Encampment 2

Encampment Begins 27 December 2015!

Encampment is a basic introduction to the CAP way of life and is an opportunity to experience leadership from both a follower’s and leader’s point of view. Encampment is a unique training opportunity because of the week-long “total immersion” concept that introduces cadets to a military environment at an active military installation. Although encampment is not a military boot camp, it is very intense training! It is an excellent way to meet new cadets from throughout the Wing, and nation, and aids in establishing an “esprit de corps” among the “next generation” of cadet leaders.
