Items to bring: instrument, folio, lyre, wear appropriate marching clothes (you will be active and in the sun!), sunscreen, inhalers if prescribed, tennis shoes, hat, water/water bottle, and pencil.
Conditioning: Prepare your body for the physical component of camp. Strengthen your core with planks, sit ups, crunches; Arm strength with free weights and triceps dips; Endurance with running; Leg Strength with squats, calf raises. These are just a few exercises, but if your first inkling of physical movement is July 17th you will be one sore marcher!
