Pines JROTC cadets attend summer leadership camp

While some high school students lounge in front of the television this summer, nearly three dozen Pembroke Pines cadets rock-climbed, rappelled and canoed for a solid week of high-risk adventure.

More than 15 students from the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps at West Broward High and Flanagan High schools suited up for summer boot camp in mid-June at Boy Scout Camp Tanah Keeta in Tequesta.

The seven-day, 24-hour intensive summer experience taught the intrepid cadets to serve in various leadership positions designed to help boost their character, confidence, pride in accomplishment and develop their organizational skills.

That meant training in rock climbing, rappelling, geography, land navigation, water survival, low and high ropes and safety reaction courses.

The Camp Challenge also compliments the JROTC curriculum by motivating high schoolers to display their talent and skills, said Col. Rex Thompson, a JROTC camp coordinator.
