TCA Salemburg Class 54 Camp Butner
Tarheel ChalleNGe Academy Salemburg candidates traveled to Camp Butner for a part of their acclimation phase training. The Acclimation phase took place during the first two weeks of the program and tends to be the toughest part of the program because of the new daily regimen filled with military-themed structure, discipline, demanding activities and 5:30 am wake-ups.
While at Camp Butner, candidates participated in numerous exercises to test their physical fitness, boost their self-confidence, and demonstrate the benefits of teamwork. Candidates were introduced to Military tactics such as Physical Fitness and Land Navigation which included map and compass reading skills and a five-mile road march.
One highlight of Camp Butner is participating in the Obstacle Course. The Obstacle course serves as a type of final exam for many of the team building activities because candidates must work together to successfully maneuver the obstacles.
