Why SWAT Academy?
The SWAT Academy: Suspense Writers Adventure and Training is an action-packed, four-day training opportunity for authors, screenwriters, and video game developers.
Character development and mastering the industry of publishing are equally difficult unless you’ve tremendous experience with one or both.

The Straight Shot:
– This is a serious camp that promises a safe and fun adventure. Don’t be intimidated by the macho promo stuff. While there will be plenty of real-life Alpha heroes on staff, the goal is to give you the opportunity to experience what it’s really like to live the raw rush of an adrenaline-junkie’s life.
– This is an all-inclusive adventure for one low price at a world renowned specialized training and international counter-terrorism facility. And you won’t be nickled and dimed to add on specialty classes. Everyone will have the chance to get the experiences they want. But space is limited and expected to sell out quickly.
– Pay-One-Price – the all-inclusive ticket includes your:
