ATTENDANCE IS REQUIRED ON ALL DAYS THAT APPLY TO YOU.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND BAND CAMP?

OFFICER AND SECTION LEADER MEETING: Those who have been elected as
officers or appointed as section leaders need to attend for discussion of
camp, plans for the season, and review of basics. Only those who attend
will be teachers for New Marchers Camp.

1ST HOUR PERCUSSION CAMP: All those who are planning on being members
of the drum line or pit percussion need to attend. 5th Hour members will
only attend the first four days (New Marchers' Camp Session I & Session II). 1st 
Hour percussion will continue through the 5th. Our drum line instructors and the drum majors
will run this camp. Instrument assignments will be made during the first day
of this camp if not before. Do not miss!

NEW MARCHERS' CAMP: This is for anyone who will be marching with the
group for the first time. Student leaders, under the direction of the
Field Captain, will teach the basics of South's marching style.  Staff will
run music rehearsals. New Marchers' Camp Session II will overlap Regular
Marcher's Camp for two days so that the entire group can rehearse together
and the pre-game show can be learned. Any freshmen in 1st hour or new upper-
classmen will be expected to continue through the 5th.

1ST HOUR BAND CAMP: All members that are 10, 11, or 12 graders need
to attend as well as 9th graders who earned a spot in 1st hour through
audition. Rehearsals will focus on building individual skills and
perfecting the new music. Basic marching skills will be reviewed. Our goal
is to completely learn the Pre-Game show and get well into the contest show.

BAND CAMP FAQ'S

WHAT IF I CAN'T COME?
Work is not an excuse from any scheduled band practice or performance.
School sports and activity conflicts will be worked out to the students
benefit between Mr. Adams and your coach/sponsor. Very few activities
interfere with camp. If you must miss any part of camp, inform Mr. Adams
verbally, by email through this website, and with a parent-signed note (so
Mr. Adams wont forget). If you have a trip or other major conflict, you
will be aided by the Junior Drum Major and your section leader so that you
can catch up on what you have missed. It is your responsibility to catch
up. The group depends on the work of its individuals.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO CAMP?
Always have your music, pencil, and instrument. First hour also needs a
sturdy 3 ring binder with about 30 page protectors. Wear comfortable clothes
(no sandals on the marching field-wear tennis shoes. This is a
requirement!) It will probably be hot! We highly recommend that you bring a
thermos of ice water, sun glasses, a cap, and sunscreen. When outside, we
will take regular breaks for rest and water. Water is a much better choice
than sports drinks. Soft drinks and energy drinks are just plain bad for hot
outdoor work. Don't drink them.

LUNCH, I NEED FOOD!
During the lunch break, most members go to the many nearby fast food
restaurants or home. Those of you who can't drive and dont want to go
home for lunch will find upperclassmen and especially section leaders very
helpful in the ride department. Drivers: make sure all laws regarding how
many people can be in your car are followed. Use lunch as a time to create
new friendships and renew old ones.
