The NJROTC curriculum and instructional activities are designed to develop their leadership ability regardless of their career path.Being a NJROTC cadet is not all work and no fun. Cadets may attend award ceremonies and military balls sponsor by the NJROTC unit. They can also take part in school activities and athletic events as part of a color guard or drill team, or participate in a field meet against other NJROTC units. Other activities include field trips and tours to colleges, military installations, and trips on naval ships and naval aircraft. Selected cadets get to attend a mini-boot camp or the NJROTC Leadership Academy in the summer.
