Band Camp Concert


As a reminder, parents must pick up their student(s) from Band Camp on Saturday, July 23, at Pine Summit Camp in Prescott [map]. Attend the Camp BBQ from 11am-12pm if you've pre-purchased BBQ tickets, or bring your own lunch. The concert begins at 12:30pm. Please do not arrive earlier than 10:00am so that the students' morning activities are not disturbed. Transportation is not provided back to Tempe. Please attend the camp concert or make arrangements for your student(s) to ride home with another family.


Update: We've uploaded two documents that might be of interest: the Band Camp Daily Schedule and the Presentation [large PDF] from Saturday morning's meeting.

Attention new and returning marching band families: the Band Camp Meeting is Saturday, July 16. Attendance is mandatory. Schedule: 8:00am for new members and anyone needing to try on marching shoes and gloves for size; 9:30am for everyone -- parents and students.

Band boosters will be selling booster wear, collecting band booster membership fees, and taking glove and shoe orders. They will also cheerfully answer any questions you may have, just ask. Mr. DuPlessis and Mr. Werner will cover camp information, including student conduct expectations.

Transportation to the camp will be provided. Truck crews will begin loading the trucks at 7:30am on Monday. All students should arrive at Corona on Monday by 9:00am to start loading luggage (please review the packing list). Don't forget your hat, sunglasses, water bottle, and music binder. Students will depart for Prescott at about 9:30am. We will stop at Prescott Gateway Mall for lunch (bring money!) and will ultimately arrive at camp around noon.

Attend the 12:30pm Pine Summit Camp performance on Saturday, July 23. The BBQ will take place from 11am to noon. Remember that parents will need to provide transportation of their students back from camp [map]. We recommend bringing folding chairs and the like for watching the concert.

Music flip folders, replacement water bottles, and extra show shirts can also be ordered at this time also.
