CADET BASIC TRAINING

Click Enroll Now to See This Year's Dates!

 

 

Cadet Basic Training (CBT) is a two-week, high-adventure, introduction to military life.   You will train, sweat and find your inner-strength with other young people from around the world. 

 

Recruits are led by seasoned Drill Instructors (DoD generic term) from the Army, Marine Corps and Air Force. The Drill Instructors instill a high level of personal pride, self-discipline and internal confidence in each recruit. This is not an easy course and is intended for teens who want to challenge themselves.

 

This is an excellent opportunity to experience the military lifestyle as a primer for the possibility of future military service or attendance at a Service Academy.

 

Highlights of CBT include marksmanship training, water survival training, rappelling, obstacle courses, self-defense training, and a formal Graduation Ceremony as the final event. This is the closest to real U.S. military boot camp that a teenager can experience without actually enlisting. Participants will be able to make an informed decision about a military career by the end.
