“We are happy to announce that airsoft is on this Summer! With some adjustments to follow the CDC guidelines which are outlined below, formation of our young men, while they wage epic airsoft battles, will continue.”
Experience airsoft Heights style! Acres of woods, forts, and airsoft battles: a recipe for a one of a kind camp experience. Each day the boys will be engaged in a different themed airsoft battle/game, while learning team building and leadership skills.
At the start of camp the boys will be divided into platoons, these will be their “brothers in arms” for the remainder of the week. The platoons’ first challenge will be to take and pass a gun safety course, where the boys will learn how to properly and safely handle an airsoft weapon. After that the fun begins. The boys will be building their own fortifications that they will be defending each day. Battles will include: elimination, capture the flag, lone survivor and many others. Each platoon will also compete in marksmanship, quick draw and “target discernment” challenges.
As the week progresses the boys will hear talks about some of the greatest battles and military heroes of our time including General George Washington, “Stonewall” Jackson, General Eisenhower, Maj. Richard Winters, to name only a few. The focus of each talk will be to not only teach the boys about these heroes, but also to present the virtues that these great leaders possessed and to help them make resolutions and form habits that will last beyond the week of camp.
Social Distance Guidelines:
*To ensure everyone’s safety, all participants will self-report to our airsoft site in Germantown, MD. We will have staggered drop off and pick times, ranging from 9-930 for drop off and 230-3 for pick up. We will let you know what your specific dropoff/pickup time is before camp starts.
*Each group will be capped at 10 members, with one counselor. There will be three groups total, and each group will be entirely separated from the others, only interacting during gameplay (at long range). We would be happy to accommodate group requests.
*Counselors will monitor and maintain social distancing during gameplay.
*Counselors will be keeping a special eye out for fever/aches/chills/coughing during the day. Any camper who experiences any of these symptoms must stay home (per CDC guidelines).
*All Participants and Counselors will wear a facemask throughout the day. To be clear, during the games the boys will only need to wear their protective airsoft facemask, as they have in the past. Outside of the games, the boys should have a face covering; this could be a cloth mask, gaiter scarf, or a surgical-type mask.
*We will not be able to offer pizza lunches this year. Therefore every camper should bring a bagged lunch and plenty of water. We will have refills of water available, but the boys must drink from their own container.
*Gun rentals: We will not be able to offer any gun/mask rentals this summer. For those that need an airsoft gun we are able to sell our used guns and masks, but supplies are limited. The cost is $130, which will include a gun, battery, smart-charger, and a mask. Please contact us directly if you would like to purchase an airsoft gun/mask.
For the camp, bring: Airsoft weapon (FPS no higher than 450), safety mask (must cover entire face). Long sleeves/pants recommended and athletic/hiking shoes.
