          SUMMER MARCHING CAMP

          Thanks so much for your patience! The Summer Marching Camp schedule is presented below.

           PLEASE NOTE: AS STATED IN THE COURSE SYLLABUS FOR BAND AND COLOR GUARD, SUMMER CAMP ATTENDANCE IS REQUIRD AND GRADED. If you have questions, please contact the Kazin’s as soon as possible. The school year is starting later, but the football and competitive season is not. We will need excellent attendance at ALL summer camps in order to tackle an ambitious competitive show. Excessive absences during summer camps will not only result in a grade reduction, but possible removal from the drill for the competitive show.
