This year will see some changes to the band camp schedule, starting with registration and rehearsal on Sunday 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: Parents – your presense is required to check-in your student!

  • Sunday, July 23rd – 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Financial Contracts and Payments:

  • The third payment of $100 is due at check in. MPLT outstanding balances should not exceed $300, (or full adherance to your financial contract), in order to fulfill financial expectation to participate in band camp.
  • Payment plan arrangements should already have been made before band camp check in, however representatives from LN and LC will be available to set up plans at registration.
  • 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 payments or set up payment plans prior to registration, as long lines at the financial tables are possible during registration.
