Camp Shannon, Myakka, FL, --
The Sarasota Composite Squadron Cadets recently went to Camp Shannon for a team building bivouac. Cadets had the chance to learn about leadership, work as a team and have fun while making friends. C/Amn Villalobos said “I attended this event because I wanted to try something new and different that I’ve never experienced”. On Saturday, Cadets started their day with a scavenger hunt with Cadets working as a team to look for the hidden objects. Next, the Cadets worked on a Team Leadership Problem or TLP. The objective was to work as a group so each person would have a piece of toilet paper without breaking the continuous piece. The second task was to form a star without breaking the toilet paper. Cadet Airman 1st Class Ibarra said “The most difficult part was to pass the toilet paper without breaking it”. This activity allowed Cadets to display teamwork and develop leadership skills. Next, the Cadets went on a hike followed by physical training also known as PT activities. Cadets had fun playing whiffle ball, kickball, and capture the flag. The Cadets then worked on the second team leadership problem which required the Cadets to communicate with each other to get one cadet to the other side of a log. Having free time at the end of the day, the Cadets spent time with each other playing cards and enjoying a camp fire. In conclusion, all the cadets had fun while learning leadership skills, being part of a team and learning that communication is important. Everyone had a great time and made amazing memories and friends. The Cadets would especially like to thank Capt. Ann Marie Kozloski and 1st Lt. Jack Duich for all their efforts in making this bivouac a fun and memorable experience.
