It’s that time of year again. Please read through for tips and information about Band Camp.  Students are to be dressed to march every day. It is encouraged that they bring their own water bottle and sunscreen as they will be out in the sun for quite awhile on some days. Check out the new Band Camp Checklist on the TJBP Handouts and Forms page!  The students will be provided lunch every day and at times additional snacks. Those on the drum line may practice at different times than the rest of the band. Visit the links below to sign up for donations for the lunches and to volunteer to work the lunches.

Please consider donating food for the Band Camp lunches this year.  The sign up below will take you to a list of items that will be needed on specific days.  Review the list and help out by bringing your donation to the TJHS Cafeteria by 9:00 am on the day you signed up for.  ***IMPORTANT***  PLEASE NOTE THAT BAND CAMP LUNCHES WILL BE SERVED AT 11:30am THIS YEAR SO YOUR DONATIONS WILL BE NEEDED EARLY!  Please drop off all donations by 9:15 am. Thanks!

Also, please consider signing up to work preparing the Band Camp lunches.  The donations are important, but equally important is the people-power necessary to bring everything together to serve 170+ people lunch each day.  Everyone is welcome to help. If all slots are filled when you are available, you may still come and help at a time that is convenient for you. Some days are busier than others. If we are done preparing or cleaning up early, then we can go outside and watch our band kids practice on the field.  Use the Doodle Poll below to volunteer your time on the days you are willing and able to help.  ***IMPORTANT***  PLEASE NOTE THAT BAND CAMP LUNCHES WILL BE SERVED AT 11:30am THIS YEAR, SO PLEASE BE ON TIME FOR YOUR SCHEDULED VOLUNTEER SHIFT.
