Marching Band Away Camp Information

posted Jan 27, 2016, 5:33 AM by S Lee

It's never too early to start thinking about Marching Band Camp and we want to give you a head's up on some important changes regarding our 2016 Away Camp session. 

  • First, the dates are all set and next year Away Camp will be August 1st through 6th at Camp Ohiyesa.  
  • Second, next year's Away Camp will be a little different as we've decided it's necessary to have parent volunteers stay in the cabins with the students.   There will be 9 cabins and we're hoping to have 1 to 2 parents per cabin, each night.  It's not necessary for every parent to stay the whole week so even if you can only stay 1 or 2 nights, please consider volunteering!  We understand how hard it is to take time away from the family and work, but keep in mind that overnight volunteers are only needed from about 8pm till about 7am or 8am.  Think about it, if 18 parents each took one overnight shift we'd be all set for the week!

Remember, we rely on the help of parents to keep this program up and running so please consider taking just a little bit of your time to help out at Away Camp next summer!
