Summer Session II Begins

Our Summer Leadership Program Session II got officially under way this week.  On Sunday campers enjoyed their first meal together and then took part in an ice-breaker activity called speed-friending.

Monday was the first full day of camp and it started off with a breakfast formation followed by orientation, a campus tour, drill and ceremonies, leadership and robotics lessons, sports, and a special leadership presentation by LTC Jones from the U.S. Military Academy.

Tuesday all of our participants spent the day at West Point. The day began with a three-hour Leader Reaction Course. On the course each obstacle presented a unique physical and mental challenge that required squads to plan and execute under a time limit. After having lunch onsite, our students had a two-hour campus tour provided by professional West Point tour guides.
