Full Band Mini Camp
Band Mini Camp is required for all band and color guard members, and occurs in June on a Friday evening and full day Saturday.
Band Camp is when the band learns the music and show for the competitive season. In addition to the show music, stand tunes and parade music are prepared as well as marching techniques and drill sets. Band camp is mandatory for all marching band and color guard students.

With band camp starting Monday, it is important to have your student bring the following items:InstrumentMusicDot Book (if you don't know what this is, please wait to buy until after our meeting on Monday night)3 ring binder with bendable cover (this will also be talked about at the meeting)PencilSunscreenHatIce Water in a large water jugGatoradeSack lunch (remember: lunch is provided for the students on Monday and Tuesday, all other days the students need to bring a sack lunch)SnacksTennis shoes and athletic, light colored clothesEach student's time on the field is very important to the success of the band, so students should do everything they can do to ensure their full participation during rehearsals. The band will be outside most of the day, so students should be prepared to take good care of themselves at rehearsal and at home. While at rehearsal, students are expected to have water, sunscreen and a hat at all times. If a student should not have one of these items, they should see a staff member, drum major or section leader and we will be happy to make sure that they get what they need. At home, all students should start each camp day with a nutrious breakfast. Students should also start hydrating themselves at home, before and after rehearsals. Students should be proactive in preparing for time out in the sun. There is a lot that students can do to prevent heat related issues from happening.The annual parent kickoff meeting will be held in the Angevine Middle School cafeteria from 7:00-8:00PM. We will cover what to expect during band camp and this marching season. I will also talk about competitions and where we currently need volunteers. Additionally, we will have a few members of the boosters talk about communication, fundraisers and volunteer forms. Please do everything you can to attend this meeting! With the move to 4A, I want to ensure that the kids are set up for success and parents are a HUGE part of their success!
