Band camp? What's that?
Each summer in late July, the Grandview Heights HS Marching Band travels to a nearby college campus for an amazing week of music, marching, fun, and friendship. We work hard, play hard and learn so much!
The 2021 edition of GHHS Marching Band Camp will be at Ohio Wesleyan University, in Delaware, Ohio, from July 25 through 30. Daily rehearsals will begin the week before, at the high school. Check back here for more details or watch your in box.
NEED HELP PREPARING FOR BAND CAMP?
The 2021 Band Camp Newsletter, available here, has a handy Packing List for you and your student to refer to. While you're reading the Newsletter, you might also want to stop by and review Camp Rules and Expectations with your student. Lots of other helpful camp info contained within those pages as well.
CHAPERONING AT BAND CAMP?
First of all, thank you SO MUCH. We literally could not have Band Camp without the many, many parents who volunteer their time in support, most especially those who come spend the night in the dorms each night.
If you are serving as one of the overnight chaperones, all the information that you need about where, when, what, and why you are needed are available here under "Band Camp Documents." Please note you will also need to complete the GH Schools background check if you do not have a current one on file. You can visit here for more information and ensure you are up to date.
LOTS OF VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
Parents and other adult family members are needed for many volunteer roles during Band Camp. Please visit the signupgenius, and volunteer your time as much as you can.
Band Camp Payment
The Band Parents Association strives to keep individual student's costs for band camp as low as possible. Camp costs include meals, lodging, transportation, recreational activities, and instruction for five days and nights of camp. The Band Parents Association subsidizes a portion of that cost through our fundraising efforts, and, as noted above, we are grateful to the Bobcat Boosters and the Grandview Heights Marble Cliff Education Foundation for their financial support of Band Camp 2021.
The camp fees for families for 2021 are as follows:
$250 for your first student
$225 for your second student in the same family
$500 CAP for families with three or more students
Please visit the Band Store to submit your payment. Payment is due July 7.
NOTE that confidential financial assistance is available. The BPA is committed to ensuring that all band members are able to attend Band Camp. Please contact Mr. Herrmann for additional details.
Band Camp FormS
The Band Camp Newsletter and camp forms are available on the "Documents" page of this web site. Please print, complete and submit camp paperwork by July 7. They may be dropped off in the enclosed front porch at 1419 Mulford Rd.
