This year’s encampment will feature both basic encampment training squadrons for first time attendees and an Advance training Squadron (ATS).
The Basic Encampment is intended to teach the individuals from the participating wings common followership and leadership skills with standardized training and barracks life in a high stress environment. Graduation from a basic encampment is mandatory for all cadets wishing to move on to phase III and earn their Billy Mitchell award. In addition to the four core aspects of the cadet program: Leadership, Aerospace education, physical fitness, and character development, an opportunity to tour a Coast Guard Air Station, a possible Air Museum tour, team confidence course, rotary wing Orientation rides are being scheduled. Many of the high adventure activities will be weather and installation dependent, and are not guaranteed.
The purpose of the ATS is to bridge the collective training gap for the phase II and III Cadets that have not had the opportunity for advanced NCO and leader training. The ATS will function as an NCO Academy while incorporating the structure and opportunities of an encampment. Graduates of the ATS will be able to take the additional training back to their home squadrons and will also assist them in preparing for future leadership opportunities in CAP and life. Past encampment participation will be verified for cadets wishing to join as advanced cadets. Attending this ATS is an excellent opportunity to return to and relive the lifestyle of encampment but get more relevant phase II and III training. (There is no minimum or maximum grade level to attend ATS – just prior encampment graduation)
The Executive cadet staff has been hired, and they are working on a packing list as well as a Cadet Commander welcome letter. Anyone that applies prior to the packing list being published will be sent the initial packing list once completed. There is always the possibility that once published their will be an update prior to encampment start. Check your email that you apply with for updates up until the day of departure.
For senior members interested this year as Training Officers (TO), most positions are filled but half of the TOs and ATOs. Please send an email to email@example.com – and a short letter of intent (don’t make it too complicated) and/or Resume. Once assigned a position you will submit a CAPF 17,160 and 161.
