Boston Crusaders Announce Revolutionary Way To Pay For Drum Corps
New this Fall, all Boston Crusaders members will be given the opportunity to pay their tuition and camp fees in 12 monthly installments. The 12 Month Plan will consist of payments of $200 per month with no hidden costs or additional fees. In fact, those who sign up will lock their 2012 tuition and camp fees (to be announced), and will be unaffected by later adjustments.
“We are excited to be able to offer this payment plan for a number of reasons,” said Executive Director Tom Spataro. “We always talk about how drum corps is more than just on the field education. This payment plan offers a great opportunity to teach our members about financial planning and responsibility. By stretching out payments year round, we feel it makes the drum corps experience more attainable and affordable for our members. Also, many of the parents I have spoken with are in agreement and excited to take advantage of this offer. A year round payment plan is also a great way to have members themselves shoulder some, if not all of the cost. Two hundred dollars per month is approximately $50 a week — which is less than 10 hours at minimum wage.”
