DECEMBER 2017 FIELD TRIP: Naval Station Norfolk, Amphibious Base Little Creek and Naval Air Station Oceana
We are planning on taking a maximum of 30 cadets on an orientation visit to the Norfolk, Virginia area to visit several facilities from 13-16 December 2017. These facilities are Naval Station Norfolk, Amphibious Base Little Creek and Naval Air Station Oceana. Only those cadets in good standing with the unit may attend; at a minimum this requires that they have no suspensions, failing none of their classes, a "C" average in MCJROTC and that their teachers sign off for each of their classes to participate on this trip.
The group will depart Ardrey Kell High School by charter bus at approximately 2:00 pm on Wednesday 13 December 2017 and return on Saturday 16 December 2017.
During the trip the cadets will participate in physical training activities, hands on training of a LCAC simulator, receiving briefs from Marine and Navy personnel on amphibious capabilities, static displays of this equipment, a Navy submarine tour with briefs of the ships capabilities during the tour, hands on training of a Navy damage control and ship handling simulator, briefs and tours of a Navy F-18 and a Marine V-22 squadron along with simulator time for the cadets for these aircraft along with static displays of the actual aircraft. The cadets will stay on Naval Station Norfolk during this trip at the Sea Cadet Barracks with males and females separated within designated areas of this barracks while having adult male and female chaperones supervising the cadet behavior.
