NJROTC cadets also participate in a number of outside activities throughout the school year and during the summer months. These opportunities are designed to stimulate learning by hands-on experience and to reinforce classroom instruction. Some of these activities include: School and local activities such as drill teams, rifle teams, orienteering, unit athletics, parades, field days, and nonpolitical community activities. Military/leadership training, orientation visits to various naval and military bases, and cruises aboard U.S. naval vessels may be conducted during the summer months.
