All Camp Programs
“Hey! It’s everyone’s favorite Merc with a mouth! I’ve teamed up with VIPAirsoft to help get you off the couch and into some serious airsoft action this summer with Merc Work. This magical summer experience will be filled with laughter, pizza and most importantly, the chance to hang out with me for five days. (You’re welcome mom!)
Think you got what it takes to me it into my elite squad of desperados? (That’s Spanish for “helpful fellows with firearms”) Each day you’ll learn some of my tricks of the trade that I’ve picked up from 20+ years of military and tactical operations.
– Close quarter combat (building clearing and stuff)
– Executive protection (how to take apart a protective team)
– Tactical combat casualty care (because you don’t have my healing factor)
– Party time dance break! (You’re gonna be so cool at your cousin’s wedding!)
Each day you will be put into teams of like minded airsoft players and you shall fight to the DEATH! No, not really. You’ll get a chance to play multiple scenario games based on some of my real world missions. Earn points each day for winning, being a good sportsman and other important character building stuff. Earn enough points and you’ll get a chance to join my merry band of Marauders! MAXIMUM EFFORT!

Summer Camp FAQ’s
Our general player waiver (the one you fill out each year) covers basic information whereas our camp waivers cover liability for our instructors and request additional health and media release information needed to host our camp programs.
The camp curriculum for Airsoft 101 and Spec Ops can be difficult for younger players to comprehend and follow. It is at the request of the instructors that players are at least 11 years old to participate. Some exceptions may apply on a case by case basis.
There are not enough resources currently available and with liability/safety issues, the camp will not be offering a car pool option. It is therefore the campers’ responsibility to arrange for a ride to and from camp.
The Special Operations camp program requires a uniform. The bottoms must be either cargo/duty/bdu pants in Khaki or ODGreen. Multicam, Woodland or A-TACS patterns are also approved. No jeans, sweatpants, slacks, joggers, windbreaker pants or shorts. They must also wear a plain colored black T-Shirt. T-Shirts must be tucked in. If your camper registers in advance, they will be provided with a camp uniform T-Shirt.
Gym shoes are required.
No jewelry. Long hair must be pulled back away from the face.
Campers are required to provide and have with them a spiral notebook and writing utensil everyday.
You can purchase uniform bottoms with the VIPAirsoft staff from the proshop or elsewhere.
Uniforms are required for Spec Ops camp only. The uniforms help to keep the campers in a realistic state of mind and allow for easier identification of teams.
It is the campers’ responsibility to ensure they are checked in by 8am when class starts. Please call and the let the staff know that you are either running late or are unable to make it for that day. There are no “make up” days if you miss a day of camp. It is critical that campers are present for the day’s lesson plan so they can be included and knowledgable about the scenarios. If a camper misses the lesson, it is their responsibility to ask their fellow campers about the information. There will be small refreshers each day as to the previous lessons for Airsoft 101 and Spec Ops.
Doors to the facility will open at 7:45am. Light breakfast items will be available.
Mike Simpson, the Director for Marauders Tactical Training and Phoenix International Security Group, will be leading the lessons and running the scenarios throughout camp along with his extensively trained team.
He has been conducting individual and team based training for civilian, law enforcement and military personnel since 1998.
Many of the skills and tactics developed for the training program are based on Mr. Simpson’s experience as a member of the US Air Force Security Forces and Assistant Team Leader on an Emergency Services Team.
