Band Camp Registration – Form to register for Band Camp for the upcoming year.
Medical Release / Permission Form – This form is must be submitted before a student may participate in any MHS Band activity, including summer band camp.
Fund Raising – The GHS Band Boosters provide opportunities for students to earn part or all of their band fees. Examples include the annual Fruit Sale and other announced activities. Funds raised in this manner are kept in a dedicated bank account, and may be used toward any band expense. In addition, families may earn concessions credits ($5 per hour per game) by working in the concession stands during GHS, GMS, and Bluefield College football games. Concession credits may only be applied to GHS Band costs.
Band Camp – $200.00 – For all students who attend camp to pay for meals at camp, a band t-shirt, salaries for the instructional staff (not directors), music and drill for the marching season, and uniform cleanings. It is our desire that no student miss camp due to financial concerns, so please contact the band director if financial arrangements need to be made.Fund raising opportunities are provided by the GHS Band Boosters to help offset the cost of camp.
