Commando Camp-Rising 9th-12th graders

All it takes is all you’ve got!

Young men, entering grades 9-12 looking for a challenge that will test them at every level, sign up for Valley Forge Commando Challenge.
This unique experience is designed to instill the Commando ethos of mindset, values and spirit. This is NOT a behavior corrections camp.

Taught by a highly experienced team of former UK Royal Marines Commandos, United States Marines and US Army Infantry, this week long course will push each candidate to the limits. To win the coveted Valley Forge Green Beret is not easy – it requires EFFORT. We place no value on anything we get cheaply – the more the effort, the more discomfort, the more hardship – THE HAPPIER WE ARE.

The well-known and accepted methodology of Crawl, Walk, Run, doesn’t work here – be prepared to hit the ground ‘sprinting’. The syllabus in demanding and hard paced – it has to be to develop the physical and mental stamina that is requires to wear the VF Green Beret.

All it takes is all you got; accept pain, discipline and suffering as part of the game. Pain is the only way to know when you are nearing your best and approaching your limit.

A sense of humor allows us to tolerate the intolerable, accept the unacceptable and to bear the unbearable.

If you think you have what it takes to become a VF Commando, demonstrate some Courage and sign up.
