Band Camp: What to Bring

On the first day (Sunday) please wear appropriate clothing & shoes for the trip to camp and marching practice. Pack your instrument, enough clothing for 3 days and 3 nights (check the extended weather forecast to help with clothing selections), 6-7 pairs of socks, an extra pair of comfortable shoes for marching, swim suit, rain coat or poncho, 3 towels & washcloths, toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, comb, deodorant, insect repellent, sunscreen, sunglasses or a hat, sleeping bag, pillow, and any other personal items you may need. Do not bring stereo equipment, expensive jewelry, expensive cameras, etc. Finally, please keep all luggage to a minimum! Each band member should bring spending money for a lunch stop on the bus ride to camp (this is usually a fast food restaurant), and they will also need at least $8 (if possible send singles) to buy pizza at the Pizza Party on Tuesday night.
