These camp dates involve learning basic marching techniques, music, and practicing for our fall marching show, as well as our pre-game. These camp dates will include music rehearsals, warm-ups, sectional practice, marching fundamentals, and drill work, etc...  If you do not attend Our Band Camp, Week 1(Percussion and Color Guard),  Week 2 and Week 3,ALL BAND MEMEBERS,  a spot IS NOT  guaranteed for you in our fall show. (Communication with the Director is very important.)

Food: snacks and drinks you will need to provide; lunch will be provided again this year, from the school summer lunch program.

Clothing:  Wear light colored clothing, light weight clothing, shorts, t-shirts, tennis shoes (required), and an extra pair of socks. Students can also wear a hat to cover their heads and faces from the sun. Water bottles, sunscreen, sunglasses, snacks, and extra clothes for inclement weather are also good ideas.

There are 5 home football Games and 5 away Games (may not travel to all the away games), there are also numerous festivals and competitions we attend on Saturday’s and you are required to participate in all of these. Parades are also a part of what we do.

There is a fee which we ask for and is not covered under the fee waiver program of Livingston Academy, this is to be paid by all band and color guard members.
