What is Encampment?

The purpose of encampment is for cadets to develop leadership skills, investigate the aerospace sciences and related careers, commit to a habit of regular exercise, and solidify their moral character. What encampment is not is a boot camp. While we utilize the same regimented, military-like training model that squadrons successfully implement on a weekly basis, encampments do operate at a higher level of intensity than most cadet activities. While age-appropriate, that increased intensity does create a bit of stress many cadets aren't used to but typically find that with determination and teamwork the encampment experience is a positive and fun activity that provides life-long memories.


Requirements for encampment

In order to attend encampment, cadets must have completed their first achievement, the Curry Award, and receive permission from their parent/guardian as well as their squadron commander. Cadets from all wings are invited to attend.
