Band Camp – 2014!

Hello OHS Band Families!

We hope everyone is enjoying the summer and has OHS Band Camp on the schedule. Band Camp starts on July 17th for Freshman, New Members and Leadership from Noon to 5 p.m. on both Thursday July 17 and Friday July 18 with our Registration for ALL members at 6:00 and Mandatory Parent Meeting at 7:00 on July 17th.  Full Band Camp for new and returning members is scheduled for the weeks of July 21st and July 2ith.

Camp is Monday through Friday noon to 9p.m. We are in need of chaperones and donations. Now is a great time to get involved! OHS Band is made up of incredible students and staff, and we have the most amazing and fun group of parents and volunteers. Come and get to know the other parents and be inspired by how hard the staff and students work to make the show a success. A key to the success of the OHS Band Program is the involvement of the parents and boosters. PLEASE consider joining us for band camp or any of the committees listed on the website.

If you could please go to the new sign-up sheet and fill in the times you would be available to help.

Sign up sheet can be found here.

If a slot you are interested in volunteering for fills up please send me an email – we always like to have back up. And remember parents are always welcome to watch from the stands and any rehearsal!

Below is a file you can print about Chaperoning and what we will be doing. Also below is the survival sheet that was each student at ice breaker.
