Every summer, many Drum Corps International groups take a break from their rigorous rehearsal and performance schedules to give back.

From single day to overnight series of educational clinics and summer camps, corps reach out to junior high, high school and college students to give them the opportunity to learn from top marching music instructors while getting a taste of what it's like to be a part of Marching Music's Major League.

With events scheduled across the country, here's a look at where and when you can learn from some of the very best during the summer of 2015. Stay posted to corps' websites and social media accounts for additional opportunities that may be added in the coming weeks.
