Camp Ethan Allen, VTNG | Jericho, VT

COST: $350

Green Mountain Academies Advanced Training Squadron is ground team focused experience.  The ATS is open to cadets of any age and senior members who meet the pre-requisites.  During our weeklong event you can expect to gain hands on experience in day and night land navigation, search operations, survival skills, crash site operations, mountaineering, and casualty evacuation.  Students will participate in a local exercise where their skills will be evaluated using realistic scenarios.  Our Goal is to have every student complete GTM 3 and 2 by the completion of the program. Applicants for this program should be in good physical shape as you will be on your feet and/or walking with your 24-hour pack for several hours every day so well broken in boots are necessary.
