Devil Pups History

In 1953, retired Marine Corps Colonel Duncan Shaw, Sr., learned that a group of teenagers burned an American flag at a Southern California high school.  Aggravated by this activity and the attitudes among American youth it represented, Colonel Shaw and a group of retired Marine Corps Reserve Officers, now prominent Southern California businessmen, asked the Commandant of the Marine Corps to help with a community benefit project that would aid the development of character qualities in teenage boys and girls, and enable them to become healthier and more successful young citizens.

What is Devil Pups?

Devil Pups is an non-profit organization designed to help boys and girls from all backgrounds gain self-confidence and learn to take responsibility for their actions. Devil Pups is not a Marine Corps sponsored program. The program is not a 'mini boot camp' para-military or recruiting organization for the Marine Corps. Encampment Commanders are employees of Devil Pups, Inc.
Who can participate?

Any healthy boy or girl between the ages of 14 and 17 is eligible to apply to the Devil Pups citizenship program that resides in the states of California, Arizona and Nevada.  The requirements are as follows: 

How to participate?
The application process is done in person with a local liaison representative in your area. 

Devil Pups, Inc. Liaison Representatives (LR's) cover the major cities and counties in the following states: California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, & Idaho. You must contact them directly to apply to Devil Pups, Inc.. LR's have the responsibility of screening, physically and medically qualified 14 - 17 year old boys and girls interested in applying for the summer encampment program.

Devil Pups, Inc. is a regional program only. It is held annually with the cooperation and support of the United States Marine Corps. Due to their limited facilities and active military training schedule at Camp Pendleton Marine Base, the Marine Corps will only allow Devil Pups, Inc. permission to bring 600 Devil Pups aboard their base to conduct the 10 Day Good Citizenship - Physical Development Program during the month of July each year. We are proud to have graduated 50,000 pups and counting.

A youth may only graduate from the Devil Pups, Inc. program once as we have limited space for the number of qualified applicants we get. You can contact your local LR as early as March or April to begin the application and qualification process for that summer's encampment.

Individuals are never required to pay for the Devil Pup experience, but parents may make donations if they desire. The entire Devil Pups Citizenship Program is accomplished at no cost to the government. Currently it is estimated that $495.00 per Devil Pup, needs to be raised to pay for the 10-day encampment experience which is done through generous grants, fundraisers, and individual contributions for which we are extremely grateful.

An interested boy or girl and/or their parents living in California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah & Idaho should contact their nearest Devil Pups LR to determine eligibility. Each area is given a specific quota of participants to admit.
