Band camp is when we put together all the music for the year. That is stands music, pre-game music, tail-gate music, parade music and of course show music. We will do a different show every week, so we need time to learn music and marching technique. We spend a lot of time on marching fundamentals and moving together as a unit. Every day we have a competition between all sections, it is called "zucchini" competition. At 6 p.m. all sections perform for the rest of the band that days assignment with the criteria given. This includes drill maneuvers and music memorization in sync. At the end of the week is "final zucchini" where the champion of "zucchini week" is crowned.

Members of the band with on campus housing will be charged a $110 fee for housing during camp which will be added to your semester housing bill. Lunch will be provided, dinner is on your own with sections..
