Encampments are week-long activities that serve to build a foundation for the cadets from which to build their Civil Air Patrol (CAP) experience.  These week-long events provide in-depth orientation to Civil Air Patrol and the United States Air Force.  First time cadets can expect to be challenged both mentally and physically during a busy and exciting week of hands on leadership development training, aerospace events and local site activities.  Cadets returning as staff will be challenged even further through the leadership roles they will fill and staff duties they will perform.  All cadets will have the opportunity to be introduced to the military, learn to overcome challenges, develop time-management skills, enhance their interpersonal skills and have a great time.
