Sultana Band Camp 2017
The smell of asphalt, sunscreen and sweat, the mouth and body fatigue of playing, spinning or drumming for countless hours, the sweltering heat from the sun, the heat waves emanating from a distance....
Yep, it's that time again - BAND CAMP!
Band Camp this year is two weeks long, Monday - Friday (percussion/guard camps on Saturdays), and is held at Sultana High School. Week 1 is July 24-28, and Week 2 is July 31-August 4. Before Band Camp officially starts, there will be a New Member Day on Saturday July 22 from 8am-1pm for all new members of the program and all student leaders. There will be a lunch break each day of Band Camp from 12p to 1pm, and also a dinner break from 5pm-6pm (when days go longer than 6pm). For safety and supervision reasons, students are not permitted to leave campus during that time, so pack your meals and snacks for the day! Also, district policy requires students to have a Physical completed and Athletic Card on file. These can be obtained from the front office during summer, or in the band room during band camp.
We will once again be holding physicals for our band students here on site, performed by Dr. Griffin. These will be held one day during Band Camp, day to be determined. The cost is $20, and proceeds benefit the Sultana Band. Students are strongly encouraged to have their physicals completed on this day. Additional documents and release forms will be available shortly on the website, and passed out the first days of Band Camp.
Band Camp will culminate with a Parent Performance on Friday August 4th after the 6pm parent meeting to show off their progress from Band Camp!
Mark your calendars! Tell a friend! Invite new members! It's going to be another fantastic season!
A Note on Physicals:
School District policy requires that each student participating in an after school activity that involves physical activity have a Physical Athletic Card on file with the school. These physical forms have been mailed out to students, and can also be obtained in the Sultana Athletics Office or the Front Office. Athletic Cards are due by the end of Band Camp, and are good all year long!
