2016 Summer Band Camp

We are fast approaching the official "kick-off" to TCHS Summer Band Camp 2016 and we are looking forward to getting started.

 There are plenty of new faces as well as wonderful veterans! Please review some basic information below and let us know if you have questions!

 *Monday-Friday, August 1-5 from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

  • Lunch is from 11:30-1:00 -meet in the bandhall, but please drop students off at front, circle drive, not alley loading dock!
  • Lunch is "on your own" & can be brought to school or purchased off-campus. Eat a healthy breakfast & avoid excessive sugar/acid/milk/grease (many on-line sources for info) 
  • Wear light-weight, athletic-type clothes suitable for easy movement, as well as athletic-type shoes. Jeans and open shoes impede movement FAR too much for what we do... 
  • Bring a filled water jug (handled, insulated-type) w/ name on it! Please drink a full glass of water before bed and upon getting up. Please do NOT wait until perspiring to drink water! One vending-machine sized bottle is good for 2 water breaks & we'll take 20 in the first hour! 
  • Although we may not spend much time outdoors, initially, bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. We take our student's health & safety seriously! 
  • Bring your instrument and any & all music issued for highschool!

 On behalf of Mr. Larkin, our new Director of Bands, Mr. Teed, our new Director of Percussion, & Mr. Hurley, our new Director of Colorguard, we cannot wait to get started building the 2016-2017 edition of the Cougar Band! Go Cougars!
