Hancock Field Air National Guard Base, Syracuse, NY -- The AFR/ANG has received funding for three Air Force Reserve/Air National Guard Teen Leadership Summits this year! The application deadline is 16 Apr 2010. If you are interested, please contact me for more information.
The AFR/ANG Teen Leadership Summits are open to all 14-18 year old dependent teens of current Air Force Reserve or Air National Guard members.
Applicants will be required to complete the 2010 AFR/ANG Teen Leadership Summit application for the session they wish to attend to include essay questions, Code of Conduct and transportation form.
Classic Summit, 13-18 June 2010 - Wahsega 4-H Center, Dahlonega, GA
Attendees will be flown into Atlanta-Hartsfield International Airport. This Summit will focus on developing an awareness of programs and services available to AF Reserve and Air National Guard dependents. Activities include high/low ropes course, rock climbing, white water rafting, hiking, environmental education and leadership classes.
Survival Summit, 20-25 July 2010 - Colorado Youth Programs, Boulder, CO
Teens must have attended a previous AFR/ANG Teen Leadership Summit to apply for this camp- attendance is limited to 36 teens. Attendees will fly into the Denver International Airport. This Summit begins at base camp where teens will have a day to prepare for the expert-led three day, two night survival experience.
Adventure Summit, 10-15 August 2010 - Cheley Camps, Estes Park, CO
Attendees will be flown into Denver International Airport. In this beautiful and majestic setting, teens will have the opportunity to choose from daily activities such as Rocky Mountain hiking, horseback riding (western), colts (where campers learn what is involved in training horses) backpacking, mountain biking, technical climbing, archery and low ropes challenge course.
NOTE: Teens may only apply for one summit. Airfare, transportation while at the Summit, camp fees, lodging and meals are covered by Air Force. Parents will be responsible for getting their teen to/from the airport, baggage fees, spending money for snacks, souvenirs and meals during airline travel.
Last year one of our teens was selected and attended the Classic Summit at Wahsega 4-H Center in Dahlonega, GA. He had a wonderful experience and now has the opportunity to attend the Survival Summit in Boulder, CO. This is a great experience and I hope you will urge your teens to apply!
