Encampment is the most significant, worthwhile training experience in a CAP cadet's career. It is a week long basic training-like program and is required for the General Billy Mitchell Award. Encampment is designed to develop a greater understanding of CAP and Air Force missions and capabilities, personal and team leadership, and teamwork. Delaware, Maryland and National Capital Wings come together and host the annual Tri-Wing Encampment each year.
For detailed information regarding the encampment visit the web-page at https://www.triwingcap.org/
Thanks to Air Force support, CAP has special funding available to cover encampment fees and uniforms with an emphasis on serving economically disadvantaged cadets. An inability to afford encampment will not hold back cadets who want to participate in encampment. Visit https://www.capmembers.com/cadet_programs/activities/ceap/ and apply via eServices ASAP!
