I'm not really part of the SAR academy scene, so I won't speak to the quality (or lack thereof) of the school. What I know about it is that it's been run in one form or another since the mid 90s (I staffed a previous iteration in the late 80s-early 90s). It was originally held "In the field," as in drive to the middle of nowhere, then hang a left and keep going until sunset. Well, not really, but it was held in the middle of a national forest, in tents, with classroom space under the most convenient tree. It's evolved over the years, and is now held at Camp Grayling (about 30 miles from it's original home), in buildings, with some meals provided, and plenty of room to roam on 100,000+ acres of range land and training areas.This is also the first year it's being considered as a national activity.More info here
