We hope everyone is looking forward to STAR Camp next weekend! For those new, STAR (Summer Training And Rehearsal) Camp is a weekend focused on learning and reviewing material and teambuilding within our AOK Family. This is always a lot of fun, but also a good amount of work, so be sure to have plenty of water with you!
The cost for camp required of each member goes to the meals, facility rental and lodging (if applicable). These meals will be organized by the Board and are sounding AMAZING, so look forward to them!
Of course, since there are only so many beds/rooms and not everyone is staying overnight, there will be differing start and end times each day for particular groups:
Friday - 5/19 (Dinner provided)
5:30pm - ARRIVAL for Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald
Saturday - 5/20 (Lunch/Dinner provided; Breakfast provided for overnight members)
9:00am - ARRIVAL for Diamond, Amethyst, Garnet, Opal, Topaz, Pearl
7:00pm - PICKUP after Dinner for Opal, Topaz, Pearl
Sunday - 5/21 (Lunch provided; Breakfast provided for overnight members)
9:00am - ARRIVAL for Opal, Topaz, Pearl
4:00pm - DEPARTURE for All Groups
More detailed schedules regarding each group, where they need to be and when, and meal times for each day will be provided at camp.
Additionally on Sunday, 5/21 we will be having a Practice Show to runthrough all of our summer material. Though all material may not be polished at this point, this show allows us to assess where numbers are at, and which songs need a bit more focus going into the last weeks of May. This practice show is scheduled to start at 1:00pm, and should last around 1.5 hours. Parents are welcome to attend, so feel free to arrive after 12:30pm if you'd like to watch the show. Note that lawn chairs/seating may be required. Afterwards, the members are expected to help us pack up the sound equipment, and cleanup the campgrounds that we used prior to leaving.
You must be excused by either Tony or Carley in order to leave.
Overall we have a very fun STAR Camp planned, and hope everyone is looking forward to it!
