  • Some days MAY HAVE adjusted schedules due to week of welcome, Department of Music auditions, etc… Other alterations in the schedule are due to changes in field availability, or possibly if we have accomplished all set goals for the rehearsal. This is a template and is subject to change as necessary.


  • It is not normal or acceptable for students to miss the camp rehearsals. However, if a mandatory conflict arises please speak with Dr. Woodworth to make arrangements and fill out the “Absence Form”. Freshman often have brief, mandatory financial aid or course scheduling meetings required during week of welcome. Music majors often have brief auditions. Again, FILL out the Absent Form AFTER speaking with Dr. Woodworth.


  • Students are advised to bring the following items to all camp rehearsals:
    • WATER!!! And lots of it…
    • earplugs
    • hats
    • sunglasses
    • sunscreen
    • unrestrictive, loose athletic style clothing
    • Athletic or Tennis shoes. THIS IS REQUIRED AT ALL REHEARSALS
    • do not show up to rehearsals wearing jeans, toms, or flip - flops


This is a new year, and a new era for the Emporia State Marching Hornets.  Please come to camp ready to work, ready to learn, and ready to represent ESU to the best of our abilities at all times.
