The Stevenson High School Marching Band is accepting adult chaperone applications for away band camp in the summer of 2017. Marching Band Camp will be held from Aug. 13th - Aug. 18th at Lake Ann Camp near Traverse City. These positions are unpaid. Positions are limited based on the number of student campers and final decisions will be made by the Band and Camp Directors. Chaperones are responsible for their own transportation, unless selected to travel on the bus.
We greatly appreciate the time and effort that you are volunteering to give the program and recognize that your time is valuable. Mr. Sekich would not be able to do what he does for all our kids if it were not for the time you are donating. Lake Ann does charge the Band Boosters $260 per adult for room and board. Although not required, we encourage a minimum donation of $130 to the boosters to help offset your charge. Contribute what you think is fair but most importantly what you can afford. You will receive a tax receipt for any donation.
