MIHS Band Camp

Band Camp 2020

August 17-21, 10am-5:30pm  <-- Reserve this week!

MIHS Stadium

MIHS Band Camp is a great way to (re)connect with friends and our band family while it is an important instructional activity critical to your student's success in the classroom and in the marching band season. If your student cannot attend part or all of Band Camp for any reason, your student should speak with the directors.

What to Expect

Each day your band student will participate in a variety of activities and exercises to get ready for marching band season. They will  learn to work together seamlessly as a team. There is spirit wear each day which ranges from 'Fashion Disaster' to 'Color Wars'. 

Typical Schedule

Monday:  Hot Dog Lunch

Tuesday:  Uniform Fitting after band camp

Wednesday: Uniform Fitting after band camp

Thursday: Band camp BBQ

Friday: Freshmen parent meeting and parent show (near the end of band camp)

What to Bring

Each day every student will be asked to bring with them their instrument, music (printed from Charms), a music lyre, a pencil, plenty of water (a medium water jug is appropriate), lunch for midday break, and a great attitude. We will begin playing the very first day.

Please read the detailed email from the band directors for details about band camp, the uniform fittings, band camp BBQ, Friday performance, music to download from Charms, and more.  If you do not receive this email by the Thursday before band camp, please contact our band administrator.

Volunteer Help Needed!

We, of course, could not do this without the support and talent and time from countless band parent volunteers.  This all works because of each of you.

 

We need help during Band Camp week!

 

On the volunteer page, we will post how you can help.

We will need help cooking, serving, and cleaning up for the hot dog lunch. We need to feed 300 kids in 15 minutes so they can get back to work quickly.

We need help fitting the 300 kids into their uniforms which includes the jacket, bibs, shakos, dinkles, and more.

We need help putting on our band camp bbq which is a ton of fun for our entire 5th - 12 grade band community.
