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.
Coming Fall 2021
All 2022 auditionees are required to pay the "Audition Packet & Screeing Fee". Only those invited to the November Audition Camp will have to pay the "November Camp Fee".

Madison Scouts Scholarships
With the assistance of generous alumni and other financial supporters, we actively maintain a pool of approximately $30,000 in scholarships for which Madison Scouts members can apply.
Through Drum Corps International, tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships are awarded to Open Class and World Class Drum Corps International corps members.
Each performer will have the opportunity to decrease a portion of their tuition by participating in our Fuel-A-Thon fundraiser focused on raising money for fuel expenses.
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.
