The ALERT Cadet Challenge (ACC) is an elective 3-day training course for young men ages 8-17, held concurrently with Family Conferences around the country. You don’t have to be an ALERT Cadet member to participate; the ACC is for everyone!

ACC participants learn and practice new life skills, tackle outdoor challenges, and spend time in God’s Word, working together in squads and platoons alongside ALERT Cadet officers and ALERT men.

Leadership Training Challenge

As part of the ACC, the new Leadership Training Challenge (LTC) uniquely motivates young men ages 13-17 to develop character and skills as future leaders and men of God. LTC is more difficult physically and mentally, stretching young men as they grow toward Biblical manhood. Participants meet separately during morning and afternoon sessions, then rejoin the younger Cadets during formation and lunch.
