CVMA is a wilderness style military survival camp that brings young men back to the basics and teaches them the importance of teamwork. Thus, it is operated in a wilderness setting with minimal conveniences, which serves to maximize opportunities to search one’s heart and learn purpose for life. Campers are challenged to build their own shelters, prepare their own food, and participate in physical and mental competitions.

CVMA’s goal is to help youth recognize their poor decision-making skills, learn how to eradicate those detrimental habits, and begin to build a positive foundation on which to base positive decision-making skills. It does so by helping young men recognize the error and danger of their negative decisions and behaviors, and identifying how those actions hurt themselves, their families, and the community in which they live.  

OBJECTIVES

The objectives of CVMA are as follows:

The objectives for each youth are as follows:

 

To improve his decision-making skills;

To improve peer relationships by identifying negative peer characteristics and listing positive character traits that would be found in a positively-influencing peer.

CAMPERS (YOUTH)

CVMA accepts boys ages 7-17 who currently exhibit behavioral problems at school or at home. These behavioral problems may also include social or emotional issues. Because of its short duration, boys are not accepted who have current problems with the law; past unlawful activities will not prohibit a boy’s entry into the program, but will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the administration. The following is a list of common characteristics of the type of boy who would benefit from this program:

bullet

Strong-willed and disrespectful;

bullet

Not achieving academically to his full potential;

bullet

Uncooperative with parents and/or teachers;

bullet

Needs self-motivation and discipline;

bullet

Lacks self-respect and social skills;

bullet

Needs a closer relationship with Parents.

Parents who desire for their son to attend CVMA must complete the application process, and will be notified of their son’s acceptance or rejection.

STAFFING

CVMA employs adults who desire to be a part of this life-changing ministry; its’ staff are known as Instructors. Older teens who desire to be youth leaders are known as Cadet Instructors, and are utilized in assisting Instructors in teaching classes and monitoring the camp and campers. These Instructors and Cadet Instructors are chosen for their character values of integrity, respect, and honor, and for their desire to help boys learn to make right decisions.

 

Instructors

Instructors are responsible for supervising each daily activity and ensuring the safety of each Cadet Instructor and camper throughout the duration of the camp. They must also give and supervise consequences for negative behaviors, keeping in mind that the purpose of CVMA is to change youth’s lives, not just to provide a fun recreational time.

 

Cadet Instructors

Cadet  Instructors are young men, who are currently at Southeastern Military Academy, or who have successfully graduated from the school, who desire to be in a position of youth leadership assisting Instructors in the daily operations of the camp. They do not have a supervisory role by themselves, but may teach specific classes, assist Instructors in teaching classes, and help campers in daily activities. They are to be positive role models at all times.

Location  

CVMA is located in South Florida and utilizes many Wildlife Management Areas and National Forests for the accomplishment of the program goals. It has as it’s Home Base Southeastern  Military Academy’s  Forward Operating Base in Central  Florida.

 

DESIRED RESULTS OF PROGRAM

Southeastern Military Academy celebrates a success rate of having over 98% of our boys successfully graduating from school and going into the military or on to college. Our short-term program utilizes the same tough love and consequential behavior modification approach. CVC enables boys with strong--willed personalities the opportunity to change self-destructive behaviors before they need to be sent to a long-term residential treatment facility.

HEALTH & SAFETY

At CVMA, the overriding primary concern is the health and safety of each youth. Therefore, each youth is checked each day for any bites, stings, rashes, cuts, or other safety concerns for any occurrence that may require medical attention. Instructors are trained in CPR and First Aid.

COMMUNICATION WITH PARENTS

Even though the boys are in the wilderness in primitive surroundings, they are encouraged to write letters to their parents, and may receive mail as well. Phone calls are not available during the camp due to primitive surroundings and the short duration of the camp.
