Summer Band FAQ

Do we need our instruments? Are we going to play music? Yes!!! We will be learning several pep band pieces to get us ready for the beginning of school.

What do we need to wear? Wear comfortable clothes that are school appropriate.

Are we going to eat? Yep! At the end of both days we will have a little period to eat and socialize with each other.

Who is going to be at the Summer Band Camp? All returning band members going into the 7th and 8th grade are invited. If you are new to Rogers and have previous experience in band… you are welcome, also. This is not for students entering the 6th grade beginning band, however.

Oh no! I forgot to sign up on Sign-up Genius! Can I still come? Yes, but please email a director ASAP so that we make sure to have all of your music ready.

So… I still don’t have my school-owned instrument. How do I pick it up? Even though you are a bit behind, just come to Summer Band and we will help you out.

Are we going to be learning fun music? You bet!!!! We even have a special surprise… you’ll have to come to camp to find out what it is!

Does it cost anything to go to camp? The only thing it cost is your time. No money needed. It will be well worth the wait!

Do you have any other questions? Come on to the Rogers Summer Band Camp and we will be glad to answer all you questions. See you then!
