How do I prepare for band camp?

Get outside and enjoy the heat between now and the first camp. THIS WILL MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE. Pace yourself and be careful not to overheat. Also, start walking or jogging to get yourself in better cardiovascular shape. Drink plenty of water every night before camp. Eating healthy and knowing good nutrition habits are a huge tool to success.  You need to take care of your body so that we can all be strong.

Get in Shape (on your instrument).  Play a few scales, lip slurs, long tones, or whatever you need to do to be ready to play long hours.

 

What should I bring to band camp?

Water container.  This is absolutely the most important item to bring, besides your instrument.  You will be outside and can quickly dehydrate without proper water intake. Incoming freshmen will be supplied with a water container. Returning students can use the water container they were provided their incoming year. Additional water containers will not be provided if lost.

Instrument. If you are borrowing an instrument it will be assigned the first day of band camp. If you are not borrowing an instrument, be sure to check that your instrument is in working order.

Reeds, valve oil, or slide grease. 

Lyre and flipbook. These items are needed for stands tunes music. If you do not have a lyre or flipbook, you may purchase one from a local music store or online.

If you need reeds, valve oil, slide grease, a lyre, or a flip book,

The Music Man will be coming on *tba*

 

What should I wear?

Loose fitting clothing You should wear a pair of shorts and a t-shirt, and they should be light colors.  NO DENIM – it will trap the heat and only serve to make you uncomfortable.

Athletic shoes with socks Absolutely NO flip-flops or sandals for band camp.  We march.  We move.  You can easily hurt yourself trying to march in flip-flops or sandals.

Sunscreen/Chap stick with Sunscreen Band camp is NOT the time to work on your tan. That sunburn won’t feel good tomorrow. Remember to reapply every 2 hours or so. Apply chap stick that protects against the sun. Sunburned lips are not fun to play an instrument with, especially for brass players.

Hat You will be outside and will want to keep the sun off of your face as much as possible.

 

What should I eat and drink during band camp?

ALWAYS eat something and hydrate before outside rehearsals. Bring a nutritious lunch and snacks. Foods high in carbohydrates, such as cereal, bread, etc. are best. Fruit is also good. Try to avoid dairy products and meat (especially fried). These foods will make you nauseous when you are out in the sun. Drinks that have caffeine or carbonation should also be avoided. Water and sports drinks will work best.
