3.      A regular school lunch is provided for students for free every day.

4.      Please look over the TIPs below to ensure your student is prepared for camp.

TIPs for a successful summer band experience: 

            - You need to be hydrated.  That means that you must drink lots of water THE DAY BEFORE camp starts so that you will not dehydrate.  Drinking water during camp is part of it, but you must be hydrated properly at least 24 hours before camp starts.  Drink up!!


- A NUTRITIOUS breakfast/lunch – avoid carbonated drinks – I recommend lots of fruit (bananas are BEST), water and lots of food with carbs and protein.  You will burn this off quickly in the hot sun...


- A BIG water container – we will have water available, but you need to bring your own container.   You will need to drink at least 64 ounces of water each day during outside rehearsals to keep yourself hydrated.


- Your instrument and music folder (provided) for rehearsals – don’t forget the trusty pencil!!


- A HAT – You will need protection from the sun, and will be thankful you have a HAT.  


- Remember the sunscreen.  This is very important, so you don’t sunburn and become ill. 


- DO NOT wear sandals, flip flops or boots – you will need SNEAKERS/TENNIS SHOES for these rehearsals.  Sandals will hurt your feet.
