Attendance at the Emerald Brigade Band Camp is required for all marching band students. During this week, students are introduced to the field show that will be featured at halftime during home football games and performed at tournament competitions.

The traditional Family & Friends Concert will be held on the evening of Friday, August 16 at 6:00 p.m. in the N-Quad to close out Band Camp week. Everyone is invited. Be sure to bring a lawn chair and some snacks!

What should you bring to Band Camp? Here are some recommendations, but be sure to check with your Section Leader:

  • Sun block - bring plenty and plan to re-apply often during the day
  • Sun hat with good coverage (see the expert campers below)
  • Sneakers (NO sandals or flip-flops)
  • Lots of water - one gallon in an insulated drink container isn't too much!
  • NO soda, but Gatorade is great
  • Lunch and nutritious snacks
  • 3-ring binder for music and a pencil
  • Dot book (ask your Section Leader where to get one)
  • Your instrument!
