We will be outdoors everyday so prepare accordingly.
· Wear light comfortable clothes and tennis shoes for marching. Keep it school appropriate.
· Bring a water bottle and wear sunscreen – this is incredibly important!
· Hats and Sunglasses are welcome and encouraged for outdoor rehearsals.
· Bring money for lunch, we will take a 45-minute break every afternoon for lunch.
· Bring your performance equipment (instrument, flag, music etc) everyday
· Marching Woodwinds and Brass will want to have a Lyre (pronounced liar) & Flip Folder (holders for music) every day. Music Stands will not be available outside, so this is important.
· Percussionists will want to have a binder for music and charts everyday
· Colorguard will want to have a folder for choreography notes and charts everyday
Do not let the first day of camp be the first time you go outside. Get acclimated to the heat before coming to camp.
Tubas can use a generic flip folder
