Band Camp

August 4, 2021 @ 8:30 am – 8:00 pm

General information about Band Camp

Band camp dates are Aug 2-7 in UA, locations include Tremont, Hastings and UAHS (check with squad leaders). Aug 2-6, band camp will start at 8:30 am with students expected to be ready to play at that time, so they should plan to be there prior to 8:30 am. The Band Boosters will provide lunch each day. Official band camp activities end at 8:00 pm. Snacks will be provided, and while dinner will not be provided most evenings, squad leaders will plan section dinners (going to restaurants or carrying out food, e.g.) for the students. On Friday, Aug 6, dinner will be provided for all students. At 8:30 pm, evening activities, some of which may be off-site, will occur until 10:00 pm Monday-Thursday and until 11:00 pm Friday. These evening activities are not mandatory but are strongly encouraged and provide a great opportunity for the kids to get to know each other and bond as a band. The band directors and parent volunteers are working hard to make this week as close to “normal” band camp for the kids despite not being able to hold band camp off-site this year.
