Each Marching Pioneers season begins with our annual pre-season camp.  The purpose of the camp is to teach musical and visual technique, as well as the field show, parade and concert material for the upcoming season.  The camp lasts one week, ending just before Labor Day weekend and is required of all marching members of the band.

Details

Uniform checkout will occur during camp.  Times will be announced. Your only fee is a $100.00 charge.
