Field Training Exercises
Each semester, Culper Battalion participates in a Field Training Exercises (FTX) in order to prepare cadets for Advance Camp. These three day long training exercises allows cadets to use the skills they learn on campus in the field.
In the fall, Culper Battalion participates in Fall FTX where cadets from both companies, Alpha and Bravo Companies, will train together working on individual skills such as field craft, land navigation, battle drills, etc.
In the spring, Culper Battalion participates in Spring JFTX (Joint Field Training Exercises) where cadets have the opportunity to work together with other battalions. Culper Battalion works with the Red Storm Battalion (St. John's University), Empire Battalion (CUNY Schools), and Ram Battalion (Fordham University) throughout Spring JFTX. Cadets will continue to work on skills such as field craft, land navigation, battle drills, etc.
