For my travel experience I went to Delafield, Wisconsin. I went because I am in jrotc and my instructors told be it would be a great experience. This was my second time going on a trip for Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps. “JROTC” Even though it was my second time attending the the camp. It was at a new place and it was a totally different experience. This year i went as a black hat which means its your second year going to camp. I had a lot of fun that summer and we stayed for two weeks. I met a lot of cool people that year and they became life long friends. You may think it was easy but when you go to summer camp for JROTC it test all your fears. You have to do something called the repell tower. It was so scary. I had to climb up the stairs all the way to the top of the tower. Then we repelled down the tower. I was so scared but was glad i did it. If i would have never conquered my fear of heights i would go through my life not knowing what it feels like to accomplish something. When you are a black hat you help the senior army instructors “SAI” with all the activities or anything they ask for. I helped with the sports and logistics which is the S-4. The S-4 is a position in the army. So my other friends and I help supply the food, transportation, and linen. We also did patrols at night which we called night watchs. We did physical training “PT” in the morning. We had to be up at 5:30am and be outside at 6:00am. Someone had to know where you were at all times. When ever you went some where you had to be with someone at all times. Well since I was in charge of sports I really didn’t have to help out the S-4 but I wanted to do as much as i could there. I also helped out other black hats with there job duties. We had to refill the water canteens with water and ice at each station or something may have happen to one of the cadets because of dehydration. First one of the instructors drove us to the building where the cafeteria was so we could fill the canteens up with ice and water. We had to carry them back and forth. They were heavy but i didn’t want the cadets going without any water. After we took the canteens back to the truck we stop at stations and put the fresh ones out. We took all the ones that barely had any water left. Alot of the cadets told us we came just in time because they were running out of water.  This experience really change my life because I felt as though I made a difference. What an experience!
