It's 2 p.m. Do you know where your kids are? They just might be marching on a field somewhere. In July.

Peter Buccellato, second from left, a volunteer with the Osceola High School Band, gives pointers during drills.

Jason Ellis, left, and Aaron Bruckler, both 17, assemble scaffolding so band instructors can monitor and shape the marching formations and movements.

Baritone player Seth Wise, left, practices backward marching drills. Twenty-five of the 60 band members are attending the camp.
