ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga . (AFNS) — The Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard officials announced the 2013 Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard Teen Leadership Summit locations.

This year’s summits will be held in Dahlonega, Ga., and Estes Park, Colo.

The teen summits combine high-adventure activities with leadership classes to allow teens to tap into their leadership potential and discover hidden strengths while developing a sense of belonging as part of the Air Force community.

Teens with a parent in the AFR or ANG can sign up to attend one of the free summits. April 15 is the application deadline. Participants must be 14 to 18 years old.

Applicants must answer essay questions and complete code of conduct and transportation forms to attend one of the summits.

The first summit is the Classic Teen Leadership Summit in Dahlonega, June 16-21.

During this week-long adventure, teens will participate in group activities such as high ropes, zip-line canopy tour, white-water rafting, hiking, fishing, archery and survival classes. Attendees will be introduced to community partners, such as 4-H Club, American Legion and the Y, that provide support to military families. The teens will also attend leadership classes throughout the week.

The second summit is the Adventure Teen Leadership Summit in Estes Park, Aug. 13-18.

During this summit, teens will take part in daily adventure activities including hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, horse colt training, arts and crafts, woodworking, technical rock climbing and archery. Leadership classes taught throughout the week include the “Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens.” Each evening, teens will gather for programs including camp fires and songs, musical performances and environmental education classes.

Both summits include military traditions and community service projects.
