Band Camp Schedule & Packing List


Band camp will be held at Michigan Christian Youth Camp, 820 N. Lake George Rd, Attica, MI, August 7th thru the 12th. Please remember, you must pick your student up from camp or arrange a ride for them. The students will be performing a segment of their show on Saturday at 12:00pm. After the performance, they will be dismissed. However, before the student can leave a parent must sign them out with their chaperone at their cabin. At that time, you will also receive your raffle tickets for our “Win the Band” raffle. There are no bleachers at the camp. I recommend that you bring a chair if you would like to sit to watch the performance.

Make sure to label everything (including shoes) with your child’s name. Remember to pack all items for the summer uniform. The students will be wearing this for the performance on Saturday. Only ONE suitcase and ONE carry-on bag will be allowed. All grades have a designated check in time. Please do not come before your specified time. Anyone coming early will not be allowed to check in until their allotted time. Hopefully by following this process check in will run smoothly and efficiently. We will board the busses and leave by 10:30am. Students will NOT have access to the band room on Saturday, August 12th. Bring all equipment to the next rehearsal on Monday, August 14th from 6:00pm – 9:00pm.
