Pass in Review How-to

You've reached the complete online guide on how to do pass in reviews.

The purpose of this page is to put an end to the consistently inconsistent pass-in-reviews conducted at encampment. The common experience is the staff had to 'relearn' the drill manual each year, and made different interpretations and customizations. This results in very different pass in reviews! Hopefully, this online guide will make teaching and doing the pass in review so easy, that your encampment staff will merely have to read a script- without the senior cadet staff and/or senior staff having to re-invent it each year.
