Welcome to the webpage of the Ohio Wing Encampment. Throughout the year, Civil Air Patrol cadets and senior members come together to plan what we hope to be one of the best weeks of a cadet’s life.
The following information should provide some answers to questions you may have concerning our encampment.
If you have additional questions, comments or concerns, visit the Encampment Staff section to contact us.
Who: Civil Air Patrol cadets, especially those who have not attended another encampment.
What: The Civil Air Patrol encampment is a truly unique opportunity for young adults between the ages of 12-21 to expand their leadership skills and gain an early understanding of the military lifestyle. Over the course of a week, new cadets are introduced to a variety of mental and physical challenges designed to build and enforce the Civil Air Patrol Core Values: Integrity, Volunteer Service, Excellence, and Respect.
When: Saturday 16 June – 24 June 2017. Staff arrives 16 June; cadets arrive 17 June.
Where: Wright-Patterson AFB / Wright State University
Why: Successful completion of an encampment is required for the Billy Mitchell Award and opens up many new and exciting opportunities for CAP cadets, including numerous college and flight scholarships, National Cadet Special Activities, and the ability to return to encampment as cadet staff.
