Your Life-Changing Journey Begins Here

Founded in 1956, Phantom Regiment is proud of our competitive success, including two DCI World Championships (1996,2008) and countless, iconic productions. However, our crowning achievement is not what we have accomplished on the field, but the many notable and successful individuals who call themselves Phantom Regiment alumni.

Over the last 65 years, our world-renowned educators have prepared thousands of young-people to become leaders in their classrooms, communities, businesses, and beyond through the power of performing arts.

Now, it’s your turn.

IN-PERSON CAMPS are returning for the 2022 season!  The location of our in-person camps are in the works, however, you will be given plenty of notice to make travel plans in order to attend. 

Prospective members for 2022 will go through a two-step process before being offered a membership agreement – Initial Evaluation and Callback Evaluation. IF you join the process after the video auditions deadline, you will need to pay the first round audition fee AND the camp fee prior to coming to the in-person camp.  More information can be found in the “Financial Obligation” tab.

DCI limits the age of participants to 21 years of age and younger. A participant who is 22 years before June 1 would be unable to compete.  IF you turn 22 AFTER June 1st, you are eligible to participate in the 2022 season.

The cost to audition via video is $50 and every in-person camp will have a camp fee of $200.  If you join the process AFTER the video audition deadline has concluded, you may audition at the in-person camp, however you will need to pay both audition fees which equal $250.

Tuition costs for 2022 will be announced soon, but expect dues to be between $4000-$4500.

Studies have shown that women and people of color are less likely to apply for positions unless they believe they meet every one of the qualifications as outlined in a role description. We are most interested in finding the best candidates for membership in our drum corps, and that candidate may be one who comes from a less traditional background. We would encourage you to apply to audition, even if you don’t believe you meet all of the qualifications described in the application.
We also acknowledge that there are often barriers to participation in drum corps that we are unaware of. If you are experiencing an obstacle, please let us know by filling out this short form.
