The academy is designed to challenge the participants mentally and physically while learning key aspects in leadership.

The participants that attend the academy are introduced to a highly structured in which they will live in. Classroom activities, outdoor leadership reaction courses, compass navigation sites, and rappel towers are a few of the activities the youth will engage in.

The Academy will be hosted at the Fort Custer Military Training Base in Augusta, Michigan. There will be two Academies again this summer. The young men will attend June 20th to June 25th. The young women will attend August 15th to August 20th. Approximately 35 young men and 35 young women will be chosen from an application and interview process to attend the Academy.
