What you need:

  • Drink plenty of water before leaving home.  There will be water breaks, but those breaks will not be enough to keep you hydrated throughout the day!
  • Spend some time outside every day beforehand.  Marching Band is an outdoor activity, and you need to acclimate yourself to keep from getting sick or injured.
  • Wear sunscreen.  Bring some with you to re-apply in the afternoon.  You will be in the sun during camp.
  • Play your instrument a little bit every day.  It will be difficult for you to learn music if you're having to be re-taught how to put the instrument together.  
  • EAT breakfast but do NOT drink milk.  It will make you sick when we go outside.  Protein (eggs/some sort of meat) and carbs (oatmeal, toast, grits, biscuits, etc.) will fuel your body and help sustain you until lunchtime.  Pop tarts will not.
  • Wear shoes that lace up.  Do not wear any kind of sandals or any other kind of slip-on shoes.  Be sure to wear socks to minimize foot blisters.
