Camp Schedule & Activities
Generally, each day will usually be divided into 3 practice sessions.

- 1:30 – 4:30 p.m.
- 6:30 – 9:30 p.m.
- Some late-evening social events are also scheduled!
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, Putt Putt Game Night, Ice Cream Social, Pool Party, and other recreational activities have been planned. Additional activities occur during the semester, such as an October Hayfest, bonfire cookout, and the Annual Christmas Banquet (Banquet not covered by ‘Activity Fee’).
Band Camp Reception – Freshmen Families
Following Band Camp Check-In on Saturday, the band officers will host a reception at 8 p.m. for all parents, family members, and band members who are new to us!
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. This is intended primarily for freshmen/transfer band members and their families.
Registration for School Year
All Marching Band members must complete university registration and check-in requirements prior to band camp. This will include class registration, Flames Pass (school ID), BankMobile Disbursements refund preference selection, financial account, automobile registration, and any other documentation that accompanies enrolling at Liberty University for the semester.
