New wave is a genre of rock music popular in the late 1970s and the 1980s with ties to mid-1970s punk rock. New wave moved away from blues and rock and roll sounds to create rock music (early new wave) or pop music (later) that incorporated disco, mod, and electronic music.

A band camp typically refers to a high school, college, or university marching band sumer camp. Band camp is often mandatory for members of the band, and constitutes the majority of the preparation a marching band makes before its marching season (learning how to march, learning “sets” on the field, memorizing show songs). A high school marching band may travel to a college or university for band camp for use of its facilities (dormitories, fieldhouses, fields) and services, or it may stay at the school. The time at band camp is used for focused rehearsals and time for bonding between band members. The colorguard also learns and rehearses with the marching band.
Band camp might also be used to refer to an individual camp where participants focus on developing their own musical skill, in which case it would more likely be called a music camp.
