Parents, as the summer approaches please, please, PLEASE check the Band website calendar to make sure your Marching Raider is in town and present for ALL camps.  One is not LESS important than the other.  Camps are a critical component to the success of our Band Program. Dates for summer camps have been posted since early last Fall - they are not optional.  

  •  Marching Percussion Pre-camp --- Tues. May 31, Wed. June 1 at Alpharetta HS
  •  Color Guard Camp --- Mon, July 18– Fri, July 22 at Alpharetta HS
  •  Percussion Camp --- Mon, July 18 – Fri, July 22 at Alpharetta HS

  •  "BIG" Band camp (all marching band and color guard members) --- July 25 - 29, 2016 at Rock Eagle - Eatonton, GA. 

Since we design our field shows for an exact number of students to be on the field, every student will be assigned a specific position in the show; every student matters. We cannot rehearse with missing members. If there is an issue with any part of camp please see or contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
