Wasilla AFJROTC never breaks from being the best they can be. Before summer vacation starts for the Wasilla corps, many cadets attend a camping trip called CLC (cadet leadership camp). The camp earns the students a half credit and teaches survival skills while testing the students on the leadership abilities they learned throughout the year. The cadets enjoy multiple outdoor activities, hiking Mt. Marathon, taking a Resurrection Bay cruise and hiking to Fort McGilvray in Caines Head State Recreation Area.

“The cadets must do a qualifying hike up Lazy Mountain to see if they will be able to hike Mt. Marathon,” SMSgt Walker said. In the qualifying hike, students must reach the top within a two hour period. To prove that the students made the qualifier in two hours, they have to take a picture with a timestamp at the bottom at the top of Lazy Mountain.

The cadet’s schedule at CLC is typically a wake-up call at 0700-0730, morning chow, hygiene, physical training, and a bus trip to the day’s activity. Once back at camp, the cadets have evening chow, dinner, and a little free time to have fun and hang out with friends, evening hygiene, then lights out.

On the final day of the trip, the cadets have the option to go zip lining with Alaska Zipline Adventures in Seward. The zip lining costs an additional $50 on top of the initial $150 necessary for the CLC.
