Camp 2014: Newbies

Newbies are a tad obvious-

How can you tell that someone has never been to band camp before?

"Oh man, I can’t wait to get there! We’ll be all relaxin’ tonight. Let’s swim before dinner!”

Uh, no.

Buses arrived around 3pm and after move-in, students had about 10 minutes to relax before trekking the quarter mile to the mess hall for dinner.

Immediately after dinner, it was solid rehearsals until it was too dark to see their own feet.

Monday will be another full day, so it’s approximately 22 hours after arriving that a student has their first opportunity to be all relaxin’ and touch a toe to the lake.

Newbies… they’re fun.
