In accordance with the National Youth Policy which envisages that the youth of the country should spend at least one fifth of their total time spent in an educational institution on out door activities, our respected Founder President has directed that compulsory Military Training Camp for all students, both PG and UG of Amity institutions be conducted. Accordingly, The Amity Indian Military Education Society has established a Camp in tented accommodation at the Amity Education Valley Manesar, to give the students an exposure to outdoor life in a natural habitat which fulfills some of the objectives enshrined in the National Youth Policy. The camp is called the “Amity Green Horns Military Training Camp”.
General Instructions contained in the succeeding paragraphs are guidelines to be followed by the participants to enable them to draw maximum benefit and for smooth running of the camp. All participants are expected to read these instructions carefully prior to setting out for the Camp.
The aim of Military Training Camp is:-
- To inculcate an essence of camaraderie and brotherhood amongst the students of different Amity Institutions.
- To bring in Synergy and Team Spirit among participants.
- To provide an opportunity to the participants to understand the work ethos and the broader details about the Armed Forces.
- To provide facilities for adventure related training and sports activities in an eco – friendly and pollution free environment.
- To expose the students to subjects of general awareness such as disaster management, Nuclear, Biological, Chemical and Radiological Threat and counter measures etc.
- To inculcate the habit of participation in group activities and group discussions.
- To expose the students to the essentials of physical well-being and fitness.
In order to minimize disturbance and break in the academic curriculum, MTCs are organized as combined camps for both boys and girls, and therefore it is expected that an entire class attends the camp together. Separate administrative infrastructure for boys and girls have been created at AEV Manesar.
CERTIFICATE OF ATTENDANCE
On completion of the camp, students will be awarded a Certificate of having attended the camp successfully.

DETAILMENT/ALLOTMENT OF VACANCIES
At the beginning of the academic session, DG AIMES will issue a tentative schedule of Camps spreading from first week of Sep to mid April. Based on the overall schedule of the training camps, all Amity institutions are required to project their demand of vacancies both for boys and girls. While projecting the requirement of vacancies, institutes will indicate two choices of dates and total number of enrolled students in their respective Institutes/Programme/ Department, and the No. of students to be detailed for MTC, as per the format given below:-
|S. No.||Programme/ Institute/ Department||Total Students Enrolled ||Nos Earmarked for MTC||Choice of Dates (give two choices)||Remarks
| || || || || ||
| || || || || ||
Firm detailment on Military Training Camp will be intimated to the institutions concerned through letter/e-mail. On receipt of the same, the Institutions will nominate a ‘Faculty Member In Charge’ for the camp who will brief the students being detailed for Military Training, about the essential details of the camp, expected code of conduct and preparations for the Camp.
The institutions will submit nominal rolls of students attending the Camp in duplicate which must reach the office of the Director General, Amity Indian Military Education Society located in ‘D’ Block (Fourth Floor), Sector-125 Campus, Noida, at least 4 days prior to the date of commencement of the camp. Indemnity Bonds as per specimen attached, duly signed by each participant and their parents/guardians will be submitted along with the nominal roll of the students attending the camp (applicable to Non-AUUP institutions).
Each institution will also nominate minimum one faculty member to accompany the students who would stay with them for the entire duration of the Camp.

In case of any query / assistance the faculty member should contact the camp commandant. Children and family members of the faculty are not allowed on the camp.
OABC (CREDIT COURSE)
Since MTC has been included as an Open Elective (OABC) Course, among many others available in the basket, the institutions will ensure that such students who opt for MTC as Credit Course are detailed on priority and the nominal roll of such students is forwarded separately to this office as per the following format :-
|S. No.||Enrollment No.||Name Of Student||Department||Programme||Sem
| || || || || ||
| || || || || ||
Students attending MTC as Open Elective (OABC), will be assessed on their performance on the course and will be awarded points on the scale of 1 to 10.
Since, OABC courses are offered only in the first semester, the institutions must ensure that all students opting for MTC as Open Elective (OABC) are detailed to attend the camp in the First Semester itself.
Students earmarked for Military Training accompanied by the nominated faculty member should arrive at Amity Education Valley under arrangements of the respective institutions by 11.00 am on the first day of the camp. On arrival, the students will be grouped into platoons and sections by the Camp Commandant.
