    I have some confusion about the various summer training requirements for AROTC.

    I understand that Advanced Camp between the junior and senior years is required. But is "Basic" camp required as well if the student has been in ROTC for their freshman and sophomore years? In some places, the Basic course is described as being only applicable the summer before folks may enter ROTC as a Junior...?????

    Can anyone outline the summer training requirements and options for each summer of ROTC

    Thanks!

    From my understanding, basic camp is only required if you had no prior military service experience or you weren't in ROTC your freshman/sophomore semesters. You can elect to attend it and might be encouraged by cadre, but I don't think it is a requirement.

    Don't go to basic camp if you do ROTC all four years
