Registration opens for Carson-Newman Army ROTC Summer Basic Camp

Carson-Newman’s Kyle Nabe, a 2nd lieutenant who graduated in December with an MBA, takes part in ROTC training exercises. Carson-Newman’s ROTC is now accepting participants for its Summer Basic Camp.

Registration is now open for Carson-Newman University’s Army ROTC basic camp scheduled for this summer. Different than basic training, the summer camp allows participants to receive payment to attend, as well as six credit hours to Carson-Newman and an “A” for passing the course.

The camp is designed for college students, typically between their sophomore and junior years. The opportunity allows for participants to learn more about ROTC with no commitment, while also opening the door to a 2-year scholarship.

Participants will experience physical fitness training, basic marksmanship, land navigation, drill & ceremony, first aid, and other various types of training.

Two scheduled camps are offered. The first basic camp is June 28 – July 27, with the second basic camp taking place July 13 – Aug. 11.
