JROTC Cadet Leadership Challenge instruction packet.
Here are the main parts of the instructions that the DoDDS-Europe Director of Army Instruction has provided. In them you will find the answers to most of your questions about camp, including: packing list, prohibited items, activities and medical/physical requirements. Contact your SAI or AI if you have questions.
Here are some thoughts on things you should not forget to bring to camp:
- Bring a pillow and a blanket (you'll get a sleeping bag, but bring these for extra comfort).
- Bring shower shoes.
- Bring an old pair of sneakers . . . there are rocks in the river and your feet are going to get wet during the canoe trip!
- Bring boot blousers . . . they are available in the Military Clothing Sales Store for very little money; get several pair . . . for your ACUs and your poncho.
- If you must bring a camera, bring a small, cheap one.
- Bring a sweat suit . . . good for sports, double as shower clothes, double as PJs when it's cold.
- Hangers. Hangers. Hangers.
Don't bring to camp:
- Poggybait (that means food, snacks, etc.). Eat it on the bus or throw it away.
- Drugs that are not prescribed by your doctor.
- Alcohol or tobacco.
- Awards and decorations that you are not authorized to wear.
- Expensive cameras.
- Jewelry, watches or other expensive personal items.
- Your school yearbook.
- A cell phone is okay . . . but you'll turn it in on day 1. You're not going to need it.
- Weapons, explosives and things that are sharp and may hurt someone.
Here are some thoughts about what to bring on the bus:
- Bring a bottle of water and a couple of sandwiches, fruit, etc.
- Sunglasses (it gets sunny, even on the bus).
- A book or iPOD.
- About 3 Euro in small change (sometimes the toilet doesn't work on the bus . . . you'll want to use the loo at the Autobahn rest stop).
- That pillow you're bringing for your bunk.
- Dress for the weather. If it's going to be warm you can dress down (sometimes the air conditioner on the bus just doesn't work!).
