TECHNIQUE CAMP & BAND CAMP 2021

It’s that time of year when we start talking about the next band season!


Technique Camp:   July 19-23 & July 26-30: 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Band Camp:   August 2-6: 9 a.m. - 9 p.m.

Please add the dates listed above to your calendar for the 2021-2022 school year. Great student participation at these camps have always been an essential part of the Nation Ford Band’s repeated success throughout the years.

Technique Camp spans a 2 week period in which we start the process of musical and physical training for the season and has proven to be an extremely important part of setting up our students up for success. Rehearsal time is spent working on the fundamental techniques of performance, learning our music and visual package, and (perhaps most importantly) is the period where the band members create lasting relationships, meet new people, and establish the foundation of what will be the 2021-2022 Nation Ford Band!

Band Camp immediately follows Technique Camp and spans a 1 week period that serves as the “spring training” of what we do. Rehearsals last the full day (lunch and dinner are provided to the students) and this is where we put the marching band “production” on the field and assign a drill coordinate to each member. Great attendance is CRUCIAL during this week!

If you have any questions or concerns with Technique Camp or Band Camp, please contact me at your earliest convenience.
