Sultana Band Camp 2018
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 also on Saturdays), and is held at Sultana High School. Before Band Camp officially starts, there will be a New Member Day on Saturday July 21 from 8:30am-1pm for all new members of the program and all student leaders. Week 1 for all members is July 23-27, and Week 2 is July 30-August 3. 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 unless with parent and a provided note, 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 forms 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 TBD. 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 few days of Band Camp.
Band Camp will culminate with a Parent Performance on Friday August 3rd after the 6pm parent meeting to show off the band's progress from Band Camp!
Mark your calendars! Tell a friend! Invite new members! It's going to be another fantastic season, and we can't wait for YOU to be involved!
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!
