Welcome to the website 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. 

Encampment is a week long program designed for Civil Air Patrol cadets in Phase I and II of the cadet program. Encampment completion is a requirement for the Mitchell Award (which signifies successful completion of Phase II of the Cadet Program) and consideration for participation on Regional Cadet Leadership School (RCLS) and National Cadet Special Activities (NCSAs).

The Ohio Wing Encampment will be held 22 June - 29 June 2019 at Wright-Patterson AFB and Wright State University.

The mission of the Ohio Wing Encampment is to engage cadets and develop their leadership skills in a high intensity military environment. Cadets are able to learn more about careers in aerospace and military service, participate in physical fitness training intended to encourage camaraderie and developing a habit of regular exercise, and focus on character development in a leadership setting. Cadets will also be given opportunities to participate in activities including team building exercises, orientation flights, leadership courses, and emergency services training (activities may vary year to year and are dependent on availability). 

Interested applicants must be Civil Air Patrol members who have completed their first promotion (the Curry Achievement) and have their squadron commander's permission to attend.
