Over 30 cadets in the Sussex Tech JROTC Raven Battalion attended Challenge Camp from May 11-13. Spending the weekend at Camp Barnes, cadets participated in challenges on the high rope course, kayaking, swimming, and team building exercises. Goals of the camp are to build the cadet’s confidence, problem-solving skills, trust in their fellow cadets, physical strength, and inner strength.
