TAMUC Guard/Drum Major/Leadership Camp Info
We will be traveling with all 2023 Color Guard Members, Drum Majors, and Leadership Camp participants on Sunday to Texas A&M University Commerce. Students need to be at the HS by 4:30 am (Arrival may start at 4:25 am, please do not plan on arriving earlier in this instance!) Students will need to gather their equipment/instruments/needed materials and be ready to load. We will be departing as soon after that as possible!
We will make a couple of stops on our way up for snacks/bathroom/food. Check-in for the camp begins at 12 pm and we hope to make it there about that time. Students need to have all of their forms filled out. I will try and get in touch with any students that do not have the full set completed, but we do ask parents to hang around for a few minutes after your students arrival just so we verify we have all of the signed forms before you leave. There are three sets that make up 6 pages: Waiver General, Waiver/Indemnification, and Talent Release. We had mistakenly given out a few packets with only three pages before the end of the year. I know many students came by since then, but please help us make sure we have all of those. This link does contain all of the forms and a camp overview we were sent: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1SFxZbvaOG7dVZlVMNIFAZyzQlYLRLwjF?usp=share_link
After we check students in we will go to a neighboring area with a few fast food restaurants and students will be able to pick where they want to eat an early dinner. Their camps all begin at 5 pm.
There is a wide variety of things students do need to bring to this camp, including bedding, towels, and more. Please see this PDF for more: https://drive.google.com/file/d/181eaUTXstq6uLUB3Eibwge2POy-pBatG/view?usp=share_link TAMUC also has a list of things on their site at the very bottom of their Summer Music Camps page entitled ‘What to Bring.’
Wednesday night the Guard and Leadership Camps have a final performance at 7 pm at their ‘Memorial Stadium.’ The camps are concluded for the students at that time, but we will stay one more night just to be safe on our travel home. Thursday we will check out of the dorms and after a breakfast stop head home. Students will need money for Breakfast and Lunch that day on our way home.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
