Rookie Camp occurs in May and provides an opportunity for upcoming band students to learn basics, fundamentals and meet the band staff and student officers. Rookie Camp takes place at the West Hall Band Room right after school from 4pm-6pm each day. Incoming freshmen will meet many new people in the band during Rookie Camp which helps them feel apart of the community at West Hall High School before school even starts. All incoming freshmen and other new members should plan to attend Rookie Camp. An informative parent meeting always occurs to close out this exciting time together! Check the band calendar for specific dates.
Band Camp occurs during the last two weeks in July. It takes place at West Hall High School. Pre-camp runs Wednesday-Friday (9am-4pm) and Band Camp occurs the following week from Monday-Friday (8:00am until 8:00pm).
This is an opportunity for students to work with the expanded staff to review basics, fundamentals, and learn their role in the upcoming season’s marching show. Camp is also an opportunity for students to build friendships with fellow students that last throughout the year. Incoming band members will meet many new people in the band during camp which helps them become part of the community at West Hall High School before school even starts. A fee for food and instruction is required for camp. Band membership is dependent on attendance and participation at band camp.
