Frequently Asked Questions

Click or tap each heading to show detail.

Will my son be with other campers his age?

Yes. Summer camp companies are organized by age group to ensure that the challenge level remains constant at each training event.

It is hot there in July. What precautions do you take to protect cadets from the heat?

Each camper is issued a water carrier (Camelback) to ensure he is properly hydrating at all events. Sunscreen is provided, and he will be monitored continuously to ensure he is using it properly. Finally, he will get a one-hour rest period immediately following lunch each day to ensure he is ready for the afternoon’s training events.

How can I communicate with my son while he's at camp?

Due to the full schedule, time is not available for campers to make routine phone calls or send/receive emails. We encourage campers to write letters to their family and friends. Receiving an actual letter of encouragement at mail call is a great way for him to end the day.

What happens at graduation?

On the final day of the camp, all campers participate in the graduation parade that takes place in front of the Iwo Jima Monument. After the parade, family members attend the graduation ceremony that takes place in front of the barracks. Each camper will receive his certificate of completion.

Will he be able to go to church while at summer camp?

The Chaplain of Cadets provides a non-denominational service on Sunday evenings throughout the duration of the camp.
