How much are all of the fees?

The Member Tuition cost to march Blue Knights in 2019 is TBD. Tuition covers the full cost of participation in the drum corps, including spring training housing and meals, tour meals and transportation, instruction, equipment, uniforms, shoes, logistics, and administrative support.

Admin Fee: The one-time Administrative Fee is $55 and required for all those who attend any of our BKXperience clinics or $95 Video Fee for those who send in an audition video. All 1-day clinics officially count as Round One in the audition process.

A $55 ONE-TIME admin fee will be charged for ALL participants attending a Denver Camp the first time.  This is a ONE TIME separate fee in addition to the Camp fee.
