- JROTC Cadet Leadership Challenge (JCLC) 2021 (tentative)

Camp Carolina JCLC is a 7 day JROTC summer camp held at Fort Jackson, SC where approximately 900 Cadets from majority of the South Carolina Army JROTC programs will meet.  Cadets will be fully engaged in activities such as rappelling, canoeing, obstacle courses, zip lines, orienteering, drill and ceremonies, and various other team building events. The intent is to challenge cadets in an austere environment and develop their leadership, communication, and social skills.

For 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 SJHS has had Distinguished Honor Cadets (top 3) out over 900+ Cadets.

JCLC 2021 will be held at Fort Jackson, SC, tentatively, from 20-26 Jun 21 (Sun-Sat). We historically are given 24 slots for SJHS Army JROTC. 

This year 1 Cadet from each school will be selected to attend a Drone Camp where they will receive the FAA Remote Pilot Certification.  They must be 16 years old and have government approved identification (Real ID driver's licence, passport, etc...) The camp will be from 20-26 June. They will be housed with the other Cadets separately and will go to another location for training daily.  The last day will include testing for certification.  Over 100,000 people in the US have their certification and the test pass rate is 92%.  See Attachment 5 below for more information.

If interested in being a female chaperone (above the age of 21), please contact SFC Currie or LTC Bartley. There is no cost and a small monetary stipend will be provided.
