A digital copy of the 2018 Band Camp cover letter can be found here. Included in this document is a "What to Bring" list.
2018 Band Camp is August 12-22
The Pioneer Spirit Marching Band Camp will be held on August 12-22 (drumline begins August 10 and guard and officers begin on August 11). This time is an important part of training and preparation for our fall season. During these ten days, students learn approximately a month's worth of material and leave camp with a working knowledge of the season’s music and field show. Rehearsal will be every day, rain or shine. Bring your instrument, sunscreen, shorts, socks, cool shirts, and good sneakers. We do not march barefooted or in flip-flops.
You will be responsible for obtaining a lyre to hold your music on your instrument during rehearsals, two pairs of band shoes (one black and one white), and the t-shirt that will be worn under your uniform. We will take measurements for shoes and uniforms during band camp.
Band camp is hard work, but we have fun together, too. Aside from rehearsals, the camp also includes team-building activities in the evenings and a group cookout at the conclusion of camp. Band camp will conclude Wednesday morning before Freshman Orientation so that incoming freshmen will be able to participate in all of the Freshmen Orientation activities and events.
