Drum Corps International (DCI) is the non-profit governing body operating the North American drum and bugle corps circuit. Members in these corps are aged between 13 and 21. Their competitive summer tour (full-time summer commitment) culminates with the week-long DCI World Championships. Many other drum corps associations around the world are based upon DCI.

Beginning in late fall or early winter, corps hold weekend rehearsal camps once a month. The first two or three camps are primarily to audition members, though the audition process is not necessarily formal. At the end of the college school year in May, camps cease and members of full-time corps report for move-in, that is, move to the locality where the corps rehearses. Corps then spend 12 to 16 hour days refining the music and movement of their show, as there is little time remaining before the beginning of the competitive season in June.

Corps travel by coach buses in convoy with trailers holding equipment and field kitchens. Once on the road, members generally sleep on the buses as the corps travels at night, and in sleeping bags on school gym floors once the next destination is reached. They practice their show for as long as schedule allows during the day, and then load up for the evening competition nearby.
