Welcome to the 2021 Ohio Wing Encampment website!
12 Jan 2021: Encampment website redesigned!
2 Jan 2021:
- Planning for the 2021 Encampment is ramping up.
- Call for Cadet Command Cadre applications - see details on this page and the above banner.
The OHWG Encampment and Cadet Programs staff ask for your grace during this planning period. The safety of our members is our top priority and the COVID-19 pandemic is still dictating if/when this activity is completed and in what form. Planning an event like this week long leadership activity does take many months of careful planning during a 'normal time', but the pandemic has increased the scope and complexity. Thank you in advance.
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 10-17 July 2021 at Wright-Patterson AFB and Wright State University.
Students will report as directed the Saturday morning of Encampment (10 July 2021) at a time to be determined, typically 10 AM.
Cadet and Senior Cadre report the Friday afternoon before Encampment (9 July 2021)- time to be determined.
The mission of the Ohio Wing Encampment is to engage cadets and develop their leadership skills in an age appropriate yet intense military environment. Cadets will learn about careers in aerospace and military service, perform physical fitness training to establish camaraderie and further develop their habit of regular exercise, and focus on character development in a leadership setting. Cadets will participate in activities including team building exercises, orientation flights, leadership courses, and emergency services training (the scope of these activities are dependent on available resources).
Applicants must be current Civil Air Patrol cadet members who have completed their first promotion (the Curry Achievement) and have their squadron commander's permission to attend. All requested paperwork and tuition must be on time.
