ROTC Advanced Camp
The ROTC Advanced Camp is at Fort Knox, Kentucky and required for ROTC Cadets nationwide to attend during the summer between their Junior and Senior undergraduate years. Advanced Camp is the U.S. Army Cadet Command's capstone training event and the U.S. Army's largest training exercise.
The purpose of this event is to train U.S. Army ROTC Cadets to Army standards, to further develop leadership skills, and to evaluate U.S. Army Officer potential. Successful completion of Advanced Camp is a prerequisite to becoming an Army officer through ROTC.
The 29-day course starts with individual training and leads to collective training, building from simple to complex tasks. This building-block approach permits integration of previously-learned skills into follow-on training. This logical, common-sense training sequence is maintained for each training cycle. Every day at Advanced Camp is a day of training.
While enrolled in the UC Davis ROTC Program courses, lab, and training events are structured to prepare Cadets for Advanced Camp. Check out our video below of our Small Arms Weapons Range at Camp Roberts, CA to see how we trained and will continue to train our Cadets for the Basic Rifleman Marksmanship (BRM) qualification required at Advanced Camp.
