Band camp? What's that?
Each year 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!
Band Camp this year will be at Wittenberg University, in Springfield, Ohio, from July 26 through 31, 2020. Daily rehearsal will occur the week before, at the high school.
NEED HELP PREPARING FOR BAND CAMP?
The 2020 Band Camp Newsletter will be available in April, and 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 parents who volunteer their time in support, most especially those who come spend the night in the dorms each night.
Second, if you are one of the overnight chaperones, all the information that you need about where, when, what, and why you are needed will be available before Band Camp week.
Band Camp FormS
Print, complete and submit camp paperwork and payment by June 26, 2020. The Band Camp Newsletter and camp forms will be available on the "Documents" page of this web site in April. They may be dropped off in the GHHS office, or mailed to the Band Parents Association, P.O. Box 12580, Columbus, Ohio, 43212.
Parents and other adult family members are DESPERATELY needed for many volunteer roles during band camp. Please visit the signupgenius and volunteer your time.
*If you haven't completed a Grandview Schools background check recently, you will need to do so to volunteer for Band Camp (or any other band activities). Please visit the Grandview City Schools volunteer page for more information. A current list of approved volunteers is also available there.
Band Camp Payment
The Band Parents Association strives to keep individual student's costs for band camp as low as possible. Your camp fees cover meals, lodging, transportation, recreational activities, and instruction for five days and nights of camp.
The camp fees for 2020 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
Checks should be payable to the Grandview Heights Band Parents Association, and may be dropped off in the GHHS office, or mailed to the Band Parents Association, P.O. Box 12580, Columbus, Ohio, 43212. Please note your student’s name and “Band Camp 2020” in the memo line. Online payment will also be available beginning in April - check back for more details.
