You may get lots of advice from the list, but please...if you have not done
so yet...talk to the band director. Its always possible he/she can
alleviate your concerns. You really owe the person that opportunity. If
that does not satisfy, then speak to the band booster president (if
applicable) and principal.
There is no way I can fully understand just what went on...wasn't there.
But, a a fellow band parent (whose daughter went through a somewhat
similar...but, for her, very enjoyable experience) and as a military academy
grad who went through another much stronger version of what you describe
(something I failed to find much fun in) I see a need for you to resolve
your worries. Whether anything needs to change at band camp is still an
open question. Maybe yes...maybe no.
