RSA-Quantico is dedicated to providing realistic and unique unit training opportunities to units of all service components. Besides being the “intellectual” crossroads of the Corps, Quantico has some of the finest small caliber weapons ranges and ground maneuver areas in the United States. Additionally, RSA-Q offers several Training Simulator options aboard Camp Upshur. Also, challenge courses, gas chamber, and the swimming pool of The Basic School are available during certain periods of the year for weekend training.
Marine Corps Reserve units should contact the Reserve Unit Liaison with requests for use of Camp Upshur facilities and simulators, and detailed information of your training plan specifying what range or training area you are requesting. All other units/components should contact the Operations Chief. Information on specific ranges can be found on the Quantico Range Control website
Training Support Requests (TSR) are due 45 days prior to the day of occupation for USMCR drill weekends and active component/sister service requests, and 90 days out prior to the start of USMCR annual training evolutions, with the exception of real world missions, which are prioritized on a case-by-case basis. Due to a high operational tempo in summer months, units are strongly encouraged to submit requests as early as possible. USMCR units wishing to conduct their annual training aboard Camp Upshur should reach out to the Operations Chief to schedule an Initial Planning Conference prior to submitting a TSR.
