Welcome to Teen (JROTC) Leadership Challenge Camp. This is not a Mini-Boot Camp, it is a Mini-Officer Candidate School (OCS) consisting of a series of Reaction Course events that are physically, mentally, and emotionally challenging. These events have been tailored to the needs and abilities of teenagers. These events are designed to build character, stimulate mature attitudes, and assist teenagers in developing the life skills that will allow them to be successful as adolescents and later as adults. Our program does not emphasize activities normally associated with other Leadership Camps which in most cases would more appropriately be called Orientation or Mini-Boot Camps. It is specifically designed for upcoming teenagers, both JROTC Cadets and Non-JROTC teens 14 to 18 years of age currently enrolled in high school. This is an intense leadership training course designed to produce leaders who can succeed in any endeavor of adolescent and adult life. This is training for future officers in the military, captains of industry, political leaders, government and public service leaders and the heads of organizations of all types. This training is primarily experiential as opposed to instructional such as is employed at school. Students learn by doing, failing, trying it again, and finally getting it right. Experiential training subscribes to the proposition that we learn more from our mistakes and failures, than we do from our successes. Students come to relish every success and failure they are able to garner at our camps, and they soon learn that both these result in the kinds of valuable life lessons that are not soon forgotten. Our camps accommodate 50 coed participants and we have five or more qualified male and female instructors on hand at all times. This is a ratio of one instructor per ten participants which is more than the ACCT requirement of one instructor for 15 participants. Our instructors are all certified to ACCT standards (Association for Challenge Course Technology) to facilitate all of our outdoor Ground Based Initiative Events, as well as our Low Ropes Course events. All instructors also have had fingerprint background checks, both state and FBI, and have been cleared to work with adolescents. The expected outcomes of this training are: 1. Teens who after camp participate in more school activities and receive higher grades. 2. Teens who are moving towards adulthood, ready to put aside the things of childhood, and start taking more responsibility for themselves and their lives. 3. Teens who embrace challenges with a can-do attitude. 4. Teens who understand that all failure moves them a step closer to success. 5. Teens who will seriously start considering a college education as a possible goal. 6. Teens who have learned to resolve conflict for the benefit of all concerned. 7. Teens who are familiar with, and ready to embrace and practice, the Leadership Styles, Principles and Traits they have learned at Teen (JROTC) Leadership Camps. We are training the leaders of tomorrow who will be directing our military, businesses, industries, and government. We are very passionate about our work, and very compassionate for the participants placed in our charge during this training. Please call of rmore informaiton.
