May Camp

Friday, May 5th, 5:00-9:00 PM (dinner provided)
Saturday, May 6th, all day (lunch provided)

            May Camp is required for all members of the band, new or returning. Students will learn marching fundamentals and music for the fall marching show, try on uniforms, and order supplies for the fall. We have designed this experience to prepare you for success throughout the fall season. Camp attendance determines how many spots we will write for the fall field show, it is important that you attend camp to be counted! Saturday will include a parent info meeting, preview performance, Band Family Cookout, and pool party!


Monday, May 22nd from 3:30-4:30 PM, $10.

A physical exam is required for all marching band members. This is the same physical required for athletics. Crowley HS will offer physicals for students on Monday, May 22nd for only $10.

Information on the physical event at CHS:


If you cannot attend, any doctor can perform your physical, but must use the official UIL form:


Summer Rehearsals

Every Tuesday in June and July, 6-8PM, CHS band hall

Come see your friends and make some music all summer long! Attend as many as you can. Learning the music early will give you a head start on the fall season and help us all be a better band.

Drumline Camp
(by audition only)
Colorguard Camp
(no experience required –
must attend May camp)

July 17-21, CHS, details TBD

Colorguard and drumline require intensive training before summer band. For more information contact Mr. Wessels (colorguard) or Mr. Danforth (drumline).

Summer Band Camp

July 24-August 9, CHS

Summer band camp is required for all members of the MEB (including colorguard). Band camp is every weekday, Monday-Friday, from July 24th through August 9. Please attend the parent info meeting for more information including a detailed schedule.

Band Fees

Managing such a large group incurs costs, but we do our best to keep band fees manageable. Compared to other area schools and other activities at CHS, marching band is one of the least expensive activities for your student. Fees should never prevent a student from participating in band – we can work with you on a payment plan or a scholarship if needed. Fundraising opportunities will be available in the fall to offset fees.

Details regarding band fees will be available at parent info meetings on April 10th and 11th.
