The week of band camp is a great opportunity for new students to move in early, get adjusted to the campus, and meet people before they get thrown into the academic year.
The week is packed with a lot of things to get done for our upcoming season; learning the show music, drill, choreography, and the ESU style of marching. In addition, we host several social activities (such as swimming or movies) and have a series of games throughout the week (the Band Olympics!) to make sure we're also having a great time as we work.
On the final afternoon of band camp, the Warrior Marching Band invites all family and friends to see the hard work and progress made during the week at the Warrior Preview Show! Following the show, the band takes its place as one of the most important parts of the Warrior Welcome by performing at the Walk of the Warrior Induction Ceremony.
By the end of the week, the Warrior Marching Band is ready to take on the academic year by storm and to display the new field show to all the fans that attend home football games. All housing and meals are provided for the band by the University during the week of Band Camp.
