New Recruits are first required to visit us at one of our Drill in the Park events. Please visit our Schedule of Events page and RSVP for the most convenient date for you, so that we know you are coming.

Next, New Recruits will need to Sign Up on the Institute website, and complete all Required Forms. Institute staff will help you do this during your first Drill in the Park.

Before you are cleared to participate in a full Battle or Campaign event, the Institute requires that you complete a sufficient amount of training. This can be accomplished in one of two ways: attend one Camp of Instruction, or participate in two additional Drill in the Park events. 

To register for a Camp of Instruction, make sure you are logged in, and then register by clicking "Report for Duty" on a Camp of Instruction listing on the Schedule of Events.

Once you have completed your training, you will be cleared to participate in a full Battle or Campaign event, where you will become a part of the epic tale of our fight for a New Birth of Freedom! Just log in and return to the Schedule of Events page to register for events. Please remember that the same event instructions noted above apply to Battle and Campaign events as well. If you plan to be with us for the long haul, and would like to save on event fees and be eligible to earn rank, please also consider completing an Extended Enlistment.
