This educational camp centers around helping motivated color guard, percussion, and wind students hone their technique, performance, and leadership skills. From beginning to advanced, students of all experience levels are invited to learn alongside members and staff of The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps, the 7-time DCI World Champions.

Over the course of this two-day learning event, students will dive into the GearWORKS Methods detailing the technique approach used by The Cavaliers, Cavaliers Indoor Percussion, and Chromium Winds. The Summer Academy will conclude with an exclusive side-by-side performance with the 2018 Cavaliers!
