My son has been all about military since he was a toddler. I stumbled across this camp looking for a way to get my son into something to prepare and help him decide for sure that military is what he wants. His school does not offer ROTC, so I finding this was amazing. My son has went through cadet basic training, cadet field leader couse his first year. The second year fitness week ojt, cadet scuba, and cadet ranger phase 1. This year he has completed cadet combat engineer and currently in the middle of cadet ranger phase 2. I am amazed at the experience and knowledge he is gaining from his experience at XMC. XMC is the greatest opportunity, experience, and learning camp. I cannot ever express what this camp has meant to my son and me. Most grateful for the dedicated staff and Cadre at XMC!
