What to Wear to Camp

Yup, we have an answer for that question too! (Well, your drum majors do anyways)


Hey guys! I hope all of your summer is going amazing! Band camp is 2 weeks and I don’t know about you but I’m excited to see you guys again! Last year drum majors tried out themed days for camp and it went well. We’ve got your themed days for this band camp week!!!! They are…..

  • Inside out Monday (wear everything inside out)
  • Tacky Tuesday (look at tacky as you can!)
  • Cancer awareness Wednesday 
  • Purrrrsssday Thursday (wear as much cat stuff as you can!)
  • Finally…. Flashback/ Show Shirt Friday. *You can wear any old band or Farwell shirts* 

If you have any questions go ahead and ASK Zeke or me. I can’t wait to see you guys. Love you all!
