Personalized Band Jackets!

Liberty University Marching Band:

We are excited to offer personalized band jackets to all band members this fall! The cost will be $89.00 for all sizes. This warm jacket is navy with a bit of reflective ‘disappearing’ stripe near the shoulder, and will have our large, full 3-color eagle/monogram logo embroidered on the back, our logo embroidered on the front left, and your name and instrument personalization embroidered on the front right.

These will be available for you to view, try on, and order at Band Camp Check-in Day only. Payment is required at the time of order (in form of cash, check, or credit card). It takes a while for the vendor to complete this order, so we must order early so the jackets arrive for cooler weather.

Please be prepared to make payment by check, cash, or credit card at Band Camp Check-in if you desire to order one. Please know that these jackets are offered exclusively to current members of The Spirit of the Mountain Marching Band only.

See you soon!

Room and Board

The Marching Band assumes all costs of lodging and meals incurred during Band Camp for students who live on campus during the fall semester, in accordance with their LU lodging and meal plan.  Commuters will need to commute during band camp.  Lodging begins with the night of your designated registration day. The first meal provided is breakfast the following morning. In the event an individual participating in Band Camp drops out of band camp or withdraws from the class later in the semester, reimbursement for meals and lodging is expected.

On band camp check-in day, students who have made arrangements with the Student Housing for fall semester dormitory housing will move into their dorm rooms. The dorm assignment given at Band Camp will be your permanent room for the entire school year. However, if you have not completed Financial Check-in and Housing, you will not receive a dorm assignment.


Generally, each day will usually be divided into 4 practice sessions.

  • 9:00 am - 11:30 am
  • 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
  • 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
  • 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm

We start work on the show immediately. Band Camp is extremely concentrated due to the minimal number of rehearsal hours during the semester. Band Camp will begin on your scheduled arrival date listed above, and continue through the day before the first day of regular classes.


During Band Camp, a Hawaiian Luau, ice cream social, pool party and other recreational activities have been planned. Additional activities occur during the semester, such as an October Hayfest, bonfire and cookout.

Appropriate Camp Attire

Clothing during Band Camp should be casual and of a "sports-like" nature. Since August is still extremely hot in Virginia, shorts (no cut-offs), T-shirts, tennis shoes, and sun screen are recommended (for rainy days, a hooded poncho is also suggested). Due to our practice location on a grass field, we suggest to bring insect repellant for those annoying gnats.

Band Camp Reception

Saturday evening, August 19, at 8:00 p.m., the band officers will host a reception for all parents, family members and  band members. Attendees will have an opportunity to meet the band leadership, hear of the band’s plans for the year and meet other band families in attendance at Band Camp Check-in.
