Band Camp 2018 is only 1 day away!!! We are very excited to continue our hard work
and preparations for the upcoming season. Our goals are to chart Shows 1, 2, and 4 as well as Pregame; plus beginning the memorization process for all 2018 music. Pre-Camp has shown the staff and students what they are capable of achieving and I have no doubt we will continue all the way until the end of October.
Below are a few last minute items regarding Band Camp. Please read carefully.
Students (and parents) should consult the Band Camp Packing List on page 7 of the Band Camp Newsletter. http://www.grandviewhtsband.org/uploads/3/7/0/9/370912/band_camp_2018_newsletter.pdf Don’t forget your sunscreen, insect spray, water bottle, and rain jacket!
Must be in original containers with student's prescription information. Bring to camp check-in in a Ziploc bag; be sure to label the bag with your student’s name.
CAMP CHECK-IN: SUNDAY, JULY 22, 2018
All luggage, backpacks and musical cases will be searched when students check in for band camp. If any illegal substances are found, the police will be called and the camper will face a students’ code of conduct violation.
The student handbook rules and regulations will be followed, and all mishaps at camp will be reported to Mr. Brown, the GHHS Principal.
Be reminded that band camp is an extension of the high school class. Students are expected to behave accordingly. In order to effectively search the luggage and load the truck properly, the campers should arrive at the following times:
11:45AM Percussion & Tuba Instrument Load In Only (Students may leave until their report time.)
Check-ins will take place in the GHHS Gymnasium. Enter through the Fairview Ave. doors.
**Students will not be permitted to leave once they are checked in**
The buses will leave at 2:00PM. Lunch is not provided, so students should eat prior to their arrival.
RETURN FROM CAMP: FRIDAY, JULY 27, 2018
The band will depart Wittenberg University at approx. 11:00AM and should arrive at GHHS just after noon. I will send a departure/arrival notice via our Remind account as well as Twitter. Here are the details to follow:
