Encampment

Encampment challenges you. It pushes you so you’ll grow. Are you self-disciplined? Can you lead? Can you truly work as a team? These are some of the questions the cadre will help you  answer for yourself as you participate in awesome, hands-on activities and tours. Specifically, our goal is to inspire you to

•          develop leadership skills,

•          learn about aviation, space, and technology,

•          commit to a habit of regular exercise, and

•          live the Core Values.

As cadets of the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary, your training will emphasize not only leadership and character, but fitness and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) as you explore career opportunities in those areas and so much more.
