Camp Challenge: Summer Leadership Camps

Whether during the school year or throughout the summer months, Army and Navy Academy’s focus is set on imparting the values of honor, integrity, respect, responsibility, compassion, and gratitude on all campers and Cadets. No ANA camp emphasizes this mission more than Camp Challenge leadership development camps, the Academy’s unique and predominant summer programs.

Camp Challenge (JROTC Leadership)

Camp Challenge JROTC is the Academy’s summer leadership development program, established in 2010. It is the only credit-producing Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) summer leadership course west of the Mississippi.

Designed for high school students, our JROTC Camp Challenge course will reward successful participants with 180 hours of Leadership Education and Training (LET). During our four-week course, participants will develop self-confidence as leaders and as active team members.

Camp Challenge High School

Camp Challenge High School contains formal leadership instruction in addition to “Foundations of Success” subject matter. Campers will attain invaluable life skills, including self-confidence, team-building, accountability, discipline, and respect.

This camp is perfect for the teen who is interested in learning about leadership, but not interested in pursuing JROTC coursework.

Camp Challenge Middle School

Camp Challenge Middle School is ideal for middle school students who are just beginning to explore their leadership potential or interest in JROTC. Campers will participate in team-building activities, a community service project, and more, all while developing valuable leadership skills.
