Chino Valley Review

Chino Valley High School Band Director Thomas Wiegert will offer the 2nd Annual Summer Band Camp, July 21-25, for new and continuing band members. The first day they will be at the high school and the rest of the week at the Del Rio Elementary School sports field. Percussionists only will meet from 8:30-9:30 a.m., and the entire band and Color Guard will meet from 9:30 a.m.-3 p.m.

The band camp is free to attend and free boxed lunches are provided.

In addition, Chino Valley High School Band will have a car wash fundraiser in the parking lot of the Chino Valley Taco Bell (next to Safeway) on Saturday, July 26, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Proceeds go toward the band's uniform fund, and for the repair, replacement and cleaning of uniforms.

The Color Guard carries the flags in front of the band and is open to boys and girls in grades 8-12.

At band camp, Wiegert says he will focus on three things: to help students new to the band get to know each other; to provide basic marching instruction for new members; and to begin work on the Fall Pep Band and parade music. The marching band will participate in Chino Valley's Territorial Days parade on Aug. 30.

Also for band camp, Wiegert will provide transportation for Paulden students, to and from the Depot 89 gas station in Paulden, with pick-ups each day at 7:30 a.m.

Wiegert is also seeking parent volunteers to help out with band camp and with the band's Color Guard.

Students interested in attending camp should contact the high school at 636-2298 or email Wiegert at and also for a list of how to prepare for band camp, what to wear, and what to bring.

Wiegert encourages all band students to attend camp.

"Band camp can be hot and long, but if you properly prepare for this event, you will have a lot of fun. Band camp is the most important part of our season each year and your attendance is very important. All students who will be participating in the CVHS Fall marching program, are expected to attend every day of band camp," Wiegert said.
