Please mark your calendars for our 2013 band camp. The students will attend a mandatory pre-camp at Montour High School on Monday, July 29 – Friday, August 2, 2013. The hours are approximately 8 am until 2 pm.
Then the following week, the students will stay at Slippery Rock University for mandatory marching band camp from Sunday, August 4 – Thursday, August 8. The students will leave Montour on Sunday at approximately 1 pm for Slippery Rock. Students will return to Pittsburgh on Thursday afternoon before dinner. Then on Friday, August 9, the students will have a mandatory practice on our own field from approximately 8 am-2 pm and then have our performance preview for families at the Montour Stadium Friday evening at 7 pm. We are making some small changes to our SRU camp to keep the pricing about the same as many rate increases have occurred. We are also planning to have our traditional “mandatory fun” activities during the afternoons each day to give the students a break from the heat of the day. This will give them a chance to practice more in the evenings to take advantage of the cooler hours. Our SRU senior night dance activity will move to the evening of Wed., Aug. 7.
We will begin registration for band camp during the month of April. The cost for one student for the week this year is $320.00. A $100 non-refundable deposit along with registration and permission forms will be due by Wed., May 22. The balance of $220 will be due by Monday, July 8. Payment is required in order to participate in band camp and this season’s marching band. In the event of withdrawal from marching band before July 23, you will be refunded the $220. If your student withdraws after July 23, there will be no refund. Payments and information packets received after Monday, July 8 will require a $50 late fee. Deposits and payments may be deducted from your student account or the direct payment of a check payable to MBPA is accepted.
Please mark your calendars with the above dates to avoid late charges. We are looking forward to an exciting and productive 2013 marching band camp at SRU. Please feel free to contact either Mary Ann or Diane with any questions.
