Q:  Who can join the Young Marines?

A: The Young Marines is for boys and girls ages 8 through completion of high school. The only enrollment requirement is that a youth must be in good standing at school.

Q: How do I join the Young Marines?

A: First, locate a Young Marine unit near you. Contact the unit directly to learn more about enrollment dates, meeting times/location, unit dues etc.

Q: What is Young Marines Boot Camp?

A: Upon joining a local Young Marine unit, the youth undergo an orientation program, generally spread out over several weekly meetings.  This orientation program is affectionately called “Boot Camp.”  The youth learn the general Young Marine subjects such as history, close order drill, physical fitness, customs and courtesies, and military rank structure. The youths do NOT attend a “military-style” resident program. This is not a program where you send your children for an extended period. On average, units meet once or twice per week year round.
