A few things for you to know as well:
  • Wear sunscreen
  • Wear sunglasses
  • Wear a hat
  • Wear light colored, athletic clothing (no jeans)
  • Bring your camelback/cooler FULL of water
  • Wear tennis shoes (no sandals, flip flops or high tops)
  • Wear socks (you will get nasty blisters otherwise)
  • Bring your instrument, accessories and ALL distributed music.
  • We know that some of you will need to stay up at the Band Hall throughout the day. No problem! There will be a staff member present at all times during the breaks.
Lastly, the staff is fully aware of the oppressive heat that we have been experiencing. Please know that we will make every possible effort to make rehearsals a safe environment for the students. This, however, requires a good deal of participation. Be absolutely sure to wear appropriate, light colored clothes, have a hat and to have PLENTY of water at your disposal. The staff strongly recommends the purchase of a “camelback” water system that allows you to carry water on your back and drink it at anytime. Camelback or not, each band member must bring an ample water supply to each rehearsal.
And double lastly – each band member must arrive at band camp having eating breakfast!! I cannot tell you how many kids get sick each year simply because they haven’t fueled up in the morning. Parents – please help us with this an require that your son/daughter eats a good breakfast before arriving at rehearsal. If we partner together – we can definitely keep the kids safe and having fun!
