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.
