Band Camp

August 19-23, 2019, 5 - 9 p.m.
Capistrano Hall

The Marching Band is typically called upon to being give performances early in the semester. As such, rehearsals start before the regular first day of school - welcome to Band Camp!  Do your very best to attend as much of camp as possible. This season promises to be a very exciting year!

For camp, you need to wear a t-shirt, shorts, and TENNIS SHOES (no cowboy boots, flip flops, high heels, etc.). Bring snacks for yourself (if desired) and water (we recommend reusable water bottles). These rehearsals will be both indoor musical and outdoor musical and marching/movement rehearsals, and you need to dress appropriately. And please, bring sunscreen! Be sure to arrive a little early on the first day to fill out any necessary paperwork with the band.

Please continue reading below for additional information on instrument check out, parking, and non-enrolled students participating in the Marching Band.

If you have any conflicts or problems with band camp, or if you have additional questions, please contact Mr. Sabado.
