BAND camp 2018
August 6-10

Who:   Blue Star Regiment Members
Dates: August 6-10
Times: See schedule below
Place: North HS


Band Camp

Our annual band camp sets the Blue Star Regiment up for a successful season. Students attend daily and learn the music and the drill for the competition show and school events.

NOTE: Positions in the competition show are limited to 120 musicians this year. There are 145+ enrolled for the Blue Star Regiment, so attendance is needed to secure a position.

Attendance at Band Camp is mandatory for students wanting a spot in the Blue Star Regiment performance shows.

Q: When does my child tryout for the Blue Star Regiment?

A: There are no tryouts. Being there on August 6 means they are in!



THINGS TO BRING

Members of the Blue Star Regiment often rehearse outside. Be prepared with the following items:

  • A friend! Yes, even if they don't play an instrument - its ok! We have baritones and trombones to pass out
  • Water jug or large water bottle
  • Sunscreen
  • Hat
  • Running or walking shoes (no flip flops, heals, etc.)
  • Instrument



QUESTION ANSWERED

Q:
When can my child tryout for the Blue Star Regiment? A: There are no tryouts for band. Being there on August 14 means they're in!

Auditions for color guard and dance were in April. You may see Mrs. Schive to discuss your interest if you missed tryouts.



SCHOOL INSTRUMENTS

Check out for school instruments starts at the first rehearsal, and will also be assigned after lunch on the first day of Band Camp.

Flutes, clarinets, and trumpets usually run out quickly. If there is not an instrument available, students are encouraged to try a new instrument like trombone, baritone or french horn. These instruments will be easy to learn after learning a woodwind instrument.  We do not own enough alto saxophones to check out. Be adventurous and prepared to try something new and exciting!



LUNCH

Lunch takes place on campus.  For safety reasons, students are not allowed to leave campus in the middle of the day to buy food. The parent boosters serve food to those members that purchase a Lunch Card. The lunch menu and the purchase option is located at this link: PayPal Lunch Cards



AUXILIARY (Dance and Flag)


Band Camp is for you too! This is where the entire Blue Star Regiment starts to learn out competition show.



PERCUSSION (Drums)

The drum line is being placed on June 1st with the students that have attended the clinics. Clinics start on May 1, 3-4:30p. New percussionists attending Band Camp on the first day will be placed in an appropriate place alongside students who have been attending May and summer rehearsals.
