Boy's Camp, Ages 14-17, 17-21 Jun 2019 -- REGISTRATION IS CLOSED

Boys Image

For the boys, we use paintball as a training tool. We teach map and compass skills, tactical combat casualty care, and how to “shoot move and communicate” using basic patrolling skills. Once the basics are mastered, the teams are tasked with “missions” for them to plan and execute. During the paint ball patrols, the boys practice “casualty care” under (paint ball) fire, maintain team accountability under duress, and how to act rapidly and confidently deal with the consequences of their decisions. At times it is intense, but it is always rewarding and intended to build confidence and increase leadership and decision-making skills during difficult times.

Girl's Camp, Ages 14-17, POSTPONED

Girls Image

For the girls, we use combatives as the primary training tool.  They will receive nine hours of self-defense training using proven hand-to-hand techniques from Rolando Haddad, the Owner of Core Combat Sports and a blackbelt in Krav Maga and Brazilian Jujitsu. The girls will also be taught first aid and will experience realistic medical scenarios to challenge and test their skills.  The girls will learn basic patrolling techniques and then be assigned paintball missions to provide them opportunities to make decisions and act under stress.  Collectively, this training will improve your daughter’s confidence and self-esteem.

The boys and girls will both receive instruction on Leadership Reaction Course events...obstacles and challenges the team must solve and overcome in a short period of time. Nightly campfire discussions will be held on ethics with an emphasis on age-appropriate issues they are facing at home and in school. Colonel (retired) Roland, a Gold Star parent, will discuss selfless service and explain the Nation’s Gold Star program. Sporting events are incorporated to advance team interaction and promote fitness. A short, fictional reading is used to discuss their role in society and help them better understand how they make decisions.

Before the camp, your teenager will take the online Gallup Strengths-Finder Personality Assessment Test. During the camp, they will receive personal feedback on their top five personality strengths from Dr Eric Buller and Colonel (ret) Kurt Buller, certified Strengthsfinder coaches.

Leadership Camp Testimony

Leader Development Image

Intrepid was one of the best experiences of my life! It is a unique personal leadership immersion program developed and led by senior Special Ops cadre. I was challenged physically, mentally, and ethically while given the opportunity to engage and apply leadership skills & strengths in small group exercises, under stressful and dynamic conditions. The platform used was tactical military training, but I was learning life lessons, too—how to calm myself under pressure, integrate with and complement others, lead AND follow.

Intrepid Leadership Camp

Mr Buller and his team from Intrepid blew us away with his leadership camp. Our son learned how to control bleeding, use a map and compass, shoot an AR-15 rifle safely and lead missions with his teammates. He loved the nightly campfire discussions on ethics, Gold Star Families and core values. He now uses words like "sheep dog" and "service". Intrepid’s message of living a life of integrity and honor resonated completely with our son. We look forward to when our younger daughter will have the opportunity to engage in this amazing experience as well.
