Are you a teenager yearning to join Hellboy in the fight against evil occult, supernatural forces? Now you can, thanks to the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense Training Camp in Portland, Oregon. Operated by Trackers, an outdoor skills training company, BPRD Training Camp (aka Hellboy Camp) actually sounds like a fun way to spend a week over the summer. Unfortunately, is only open to ages 9 to 17. From the Trackers site:
We immerse you in tactical training of all forms, including survival skills in any environment (both earthly and non), martial arts and self-defense specific to preternatural entities, hand to hand weaponry (we train foam swords, bows and more) and forensic investigation. All these key skills that every agent must have, plus you are steeped in the history of our Bureau and legacy of paranormal research.
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.
