Around 40 children have been put through their paces this week by Royal Marines from 42 Commando.
All of the youngsters are members of Her Majesty's School Heroes, a support group for children of service men and women.
The workshop, at Bickleigh Barracks in Plymouth, gave them the chance to do commando-style challenges.
I think it's really important for the children of the servicemen and women to sort of see what their mums and dads get up to on a day to day basis.
There's not that much opportunity really for them to see that and I think it is really interesting and rewarding for them to do that and I think HMS Heroes gives them that platform.
