Pittsfield, VT

Kids Military Influenced Style Boot Camp

June 23rd to June 29th, 2024

ARRIVAL: 3 pm to 5 pm (Drop off on the farm)


Envision a military-style boot camp for kids 10-17. Kids work hard and push themselves to new heights for 7 days of challenging workouts, endurance training, and countless burpees!

US Military Veterans from Mt. Warfare School, Olympic wrestlers, and top-level personal trainers lead campers through the day and often the night. Challenges include morning workouts, mountain climbing, and cold water therapy. Part of each day will also include restoring yoga sessions, drumming, team-building activities, and so much more!

Don’t be fooled; this camp is more like Shackleton’s Iceflow Endurance than a summer camp. Kids will be tired, hungry, and cold for 12-15 hours daily. By overcoming these challenges, they will build true resilience and find themselves stronger than ever, showing TRUE GRIT!

We turn children into adults!
