    This year band camp will be on the following dates:
    August 12 - 15  AND
    August 19 - 22
    The times will be from 9:00 am - 12 noon.
    I understand that this is a longer commitment than what has been in the past, so if you have vacation plans, it's not a problem to miss one of the weeks.
    Please let me know if you have any questions.
     
    Reminder: If your student needs to miss an event or a practice,
    the PARENT must contact me.
