Boot Camp Information

Upon joining the Young Marines unit, youth undergo a 26-hour orientation program, generally spread over several weekly meetings or during a single three day event (Friday evening through Sunday morning). This orientation program is called “Recruit Training." The youth learn general subjects such as history, customs and courtesy, close order drill, physical fitness, Young Marine rank structure, first aid, uniform care, and so much more. After graduating from Young Marines Recruit Training, the youth have the opportunity to learn new skills, earn rank, wear the Young Marines uniform, work towards earning ribbons, and even attending local and national events. The Young Marines earn ribbons in areas of leadership, community service, swimming, academic excellence, first aid, and drug resistance education.
 
We will begin accepting new recruits during the fall. 
Please feel free to contact the Pueblo Young Marines for more information.
 
Our next Recruit Training will be December 2017 or January 2018
