In local town recreuiting station manytime they conduct some type of Physical Phitness Event. Many time it is once every week . Participate in this event. Also it is good for you to connect with other future solder like you. And if you have any question these recrutiers can guide you.

       Hometown Recruiter Assistance Program (HRAP)
This Program  allows enlisted Soldiers who have recently completed Advanced Individual Training (AIT), One Station Unit Training (OSUT) or Army Civilian Acquired Skills Training (ACASP) to return to their hometowns to assist the local recruiters by sharing their Army training experiences with family, friends, high school classmates, Future Soldiers, veterans, and community leaders.
They might be best resource because they are fresh graduate from the boot camp.

What to Pack for Boot Camp?

Do not bring lots of cloth because you will be wearing Army cloth when you will reach, so do not over pack. Do not bring video game, Laptop because you will not allow to use it during basic training.
I recommend you to bring stamp and envelops.  Also learn some tricks to folding cloth.  Because you will have many army gears to pack in small place, so just learn folding technique. Search in youtube, you will find it.
