Park High Summer Band Camp

Camp dates: August 7 - 9, 2017
Description:

The Park High School Summer Marching Band Camp fosters leadership, marching fundamentals, and performance skills in all areas of the high school marching band. Participants receive intensive instruction from clinicians on an individual and group basis. The age range of campers is those entering the 9th grade through 12th grade who are enrolled in the first semester of Wind Ensemble and Concert Band.

Most clinic sessions take place outdoors, so participants must come prepared with sunscreen, cool clothing and athletic shoes. The camp finale is an performance on the Park High Football Field the final day of the camp. All camp participants perform at this exhibition. All campers are encouraged to live on campus during the camp to take full advantage of evening sessions and planned activities. Students will sleep in the gym and will be supervised by several overnight chaperones (see sign-ups below). Campers must provide their own musical instrument (excluding percussion, sousaphone, and baritone saxophone).
