Encampment

May 2022- Join our webinars for encampment leaders, cadet cadre and training officers.   Click here to learn more

 

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.


Financial Assistance

Help with tuition and uniform expenses is available. Please see the Cadet Encampment Assistance Program page.  CEAP opens on 1 March for Summer Encampments and 1 November for Winter Encampments. CEAP closes about 30 days prior to the start of the encampment.
