The name of our camp is Forward Operating Base Roland, or FOB Roland, named after Lexington, KY native Matt Roland. Matt was an Air Force Special Operations officer that was killed in combat in Afghanistan in 2015. He earned the Silver Star for his courage under fire. His father is a retired Air Force Colonel and is part of our staff. We are proud to serve our community and pass on Matt's legacy to our future leaders and members of the guardian class.

There is a hard structure on site that we can move into should severe weather move into the area.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Intrepid Leadership Group are military veterans and special operators that worked closely while in Joint Special Operations Command. All of us have sons and daughters that we've raised to stand up for what they believe in and serve others. Our camp is designed to take capable and motivated teens and teach them to use their skills to help others and contribute to society.

We've learned our best leadership training was during stressful situations, so we've created manageable stress by assigning our teens "missions" they have to plan and execute, sometimes in paintball gear while receiving "fire". This manageable stress is a fun and safe way of increasing their heart rate while teaching them to make decisions and lead their teammates. We also use Clifton's StrengthFinders personality assessment tool to help our teens understand and exploit their natural strengths.

We have two certified strength coaches on site the entire time and we use this tool as part of our daily feedback sessions. This is our third year and our camps are fantastic!

Please go to our website and check out pictures and video as well as the "camp cadre" to learn a little about our background. While it can get intense at times, we always keep it safe and ensure humor and fun is always part of the curriculum.
