Waterfield Group chairman J. Randall “Randy” Waterfield is an active member of a number of professional groups and organizations. J. Randall Waterfield supports Culver Military Academy by serving on the Culver Summer School board.

Culver Military Academy offers summer schools and camps for over 1,350 children aged 7 to 17 each year. For the summer of 2016, they will offer a Culver Woodcraft Camp for both boys and girls ages 9 to 14. The camp, which lasts six weeks, offers over 80 elective courses as well as regular academic classes for English, Writing Composition, Reading, and Math, in the form of five 45-minute class periods a day Mondays through Fridays. Students may also attend one of five religious services each week.

Students are housed in A-frame cabins with ceiling fans and screened windows. One cabin houses up to 12 students and one counselor. The camp consists of approximately 700 campers, who are divided into four “Battalions” by age and gender. Three distinctive awards are given to those campers who achieve enough points in all phases of camp, including inspections, drill, and athletic participation, and show good citizenship and personal cleanliness. Campers begin with a Bronze Culver “C” and can be awarded with a Silver or Gold “C.”
