Leadership Academy 2019 Leadership Academy was a week long in Camp Blanding, near Starke, FL. We took numerous explorers that showed leadership potential throughout the year. During this week, explorers were brought to their breaking points then built back up, much like a boot camp style approach. Explorers participated in many activities such as the military grade obstacle course, leadership reaction course, building clearing, various scenarios and physical fitness. Explorers completed these tasks for a total of seven days, each on very limited sleep. Explorers had the chance to stay in the military barracks and eat the chow hall provided. By the end of this week, we brought back home completely changed explorers with a new outlook on leadership. Great job to all the explorers who participated and completed this rigorous week.
