. Yes, this is listed twice. Always have your music and drill on you at all times even, if you have it memorized.

  • Pencils/highlighters for marking music

  • Water bottle/canteen for on-field practices

  • Bring a packed lunch

  • Eat breakfast before morning rehearsals

  • Comfortable and weather appropriate clothes. See school guidelines on dress code, check the weather, and plan accordingly.

  • Appropriate footwear: athletic socks and gym shoes - no flip flops, sandals, crocks, or dress shoes!

  • Hat(s) to block sun exposure (wind players especially should wear one to avoid sunburned lips which will affect your playing)

  • Sunglasses and sunscreen

  • Snacks - Any food items should be sent in re-sealable plastic containers or Ziploc bags. Food, other than water, is prohibited on the field.
