Important Band Camp Info 2023

Dear Band Families,

Our students are about to embark on a great adventure! Band camp at NC Wesleyan is just a few short days away. Please review the following information to ensure that your student is ready for camp and arrives on time.

ARRIVAL Sunday, July 30th Students will have staggered arrival times at camp to ease congestion at our centralized check-in location. All members will provide their own transportation to and from camp. Please report to the Dunn Center on the campus of NC Wesleyan as follows:

Seniors / Juniors / Leadership 2:00pm
Sophomores / Freshmen 3:00

Packing list can be found HERE

Be sure and read our Band Camp Rules & Policies HERE

CHECK-IN Upon arrival, each band member will move with parents through a series of stations before receiving their dorm key for move-in.

PRACTICE PREVIEW Wednesday, August 2nd 6:00-8:30pm You are welcome to join us at our evening rehearsal on Wednesday night on the main field (you’ll see the tents!) Your camper will not have much time to visit with you during rehearsal or before moving onto our evening activities – but you may get a hello & a hug if you’re lucky! Bring a chair and bug spray and enjoy watching these amazing students work at their craft.

PERFORMANCE & DISMISSAL Friday, August 4th 7:00pm Students will perform on the main field and will be dismissed at the conclusion. Don’t forget your chair and bug spray! In the event of wet weather, we will move the performance to the Dunn Center. A notification of changes to the venue will be sent out via REMIND.

HELP NEEDED! If you can help our busy (and tired) camp chaperoned team clean up after our final meal and closing banquet on Friday, please come to the Dunn Center lobby at 6:00pm. A few extra hands will make all the difference and free up camp volunteers to help prepare students for their special performance. Or please consider staying for a while after the final dismissal to help us load the trucks!
