Each year the Grandview Heights HS 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 21 through 26, 2019. Daily rehearsal will occur the week before, at the high school.
NEED HELP PREPARING FOR BAND CAMP?
The 2019 Band Camp Newsletter, available here, has a handy Packing List on page 7. (Late breaking news, Wittenberg has confirmed that the pool will be open and available for our use - so pack that suit and towel!) While you're reading the Newsletter, you might also want to stop by page 8 and review Camp Rules and Expectations with your student. Lots of other helpful camp info contained within those pages as well. Check it out!
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 is available here.
Band Camp FormS
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 2019 are the same as last year:
$250 for each student
$225 for additional students in same family
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 2019” in the memo line.
NOTE that financial assistance is available. The BPA is committed to ensuring that all members are able to attend Band Camp. Please contact Mr. Herrmann for additional details.
