All students in high school band are required to attend band camp in preparation for the upcoming school year. A typical day of band camp includes learning music, basic marching fundamentals, and drill for the pregame and halftime shows (plus plenty of fun with friends). It is critical for students to be present for this instruction. The learning that takes place at camp prepares us for the start of the school year and cannot be replicated later.

Please note that work conflicts, babysitting, and drivers’ training are not excused absences.
Students should clear the dates for band camp with their summer jobs as soon as possible! If you need a ride to or from band camp, make arrangements with a friend or contact Mr. Walker. If you are sick during band camp, please contact Mr. Walker as soon as possible.
