Leadership Academy

Leadership Academy is for the best of the best. Top performing cadets who will serve in leadership positions within the unit will spend a week during the summer learning additional leadership skills to enhance their abilities and better lead our unit to future success. Typically only 3 to 4 cadets per year will be afforded the opportunity to attend LA.

Sail Academy

Sail Academy is a weeklong summer activity within NJROTC that is designed to teach, train, and qualify cadets to operate a sailing vessel. The course is taught by Coast Guard certified instructors and graduating cadets earn certification to rent and sail vessels. This is a fun and interactive camp that involved classroom and on-the-water hands-on training.


Cadets participate annually in a camp in Texas (Texas Junior Orienteering Camp) designed to enhance runner skills and prepare them to compete at the highest level and win Championships. TJOC has trained the last three Female Varsity National Orienteering Champions as well as the last two Navy National Team Champions, all of which reside right here at Hillgrove.

Basic Leadership Training (BLT)

Basic Leadership Training involved leadership training and skill, working physically and mentally to become the best version of you. It's pushing yourself to do things that you have never done before, such as water survival, rappelling, confidence courses, first aid, physical activities, drill, and other team related activities.
