The Cavaliers Medical Team is committed to providing you the best medical care possible during your time with The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps. In order to accomplish this, we must have complete Health Profiles on every member.
Additionally, we are excited to announce that this new system provides us with the ability to carry information over from year to year! This will result in a significant time savings for returning members (next year)!
Also of note, you will receive e-mail reminders from from The Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps via CampDoc.com once per week until your Health Profile is 100% complete. The only way to stop these e-mails is 100% completion of all required components.
Should you have any questions, please review the attached FAQ document from CampDoc.com. As always, should you have any problems or questions, please contact us a firstname.lastname@example.org.
Verify you have a CampDoc account - after you signed your contract your should have received an invite to CampDoc.com. If you did not receive this please contact us at email@example.com
Provide your required health information on CampDoc.com

While completing your Health Profile, you will be asked to upload and enter the following information:
A copy of both sides of your Health Insurance Card (upload one file only)

Every member is required to upload an updated Sports Physical (an updated Sports Physical includes only those completed after August 2018). This document is available for download once you log in and begin completing your Health Profile. The document includes detailed instructions and the physical form. Please read and follow the instructions carefully.

For those who have current medical insurance, the purchase of at least the base-level protection plan (Medical coverage and up to $500 of tuition cost / $500 of your transportation costs) is highly encouraged but completely voluntary. If you do not have valid Health/Medical Insurance throughout the duration of the Drum Corps Season (May – August), you are required to purchase the base-level plan as described herein.
When you accept a position as a member of The Cavaliers, you agree to the financial obligations associated with that membership. Bottom line - there is no easy way to pay for drum corps. There are numerous ways to raise money, but they all require some effort. The more you do, the more you increase the odds of getting the money you need.
On this page you will find several suggestions and techniques which can be used to raise money, and each approach can work if you put in serious effort..
Be genuinely appreciative of any money you do get and express that appreciation to your donor.
The Cavaliers Scholarship fund is made up of various unique scholarship opportunities for the Color Guard, Brass, Percussion, and Drum Majors provided by The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps. These scholarships are designed to help those students who need additional support to pay for the summer tour. Due to the limited nature of these scholarship funds, there is no guarantee that everyone who applies for a scholarship will be granted a financial award.
As a Member of The Cavaliers, you are responsible for satisfying your financial obligation by the established deadlines.
Complete the online Financial Assistance Scholarship Application and submit along with two (2) letters of recommendation for consideration.
Awards will be distributed shortly after the application deadline and are contingent upon 1) Member completely satisfying their financial obligation by the established deadlines; and 2) Member completing The Cavaliers' full season.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for questions about The Cavaliers Scholarship Fund or if you have any challenges submitting your application.
March 27, 2019 (Current contracted members in Color Guard, Brass, Percussion, and Drum Majors), May 10, 2019 (NEWLY contracted Color Guard members ONLY from April Audition Experience).
The BOOST program was designed to help our students meet their financial obligation and assist with their living expenses as they spend the summer performing with The Cavaliers. Each member will have a set of 100 squares available for purchase in denominations from $1.00 up to $100.00.
This program serves two primary purposes: 1) Provide a way for contracted Members to crowd-fund their dues in small amounts; and 2) Serve as an organizational fundraiser to offset growing costs of operation. Current contracted members should ONLY be using the boost board program for online promotion or crowd-funding initiatives. They are not allowed to use third party crowd-funding platforms such as GoFundMe, Kickstarter, Crowdrise, Wefunder, or Patreon. Contributions made to individual member boost boards are NOT tax-deductible.
100% of contributions are applied to Member’s dues until their obligation is fulfilled
Additional squared sold will go towards operation costs for the organization
The Corps Raffle is a mandatory fundraising effort. 7 tickets at $50 each are included in your dues. When you sell these 7 tickets you keep the proceeds, and this offsets the $350 in your dues.
If you sell more than 7 Raffle Tickets then 25% of the additional sales is applied to your dues.
Example: Sell 11 raffle tickets
First 7 tickets = $350
Four extra ticket sales = $50 to your dues
To get extra raffle tickets please write to email@example.com
A sponsorship is a direct contribution which is 100% applied toward an individual Member’s Dues, per the contributor's instructions. Sponsorship contributions are NOT tax-deductable, per IRS regulations.
Contributions should funnel directly through the Corps via a check to the Cavalier Office or online transaction at http://give.cavaliers.org/sponsor
