About Marine Boot Camp

Marine boot camp isn’t easy. At 13 weeks, it’s the longest basic training in all of the U.S. Armed Forces. 

Marines qualify on their rifles at further distances. And they face the Crucible, a 54 hour event with 45 miles of tough hiking with rucks and combat gear.

As a former Marine, I started this site to do one thing: help you prepare for Marine Corps Boot Camp. 

Below you’ll find links to the training schedule, and information about each event during the intense 13 weeks of basic training.
