The theme is the leadership training received by midshipmen in order to become Navy and Marine Corps officers. The program begins with a showing of the film, THE CALL TO SERVE, in the Visitor Center theater, followed by a brief presentation by a retired military officer. Participants are taken on a guided walking tour of the Naval Academy, which includes information on the history and architecture of the Academy with emphasis on the mission, curriculum, athletics program and how midshipmen learn to work as a team. Marching Orders, a leadership team building exercise will conclude the formal presentation.

The United States Naval Academy is a four-year undergraduate program that offers a Bachelor of Science degree in 23 majors. The faculty numbers about 600, half military and half civilian. There are approximately 4,400 midshipmen. The term “midshipman” comes from the British Royal Navy. It was used to designate a youth stationed amidships to relay orders fore and aft. Today “midshipman” is an official rank. Every student is a Midshipman, whether male or female. A Midshipman graduates with the rank of Ensign in the U.S. Navy or 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps. The military obligation upon graduation is five years. This program introduces corporate team building groups to the education and leadership training required at the Naval Academy to become Navy and Marine Corps officers.
