Apply for Homestead Apprentice 2024

Homestead Apprentice is a unique opportunity to receive world-class training, mentoring, and experience around the multifaceted challenges of homesteading. If you are fragile, weak, or easily offended, this is not for you. It will be difficult. Your body and ego will be tired and sore. It might be the hardest thing you’ve ever done. It just might change your life.

The program consists of two parts:

The Gauntlet

May 3-6, 2024
Special Operations Equipment – Camden, TN

Applicants will be selected for a 3 day challenge to compete for an opportunity to be invited to participate in The Main Event, completing a series of tasks and challenges to show The Board what you are made of.

The Main Event

June 10-30, 2024
Special Operations Equipment – Camden, TN

A sub-set of contestants chosen from The Gauntlet will receive thorough training, mentorship, and experience in homesteading over the course of several weeks. Contestants will receive world-class mentoring and training from industry leaders and experts, while also competing in challenges to demonstrate their capabilities. The winner will be qualified to win multiple prizes (to be determined) and potentially even a job working at the SOE Compound. 

Do you have what it takes?

Submit your application to The Board below. In your video, introduce yourself and explain why you think you should be selected for Homestead Apprentice.

If invited, I will provide my own transportation to and from SOE in Camden, TN for the event(s).

I give Special Operations Equipment permission to take and use photographs or recordings taken during any part of the program, including the content of this application, and use such material for any purpose in print, advertisements, films or videos and online and broadcast presentations of any sort without expectation of compensation in any form.
