Rehearsal location change for Saturday, 12/20!

Due to circumstances beyond our control, rehearsal on Saturday, 12/20 will NOT be at Kamehameha School.  We will be at Maui High School, as usual.  Rehearsal will be from 10am to 5pm as usual.  Students do not need to report at 8:30am for loading.

Students and alumni, please spread the word so that no one shows up to Kamehameha.  Thank you.

Lunch will still be provided.


Our first marching camp was five months ago. Although the end is near, you should never forget the hard work it took to get you this far. It’s been an incredible journey, and the best is yet to come.

Keep each other safe, and encourage your friends to make the right choices. Some of you are faltering, and need to be reminded that people are always watching. Have the integrity to do what is right, even when you think no one is watching.

Sorry for the miscommunication!
