Advance Camp is an intensive 5 week training experience, held during the summer at Fort Knox, Kentucky. It is intentionally tough and introduces stress. The days are long with considerable night training and no days off – in short, a tough camp. Throughout the five weeks cadets encounter physical and mental obstacles which challenge them as a person, soldier, and leader. Cadets gain self-confidence through accomplishment of tough training. Platoon competition develops collective cohesion from individual performance.
