SLS camp is offered to Junior ROTC programs in high schools across the country and is designed to educate and instill a sense of responsibility, self-discipline, and citizenship and promote community service in the cadets. More than 1,000 retired U.S. Air Force instructors accomplish this through classroom education and hands-on learning experiences.
Cadets attended classes at the Airman Leadership School, participated in physical training sessions with the Special Tactics Training Squadron and received numerous hands-on learning experiences. Cadets also participated in leadership and team-building exercises to include a leadership reaction course with the STTS, self-aid buddy care, and land and water survival training.
To facilitate a friendly competition, cadets will be split into four flights who will compete to earn points for how quickly and well they complete various exercises. They will also be randomly quizzed on leadership skills gained throughout the course. At the end of the week, cadets will attend a graduation ceremony where they will receive a certificate of completion. The winning flight will be recognized and coined.
