Squad STX is a unique alternative to traditional summer camp and Boy Scouts. Our program is an overnight team camping and leadership program in the Texas Hill Country designed and run by former US Army infantry officers to help train boys for a stronger future and expand their leadership potential. This course is for motivated boys age 11-17 interested in less kumbaya and more hooah!
Learn the basics of building shelters, reading maps & terrain, night hiking, knife handling, patrol planning, staying hydrated, keeping feet dry, and other outdoor skills. Dinosaur Valley State Park, Texas is the perfect camping location. It’s located at the edge of the Texas Hill Country, with hills, trails, and a swimming hole running through the middle of the entire park.
Squad STX is run by a team of Army buddies that are passionate about imparting basic but very important leadership lessons often overlooked outside of the military. The skills that our team works to instill in participants represent a combined 30 years of leading and training young men on five continents.
Today’s youth often grow up in a cocoon of technology that shields them from real-world life lessons that are vital to success. We believe that less screen time and more physical, action-oriented programs like this are essential for young men to become grounded in actual leadership.
