All it takes to join the club is a visit to the school age or youth center or contact the School Liaison Officer.

The Student2Student program connects current middle school and high school students with transitioning students.

Step Team

Fort Detrick Step Team is a creatively choreographed program that promotes the principles of teamwork, discipline, and enhances physical coordination. Stepping is a percussive, highly-energetic art form first developed through song and dance rituals. In stepping, the body becomes an instrument, using footsteps, claps and spoken word to produce complex polyrhythms.
