Survival


Do you have what it takes?

Survival training in the CACC is foundational to leadership development.  It teaches self-reliance, critical thinking, self-confidence, resilience, character development, grit, smart risk-taking, value of preparation, and techniques to deal with stress and failure. It also increases odds of survival in adverse situations, develops an appreciation and respect for the outdoors, and creates strong bonds between the shared participants.
