Hello Everyone!

We hope you all are having a restful summer.  Marching Band is just around the corner with Rookie Camp beginning on Wednesday, August 9th and Full Band Camp starting on Monday, August 14th.  A detailed schedule for camp will be sent in a later email, however let’s get everyone familiar with the time commitments for the duration of camp.

Band Camp is split into 2 sections: Rookie Camp is for anyone who has not previously marched with the Edison Eagle Marching Band.  This include those who will be in the pit percussion as well.  Freshman and Upperclassmen all fall into rookie camp if you have not previously been apart of the Edison Eagle Marching Band.  Full Band Camp is the entire marching band.

  • On each day please bring this materials as needed for yourself (these are not required but are suggestions to help make camp the best experience for you):

    1. Sunscreen
    2. Jug of Water
    3. Hat
    4. Sunshades
  • Things that are required:

    1. Tennis Shoes (no Crocks, Open Toe Shoes, Flip Flops, Slippers, etc. If you would not run a marathon in them, you shouldn’t march in them)
    2. Pencil
    3. Mini Notebook
    4. Flip Folder
    5. Lyer
    7. Your own LUNCH

Also ,below there is a link for two forms.  Both forms are needed either before or on the day you arrive at band camp/rookie camp.  You cannot be outside in the heat without both of these forms so please fill them out, print them out and bring them with you to hand to Mr. Mitchell to keep on file for you.      - Emergency Care Form    - Medication Authorization Form
