The University of North Georgia's (UNG) Corps of Cadets will host National Leadership Challenge (NLC) Weekend on November 3-5, 2023 for JROTC cadets and other high school students who are considering a military program in college.
Students will rappel down a sheer rock cliff at the Army's Mountain Ranger Camp in Dahlonega, construct a rope bridge across a mountain stream, negotiate obstacle and leadership reaction course elements, observe demonstrations by UNG cadet organizations, and meet some of UNG's cadets. Students will be assigned to small teams, and current UNG cadets mentor and guide them through the weekend's events.
Participants sleep in rustic, 16-person cabins on bunk beds at Camp Wahsega, a 4-H Camp owned by the University System of Georgia, approximately one mile from the Mountain Ranger Camp, and ten miles from campus. Men and women will occupy separate cabins.
NLC Weekend is offered twice per year (fall and spring), and space is limited to 200 students.
