Boot Camp is a slight twist on the sports game genre. The player is in a military boot camp, and needs to pass a variety of training exercises so that they can eventually complete important missions. Some of the events they'll compete in are the obstacle course, firing ranges, iron man race, arm wrestling, and a fight with their instructor. Gameplay is similar to that of the Epyx Games series, with many unique events that must be completed to move on. Two players can play simultaneously, or one player against the computer.

Without being noted on the package or instructions, Boot Camp supports the Adlib music board. However, the music played through the Adlib (two simultaneous voices, single instrument) must have been a last-minute addition. For some music pieces you may suspect the game is malfunctioning and producing random notes... however, examination of the "" file confirms that the notes are not randomly-generated.
