Band Camp


Our annual band camp sets the Blue Star Regiment up for a successful season. Students attend daily and learn the music and the drill for the competition show and school events.

Attendance at Band Camp is mandatory for students wanting a spot in the Blue Star Regiment performance shows.

Q: When does my child tryout for the Blue Star Regiment? A: There are no tryouts. Being there on August 14 means they are in!



THINGS TO BRING

Members of the Blue Star Regiment often rehearse outside. Be prepared with the following items:

  • A friend! Yes, even if they don't play an instrument - its ok!
  • Water jug or large water bottle
  • Sunscreen
  • Hat
  • Running or walking shoes (no flip flops, heals, etc.)
  • Instrument



QUESTION ANSWERED

When can my child tryout for the Blue Star Regiment? There are no tryouts. Being there on August 14 means they're in!



SCHOOL INSTRUMENTS

Check out for school instruments starts at the first rehearsal, and will also be assigned after lunch on the first day of Band Camp.

Flutes, clarinets, and trumpets usually run out quickly. If there is not an instrument available, students are encouraged to try a new instrument like trombone, baritone or french horn. These instruments will be easy to learn after learning a woodwind instrument.  We do not own enough alto saxophones to check out. Be adventurous and prepared to try something new and exciting!



LUNCH

Lunch takes place on campus.  For safety reasons, students are not allowed to leave campus in the middle of the day to buy food. The parent boosters serve food to those members that purchase a Lunch Card. Watch your e-mail to reserve a Lunch Card. The boosters (BSRIMA) will contact you through our email server (Charms) with options.



AUXILIARY (Dance and Flag)


Band Camp is for you too! This is where the entire Blue Star Regiment starts to learn out competition show.



PERCUSSION (Drums)

The drum line is being placed on June 1st with the students that have attended the clinics. New percussionists attending Band Camp on the first day will be placed in an appropriate place alongside students who have been attending May and summer rehearsals.
