We are committed to making your Madison Scouts experience affordable.
The Value of The Experience
You'll have multiple opportunities to perform for thousands and compete with other drums corps during a 10,000 mile national tour.
The Madison Scouts provide you with many opportunities to develop key life skills such as self-discipline, team-building, and leadership.
Approximately half of the cost of your Madison Scouts experience is underwritten by the organization to help provide you affordable tuition.
Tuition & Payment Plan
Our tuition covers all housing, food, corps transportation, equipment, and uniform costs while you are on tour and during spring training, as well as an education delivered by our world class instructional team.
Our tuition for the 2023 season is expected to be $4900, with no increase from 2022.
All new auditionees will pay the audition fee. Returning members pay no audition fee but will be required to make a $250 tuition deposit by September 30, 2022 to secure their contract.

C.H. Beebe Scholarship Program
With the assistance of generous alumni and other financial supporters, the Madison Scouts actively maintain a pool of $50,000 in scholarships for which members can apply.
Through Drum Corps International, tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships are awarded to Open Class and World Class members.
Customizable Payment Plan
Performers interested in developing a custom payment plan will work alongside our Financial Manager to create a plan that works for the individual and the drum corps. All performers must be paid in full prior to moving in for the season.
