Summer Leadership Challenge

Leadership is a lifelong skill that can be learned and developed. Hargrave’s Summer Leadership Challenge engages students in a two-week leadership skills training program. Completing this camp will result in a Certificate of Completion and awarding of the Hargrave Crest. The Crest is commonly provided to new Cadets who have completed a similar program during the main school year. This camp is designed to be both challenging and fun. While not all-inclusive, the Leadership Challenge Camp provides a glimpse into the opportunities and activities afforded to our full-time Cadets.

Hargrave has forged many of the nation’s leaders, providing them with the opportunities, training, and experience needed to build mind, body, and spirit. The Leadership Challenge Camp is designed to provide an introduction to military customs and courtesies, proper wearing of a uniform, basic physical training, and survival/outdoors skills. Leadership Challenge participants will train on Hargrave’s military-standard obstacle course and climbing tower and utilize our 220 acre campus to learn and practice basic map reading, land navigation, and physical fitness/endurance.
