The Band Camp Newsletter is Here!

The awesome band camp newsletter complete with drop off and pick up times, directions to camp, a packing list, uniform info, dates and deadlines.....pretty much the whole shebang!  Click the link HERE or to the left under Summer/Fall Marching Band section.

We are also looking for pre-camp and band camp adult volunteers.
*For pre-camp we just need a few helpful folks that can watch from the sidelines and assist with things like snack and water, sitting with kids that may need a break, running back to the band room for miscellaneous stuff, etc.  We've broken the days into shifts to make things a little more manageable.
*For away band camp we need moms and dads that can help out during the day (in much the same way) and then spend the night to make sure all the kidlets are tucked in safe and sound every night. Even if you can't stay the whole week, we'd love to have you for a day or two if you can help out!
Here's the link to the signup for pre-camp and band camp volunteers:

If you can help out at the away band camp, there's a few more things you need to know:
*There will be a parent chaperone meeting on Monday August 11 at 6:30 in the band room. Let us know if you can't make it to the meeting but still want to chaperone....we'll be sure to fill you in on all the good need-to-know info!
*Chaperones for band camp will also need to submit a clearance from the Department of Human Services (background check).  The form is linked to the left under Summer/Fall Marching Band. Fill it out and take it to a local DHS office along with your drivers license and they will run your check and give you the clearance form to turn back in to us.

There are two local DHS offices:
19700 Hall Rd. Ste. A Clinton Twp., MI 48038 (this location will run the report while you wait)
21885 Dunham Rd. Ste. 7 Clinton Twp., MI 48036

2014 Marching Crusaders Band Camp

Band camp is a big deal!  A great bonding experience & intense workshops molded our Crusaders into contenders last summer.  Looking ahead to a new camp site near Rochester & anticipating some talented freshman coming in, a new marching show will require a lot of hard work beginning very soon.
To the left on this page you'll find reference links for all the info.  Below are some reminder dates to keep in mind and get on your calendars.
  • Pre-Camp (at LCHS-N) is August 11-15 from 1:00-8:00pm
  • Band Camp (at Camp Echo Grove in Leonard, MI) is August 17-22
