Summer Band

Important Summer Band Info

Summer Band is required for all members of the Clear Creek HS Band.

Students are expected to be on time and ready to work for each session. It is a good rule of thumb to be present no later than 15 minutes prior to the start time each day. Students will be expected to be in their spots with all materials exactly at 7:00am to hit the ground running.

Students should bring/wear:

  • Instrument (unless provided by the school)
  • Water Jug (with water)
  • Comfortable "Cross-Trainer" Type Shoes
  • Plain White T-Shirt - (Note: as light as possible!)
  • Hat and/or Sunscreen
  • Pencil and all Distributed Music

Students will not be provided lunch during these camps. All students should bring or arrange for their own lunch.

It is critical that students eat a healthy and somewhat light breakfast every day. Safety and health are our number one priority and the lack of proper hydration and/or nutrition is one of the first reasons students don't "feel well."
