Raven Band Camp 101
Attendance at all band camp dates/times is expected. Please make every effort to arrange vacations, doctor’s visits, jobs, family time, etc. at a time other than band camp. IT is important that we accomplish as much as possible during band camp so we can be on track as we head into the school year.
One of the most important skills needed to be a successful high school student is punctuality. This is particularly important for all band activities. If something should cause you to run late, call your section leader ASAP BEFORE you are supposed to arrive so that the officers, staff, and director know where you are.
Perhaps most important of all is to come to camp with a positive attitude ready to try new things!!! Being a part of a high school marching band is one of the most positive experiences you can have – be prepared to work hard, be productive, and to have a great time getting better!
