Cadets Head to Lake Arrowhead for Summer Camp

JROTC camp activitiesJROTC cadets from high schools all over the San Diego Unified School District will be heading to Lake Arrowhead the week after school ends for the annual Leadership Camp.

Sponsored by the U.S. Army Cadet Command, the trip away from home allows new student leaders to experience their new role, while all participants learn skills such as map-compass orientation, wildlife and habitat sciences, environmental safety and wilderness safety.

They'll also have time for fun activities such as horseback riding, archery, canoeing, rappelling, mountain biking and obstacle courses.

JROTC teachers at individual schools picked cadets that had excelled throughout the year in academics, physical fitness and leadership potential. Most importantly, this outward-bound camp experience rewards students for their personal achievements and gives them an opportunity to build new friendships.
