Squad STX is a unique team camping experience designed and led by former US Army infantry officers to help middle school age boys build stronger leadership skills. Our courses combine camping, hiking, land navigation, laser tag and problems solving with time-tested military leadership methodologies and situational training exercises (STX). Not a boot camp!

Campers practice basic camping, survival skills, and small group leadership in a 100% outdoor, 5-day overnight camp. Boys learn techniques for setting up tarp shelters and campsites, reading trail maps and contour maps, navigating to places around the park using terrain association, cooking meals using propane stoves and campfires, keeping track of important items, taking care of their feet, and capture-the-flag scenarios using top-of-the-line laser tag guns. Early bird prices are available six weeks prior to each session.

The camping treks are definitely not “a walk in the park,” and all attendees must have the stamina to endure the course. Other activities include campsite planning, knot tying, cooking, knife handling, first aid, and more. Perfect for folks that may not have time for traditional scouting.

Middle schools years are transformative for boys close to entering adulthood — today often growing up in a cocoon of technology — and Squad STX is here to provide challenging and fun all boys outdoor leadership experiences for young men to build on.
