The 9-12 Orchestra Winter Retreat is this coming weekend!

We will be at Angeles Crest Christian Camp, located at 20075 Angeles Crest Highway.  It is about an hour’s drive north of La Canada at about 6,000 feet in elevation. The weather is looking to be sunny, and probably no snow. Please note: There is no cell service and no wifi for campers. The office number, in case you need to reach your student in an emergency is: 626-449-3339.

We will travel to the camp on buses and will leave from LCHS directly after school on Friday, January 19th. Your student can bring their gear to school in the morning to be stored in the band room for the day.

We will leave LCHS at approximately 4pm, arriving at the camp at about 5pm. 

After a weekend of music and camp activities, we will arrive back at LCHS at approximately 1:30pm on Sunday, January 21st.

If you haven’t already, the waiver form and fee of $185 is due. Please make checks payable to, “LCHS MPA,” and have your student return the form and the check to the black box in the band room.  

Snack Donation Sign-Up:

The snack sign-up was sent by separate email last week, but we’re still looking for some snack donations. Please click on the link and sign-up!

The kids will be having rehearsals as well as time in the outdoors which means that they will be HUNGRY in between meals!  We will have s’mores, a nacho bar, popcorn, hot cocoa, whole fruit, and other assorted goodies.

A couple of reminders:

  • There are several students with nut allergies, so please send snacks that are NUT-FREE.  
  • Have your student bring a reusable water bottle for the duration of the trip. We don’t want them to get dehydrated up in the mountains and we will not be stocking very many disposable water bottles. They will be able to fill up with good, clean water at the campsite.
  • All snacks need to be individually wrapped.

Please have your student bring their snack item to the orchestra room by Wednesday, January 17th. Give it to Ms. Munday during zero period marked, “Orchestra Camp Donation.”
