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.
Help with tuition and uniform expenses is available. Please see the Cadet Encampment Assistance Program page.
All training materials are available online.
Encampments will be listed here as they are announced. All activities may be subject to change. Please note that the hosting wing must be in Phase III of COVID-19 remobilization 50 days prior to the start of the activity. All attendees must also be from areas in Phase III of COVID-19 remobilization.
Directors of cadet programs, please register your encampment with us for inclusion on this page.
