If your kids have ever thought about joining the military, there's a camp in Millersburg that can give them a taste of what it's like.

It's called the U.S. Army Cadet Corps.

But this camp isn't all roasting marshmallows and telling ghost stories over bonfires.

It's a taste of military life for children between the ages of 12 and 18.

They're assigned a unit and put through rigorous training exercises each day...just like any armed forces recruit.

But this isn't a military school like you'd probably imagine...these kids choose to be here.
 
And they walk away with more than some extra muscle tone...they gain confidence and discipline.

For more information on the U.S. Army Cadet Corps, you can go to goarmycadets.com.
