2023 BAND CAMP DATES:
Saturday July 22 – Wednesday, July 26
The Pride of the West believes that a strong show starts with a successful band camp. As such, attendance at Band Camp is mandatory for students to receive a marching spot in the show. Drill spots are assigned at camp, so students simply must attend to earn a spot. Students who do not attend Band Camp will not receive a spot in the show and will be placed on “alternate” status.
Band camp is held just prior to school starting at the end of summer break, normally starting the last weekend of July. It is five days in duration with students arriving on Saturday and returning home the following Wednesday. The camp is staffed with a high chaperone to student ratio. The cost includes transportation, accommodations, food, and marching show shirt.
