My son earned cadet at their basic training. He wanted to go. Here is what is not said in the parent guide. Its very realistic military basic training. They will yell at you, physically punish you (pushups and other), etc. Military style "shake down." They work on you mentally to instill "discipline." Food portions are insufficient. They deprive you of sleep. You are housed younger kids with older kids. Lots of fighting and issues. Many kids don't want to be there. One kid tried to drink bleach to be sent home. One kid sent home for bullying (unproven). The camp owner, Mr. Land, is sometimes rude to parents. He deflects difficult questions. Communication is minimal outside the "rosey" facebook page. They do offer all the activities advertised (repelling, obstacle course, PT test, marksmanship, etc.). My son thought highly of his drill instructor as a person. He did feel accomplishment in getting through it. Just go in with your eyes open and know the risks. In my opinion, too intense for under 16 year of age.

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!

I can't say enough about this camp! It really is military standard in dress; respect; physical fitness, and leadership. My sons were at the camp in Summer 2015 and we have already signed on for Summer 2016. I encourage you to enroll for a full month since this first two weeks are basic training and then they move into a rank as a cadet and experience even more adventures the second two-week enrollment. My sons got very physically fit and respect driven while there and have continued it at home. Great camp!!!
