Cadet Summer Training Advanced Camp is held annually at Fort Knox, Kentucky.  The U.S. Army's largest training exercise, Advanced Camp is the U.S. Army Cadet Command's capstone training event.

The purpose of the course is to train U.S. Army ROTC Cadets to Army Standards, to develop their leadership skills, and to evaluate their officer potential. Most Army Cadets attend Advanced Camp between their junior and senior undergraduate years after having contracted to join the Army. Successful completion of Advanced Camp is a prerequisite to becoming an Army officer through ROTC.
