Raiders Drum And Bugle Corps

Raiders... you may take the field for competition! The most exciting words you will ever hear.

Our Mission

The mission of the Raiders Drum and Bugle Corps is to provide young adults, ages 14-21, from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds, with music, educational and character-building experiences through the vehicle of the performing arts.

The Raiders Drum and Bugle Corps, founded in 1990, is a nationally competitive drum corps based in Burlington, NJ. As a non-profit 501c(3) organization, the Raiders Drum and Bugle Corps was founded with one primary goal - to afford any young adult the opportunity to march in a drum corps while providing a world class experience. The Raiders Drum and Bugle Corps guarantees an experience to young adults unlike any other in the performing arts.

Here they can combine the intellect of artistic and musical virtues with the achievement and excellence of athletic prowess. The benefits of being a Raider transcend competitive success. They build life enhancing skills and self-confidence that will assist them throughout their adult life. They will be better citizens, employees, students, parents, and friends because of all they learn.
