Band camp is an important and exciting time for the members of the Bullets Marching Band. During this period, members learn two complete shows (Pregame and Halftime) as well as standardize our musical and marching styles.

The band also spends time getting to know each other and having fun. The Bullets Band Camp schedule is designed with periods of rehearsal and time for relaxation and social activities. Student leadership is an important component of rehearsals, and elected class representatives (including a 1st Year Representative elected during camp) plan and facilitate all social activities.

Students attending band camp will check into their campus housing when they arrive for camp. This provides a great way to learn the campus and become familiar with your new home prior to the arrival of the majority of the student body.

Meals are provided as part of the band camp fee, along with a variety of other items necessary for participation in the Bullets Marching Band. Other items are available for purchase on the band Intent to Participate form.

For band camp dates, check the Bullets Marching Band calendar. Specific information about band camp, including lists of what to bring, the band camp schedule, and other important things to know will be distributed to all band members over the summer via Moodle, Gettysburg College's learning management system.
