Band Camp Schedule

Important Dates

Please be aware of the following dates:

  • Drum Line Camp begins on Tuesday, August 19, 2014.
  • Marching Band Camp begins on Thursday, August 21, 2014.

Dormitory Early Move-In

ONLY drum line and color guard students with a required camp schedule prior to the first regularly scheduled University move-in date will receive full early move-in financial assistance. All other NAU Bandsmen are eligible for early move-in but must arrange for an early arrival date with Resident Life, and will do so with the understanding that there will be no financial assistance from NAU Bands.

Students will receive an e-mail in early August requesting housing needs confirmation. It is the responsibility of the student to respond to the Director’s email in order to secure an early move-in opportunity.
