Hi, i was wondering if there are summer camps/opportunities that are strictly for USMA kiddos— I.e. Camp Buckner/CFT allows ROTC cadets based on merit, correct? What about air assault, etc.? If so, how competitive is it to get selected (from ROTC)?

My ROTC cadet will be attending air assault this summer with West Point cadets. His ROTC unit only gets a few spots per class.

Mine is there now. He also got one of a few ROTC spots at different Air Assault schools this summer. Another cadet went to airborne. Yes it is possible but not everyone who wants to go gets the opportunity. I don’t know how it works for cadets in USMA - if everyone goes or just some.

After his MS1 year my DS studied Arabic at the Qasid Insitute in Jordan. After his MS2 year he went to Air Assault School at Fr. Benning. Those placements were competitive. After his MS3 year he did Advanced Camp at Ft. Knox. He squeezed civilian internships during the 2nd and 3rd summers.
