Davenport Central Instrumental Music
Marching Band Members and Families,
Here is the information for camp for the next two weeks as well as some updates to the schedule.
The times for band camp, just incase anyone has forgotten, is 9am to 5pm. Please arrive early so that you are ready to start on the field at 9am. Students should be dropped off and picked up on the Main Street side of the building at door 5E. Students who are driving to camp should park in the parking lot North of 12th street and can enter the building on the West side at 11W. There is a lot of construction happening so we are going to avoid the main building. We will be dismissed around 4:40 each day so students should be picked up by 5 at the latest.
Students need to bring a lunch. Students may not leave campus to get lunch. Students will be able to keep their lunch inside in the band room where the A/C is on full blast. There is no microwave or fridge available so please plan accordingly.
Here is the list of what students will need for band camp:
