Dear Middle School Parents & Students,
It is with regret to inform you that SYBC will be going on a one year hiatus. We will not be having a camp during the summer of 2020.
The reason for this is due to the fact that there is not adequate facility availability this summer in Sherwood. Half of the district buildings are under construction being fitted for their new facility roles with the SSD transition. The new SHS facility has road construction happening which won’t allow public access.
There is simply no space with adequate rehearsal & performance space with public access.
I am working on gathering a suggested list for alternate summer music camps for student’s interested in playing this summer. Camps can be found at https://sherwoodbands.org/lessons-camps/
- Flute Boot Camp – https://www.flutealliance.com/index.html
- Wallowa Lakes Brass Camp & Wallowa Lakes Woodwind Camp – https://wlmusiccamps.org/
- East Winds Band Camp – https://www.ewbcpdx.org/
Sorry for the bad news. SYBC will be back full force in 2021!
P.S. – I still plan on finding a solution for the Robin Hood Parade Marching Band and will communicate that at a later date.
