About this camp

Army and Navy Academy Summer Camp
 

Initially established in 1943, Army and Navy Academy Summer Programs (Camp Challenge & Camp Pacific) focus on mentoring campers and creating a supportive environment for personal growth and developing good character, leadership skills, and responsibility while enhancing self-esteem and confidence in all campers.

Program participants are actively involved and accountable for their skill development and personal growth. Receiving staff support and guidance when necessary, campers meet challenges and share experiences with their peers that help instill pride and a sense of responsibility. This emphasis on personal growth is what makes our high-challenge, high-reward summer programs truly unique.


The Our Kids review of Army and Navy Academy Summer Camp

 

Army and Navy Academy is a military academy cast in the mold of like schools throughout the US, including West Point. They have a long history, to be sure, and they represent a rich educational tradition, one that Army and Navy is rightly very proud to take part within. Founded in 1910, students are attracted to Army and Navy by those traditions, and throughout their time at the school they remain cognizant of their place within something much larger than themselves. The life of the school is structured and highly organized and that, too, is a primary draw. Character and ethical leadership are the key foci of the program, whether or not students are looking forward to a career in the military.

While the summer programs aren’t school proper, they extend the work of the academic program, and similarly are based around challenge and personal growth. Values are a key aspect, with participants working together toward common goals. While the challenges may be significant, the rewards are as well, including a sense of accomplishment, inclusion, resilience, and growth.

BENEFITS OF ATTENDING LEADERSHIP CAMPexpand

Since joining Army and Navy Academy, I have noticed a huge change in how I behave and treat other people. People have commented how they’ve noticed that I am more respectful, outgoing, and more of a leader. I have also seen a change in my attitude; If I am about to do something I don’t want to do, I try to make the best out of it and stay positive.

I give credit to the Academy’s great leadership education for these little improvements I have noticed. Just because you don’t attend the Academy year-round, doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on the benefits. The Army and Navy Academy offers a summer leadership program that allows it’s campers to reap the benefits of attending the Academy. But instead of a full semester, you get practically the same experience in just a few short weeks.

Leadership camps improve not only your manners and behavior, but your personal morale, appearance, and confidence. While most summer programs are recreational and don’t provide much benefit upon your exit, leadership camps, like the ones offered at Army and Navy Academy, are a great way to gain skills necessary for dealing with real-life situations.

The leadership camps at Army and Navy Academy will give you opportunities to build your confidence and strengthen you physically. They will also challenge you mentally, so that you will be able to cope with situations that may seem hard in the future. For all those who attend a leadership camp, there is always a good experience to be taken away from it.

An eHow.com article written by Nicole Papa states the benefits of attending a leadership program. She wrote, “Leadership is one of the most influential elements of governments, organizations and businesses. Leadership training provides leaders with the tools, knowledge and ability to impact and inspire their followers. Leadership programs provide the opportunity for leaders to sharpen their skills and share their experiences with other leaders to mature in their effectiveness, and they produce leaders that are able to lead with confidence and ease.”

With Camp Challenge, Army and Navy Academy’s two and four week leadership programs, campers will learn time management, life skills, teamwork, and of course, leadership. Camp Challenge is offered to anyone going into the sixth grade and is also available to students who just finished their senior year of high school.

The four week JROTC Camp Challenge program is a high school credit-offering course for anyone interested in getting ahead in the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps. For those who complete the four week program, 1 year of LET or, Leadership Education and Training, will be granted.

During Camp Challenge, you will learn everyday subjects like learning how to manage money and how to take care of your personal hygiene. You will also learn about the military and U.S. government, from how to properly wear a uniform and marching, to roles of U.S. government officials and military ranks.

Campers at Camp Challenge 2016 like Camilo Quiroz of Honduras said, “The leadership program has helped me to be a leader among my friends, and be more responsible and respectful around my peers.”

As you can see, everyone can benefit from leadership training. Around campus, you will hear that it takes a good follower to be a good leader. In today’s society, being a great leader is something many aspire to be and is seen as an important factor for business management, government work, construction, and almost any other job you could think of.
