A unique aspect of our L.E.A.D. Academy is leadership training through adventure. Students are challenged to learn new skills while conquering their fears. The program includes the following opportunities:

  • Community Service
  • Rappelling
  • Map Reading and Hiking
  • Water Survival Techniques
  • Bivouac and Shelter making
  • Kayaking and Canoeing
  • First Aid
  • Team Sports
  • Team building activities

In addition to the general program, students can opt to take paid extension activities (*) which include:

Air Rifle Training - RMA Summer Program* Marksmanship ($250)
Precision air rifle training using the Academy's state of the art indooor rifle range. Participants can either hone their shooting skills or learn shooting basics.

* Introduction to SCUBA (TBC) ($1000)
Participants receive an Open Water SCUBA Certification taught by the McEver Dive Shop in Riverside's expansive natatorium. Students are instructed in the basics of dive safety, equipment, emergency response, and other critical skills. The course culminates in a validation dive. Boy Scouts are eligible to receive the SCUBA merit badge.

* SAT Prep ($275)
This course includes a book, multiple practice tests, and specialized tutoring. It's a great value as similar programs offered elsewhere range in cost from $300-$3000.

* Weight Lifting ($200)
This course includes supplements and individualized training programs taught by an experienced weight training professional. Participants learn the mechanics of safe lifting and how to develop specialized training plans to achieve desired results.
