Recruitment and Training

Find out if you have what it takes to join an elite team of paranormal investigators combating the forces of darkness from all across the globe. We immerse you in tactical training of all forms, including survival in any environment (both earthly and non), martial arts and self-defense specific to praeternatural entities, hand to hand weaponry (we train foam swords, bows and more) and forensic investigation. All the key skills that every agent must have, plus you are steeped in the history of the Bureau and legacy of paranormal research.

Call to Action

Recruits get actual field time during the entire camp. Learning is hands-on with essential survival skills such as shelter building, stealth and tactical and martial arts training.

Overnight Camp

Grade 6-8 & 9-12 - Overnight Camp Older recruits join us at Camp Trackers near Sandy, Oregon for a Sunday to Friday overnight. There we investigate reports of dark figures and strange happenings at the camp.
