The 6th Annual State Capital Explorer Challenge will be held on April 27th through April 29th, 2018 at the California Highway Patrol Academy located in West Sacramento. The competition is designed to be very demanding on the physical and mental capabilities of each Explorer. Events will be designed to test the strengths and limitations of a person's intelligence, personality, demeanor and physical abilities, as well as dedication and conviction to the Explorer Program.Explorers will be given the opportunity to test their skills in the real life situations including, but not limited to, Traffic Stops and Building Searches, just to name a few. These events will be held both in daylight and night time scenarios. The competition will test the Explorers physical abilities and teamwork through obstacle courses and a tug of war. Mental abilities will also be tested through a variety of events including a Law Enforcement Entry Level Written Exam. Trophies will be awarded for 1st through 5th place in each event with 1st through 3rd place overall scores. We look forward to see you and your Explorer Post at the Annual State Capital Explorer Challenge!
