Band Camp Information
July 22-26, 2019 at Berrien Springs High School
Wear comfortable clothes and athletic-type shoes. Dark colors absorb sunlight; so wear light colors to keep your body cooler. NO SANDALS!
Bring a pencil, small notebook and a highlighter for marking music and drill.
Band Camp is a closed campus - you may not leave for lunch or other reasons.
You will need a lyre and flip folio for your instrument. Freshmen are provided flip folios by school. If you lose it after your freshmen year, you’ll have to purchase a new one.
Bring a water bottle. We supply water on breaks, but you need your own bottle marked with your name.
Please be on time. “To be early is to be on time, to be on time is to be late.”
Be excited-this is going to be the best marching season yet!
