This year will see some changes to the band camp schedule, starting with registration all the way through the parent preview. While some things will change to suit the needs of the Band, one thing that will not change is the commitment to excellence embodied by the students, directors, staff and volunteers.

Registration/Check-in: Monday, July 27th - 6:00pm - 8:30pm
Students and parents will be greeted at check-in tables in the Hall of Fame (door #11). Parents will receive their blue checklist and proceed through the check-in process. At each table the checklist will be approved. Once you have completed the registration process, you and your student may depart.

Financial Contract and Payments: Marching Pride fees of $700 are due and payable in full at the time of registration for Band Camp.  Financial payment plans are available, and arrangements must be in place prior to participation at Band Camp. A spot in the show cannot be guaranteed for students who do not have financial arrangements in place or are delinquent on payments.  Please contact your Performing Arts office if you'd like to make take care of your payment/payment plans prior to registration as long lines at the financial tables are possible during registration.  Lawrence Central:  317-964-7550 or Lawrence North:  317-964-7551

Required Forms: At the Mandatory Parent Meeting in June all members received a packet of forms. Many of you turned in these forms that evening. If you have not yet turned in these forms or have lost them, you may download and print them using the links below. If you have these forms filled out ahead of time it will make you and your student's check-in much faster. If you have already filled out and turned in these forms there will be a record of that in the Performing Arts office.
