Encampment Open Mic (Form and Process Assistance)
Meeting link:

Encampment Open Mic night will be held every Sunday and Wednesday night at 8PM starting April 27. The final meeting will be on May 29.

Encampment is a 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 mission of the Ohio Wing Encampment is to engage cadets and develop their leadership skills in an age appropriate military leadership style 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.
