Work Hard, Play Hard
Hargrave maintains an active and involved Student Activities Department. A mixture of activities are planned for closed and incentive weekends, both on and off campus. Cadets are welcome to sign up for these supported activities, which allow them time away from campus to enjoy the many opportunities available in the region.
Not every activity is for every Cadet. Student Activities strives to provide a variety of opportunities to the Cadet Corps, and there is something for everyone. For Cadets who prefer to remain on campus, Hargrave hosts a 50-meter indoor pool, tennis courts, a military obstacle course, a climbing tower, a leadership reaction course, and a paintball course.
Student Activities oversees trips to grocery and home goods stores to allow Cadets the opportunity to stock up on the necessities for life on the barracks.
PADI SCUBA certification (with a lifetime PADI Certification) courses are also offered.

Open Weekend — Students are able to depart campus
Closed Weekend — All Cadets are required to be on campus
Special Weekend — All Cadets are required to be on campus for a special event (Mother’s Day weekend, Military Ball weekend)
