Notes for Camp

Notes for NL & SL Camp
NL Students — You MUST bring your lunch each day this week. Students will not be allowed to leave the campus. There is just not enough time and you will want to bond with the group anyways! Keep in mind that there will be limited air conditioning and storage for keeping things cool. Please plan accordingly. 

SL – This would apply to you, but you all may just need some kind of snack as you will be later in the evening. 

EVERYONE – Please bring your 1-inch black binders (with clear plastic front) to rehearsal. If you don’t have it, you will be okay, but you won’t have anything to put your music in during rehearsal. 

Any payment that is due at camp needs to be paid at camp as you sign in. 

Please remember to dress appropriately for dancing. I know you will work hard and it will be hot as a result. Please bring PLENTY of water. I suggest a water bottle that is easily re-fillable. 

Please bring a pencil with you to rehearsal. I will have extras, but it helps if you bring one for yourself! 

Remember your checklists! You should have started by now, but if you haven’t, there is time to catch up! Those are due to me electronically (you can get the Word document on the website) by 11:59 p.m. on Monday, August 14th. 

I am SO excited to begin working with all of you! We have a great week and year ahead of us and I can’t wait to see what we will accomplish. Please be thinking of your response to this open-ended statement over the next couple of days: “Remarkable is…” I challenge you to think on this over the weekend (and we will be using this at camp!)! If you have questions or concerns, you can now reach me at Please don’t hesitate to contact me. 

Yours in song, 
Mr. Shafer 

Attention NL & SL Members!

In order to make sure we have enough time to equally work on vocals and choreography for the fall show, Starlights will be meeting from 4:00-9:00 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of camp week. The information given said 8:00 p.m. as the ending time. This is the original time frame that was given at the end of last school year. Please note this change. If this time extension causes a conflict for you, please get in contact with me ASAP! If you have pre-approved a conflict (such as leaving early), it still is approved. Just realize we may be working on more material because of the time extension. Have a GREAT week and I look forward to seeing you Monday afternoon! 
It would be helpful if EVERYONE could bring their 1-inch black binder (with the clear, plastic cover) to rehearsal on Monday, July 17th. You will need it for your music! 

Yours in song, 
Mr. Shafer
