2. Where band geeks go to socialize, practice their instruments, practice their drill, have severe dehydration, and generally improve their marching band.

-Despite common perception, not all band camps are merely staging grounds for sexual activity. Some schools enlist the help of band parents in chaperoning the trip to make sure that the students (particularly the freshmen) don't get away with anything illegal or sexual in nature. Furthermore, sources show that most flute players have never shoved their flute into any part of their bodies, despite the line about it in American Pie.
Typical band camp activities may include: Marching, standing in the hot sun for hours, getting eaten alive by bugs, marching, playing instruments, getting weird tan lines, marching, choking down partially edible food, coming up with strange inside jokes nobody outside of band will ever understand, getting soaked, getting lost in nearby woods at night, sleeping, pulling off pranks, and oh yeah, more marching.
2)An excuse to tell a long (or not so long), funny, and often stupid story.
3)Where all your friends in band are during the summer. (also a viable excuse for not seeing your friends if you're in band.)
2)"This one time at band camp... we got lost in the woods on our way to practice and then these moquitoes that were like THIS BIG attacked us so I fended them off with my clarinet and then Jimmy jumped out at us and I got so scared I hit him with my clarinet too..."
3)-"Dude, I haven't seen you since July... where were you?"
-"Yeah, I was at band camp."
It is a place where every summer, a group of like minded, geeky and goofy kids with instuments all migrate to a common place to spend a week or two (three if you're serious) playing their instuments with each other. It is also a place where it's OK to wear your glasses instead of contacts.
NO sexual actions are performed during this time. its not the time for sex, its time for work. So if you think bad things happen, get it over it. That "one time at band camp..." thing is so false. Get over it.
