Encampment is one of the most worthwhile activities available to cadets. You’ll be challenged by a carefully designed, age-appropriate, military-style training environment. This immersion into the military style training will challenge cadets to develop self-discipline and teamwork while learning leadership skills, military bearing and broadening their understanding of aerospace and the Cadet Program. Surveys show that the opportunity to thrive in a strict, Air Force-like setting is among the top reasons young people become cadets. Successful completion of an encampment is required for the Billy Mitchell Award and opens up many new and exciting opportunities for CAP cadets, such as National Cadet Special Activities, and the ability to return to encampment as cadet cadre.
