A few of the instructors will be offering more individualized hands on training opportunities throughout the year for smaller groups.
Please stay tuned for more information.

Whether you live near the coast, in a city, on a farm, or up in the mountains, there are a number of things you can do to be prepared when disaster strikes. Don’t just worry about it! Have some fun with us getting ready, so you can have peace of mind.
Please join us at the beautiful camp Ramblewood in Maryland this October to learn skills and share tips about preparedness. Take part in a fun community of people who understand that getting prepared for the unexpected is not a hardship but an opportunity for learning.
All the best,

We’d like to personally thank everyone that attended the event. We couldn’t have asked for a more awesome crowd. Everyone was polite, courteous, positive, highly motivated and most of all…. patient with the map
We all made many new friends that we hope to see again next year. Yes, there will be a next year and we’re already planning on making it much better! We’ll be sending a short survey out within the next few weeks. Please be on the lookout for it and answer the questions as honestly as possible. We’ve already received a lot of great feedback and are looking for more.
Thanks again for making the event such a huge success. We hope that you all had as much fun as we did. Stay tuned for updates in the near future.
Moe, Carl & the Disaster Boot Camp Team!
Emergency preparedness is a topic that should be on everyone’s mind. The Boot Camp team hit the road this summer to spread the word about Disaster Boot Camp and the importance of being prepared.
From Bass Pro shops and the Emergency Preparedness Expo, to the Buck WIld Expo and the Carlisle Sports and Outdoor Expo we had a blast. Special thanks to everyone who visited our booths. If you missed it, check out some of the event highlights below.

Disaster Preparedness Bootcamp has secured significant sponsorship
for the upcoming DPB event to be held in Maryland on October 4-6, 2013.
Organizers have long said that they viewed the event and the tools and
information that it provides to be a public service to help families and
individuals to prepare to survive any disaster. In accordance with this
sentiment, DPB has utilized the sponsorship investment to drastically
reduce the price of entry.
New pricing for admission is as follows:
1-Day Pass $69.00
3-Day Weekend Pass $99.00
DPB is also providing credit options for those who have already
purchased a pass. DPB team members have already begun
contacting current pass holders to discuss options for their
purchase credit to ensure that all attendees are afforded the
opportunity to enjoy the savings.

We’re psyched to have Chris Hackett, the current host of the Science Channel’s show Stuck with Hackett, attending the Bootcamp as a special guest!
During the weekend (October 4th – 6th at Ramblewood), Chris will be working on a special project taking ordinary discarded household appliances and turning them into useful tools. You’ll witness first hand how one man’s garbage can be transformed into another man’s treasure.
Bringin’ the obtanium!
