Encampment Cadre & Staff Webinars

Technology is making it easier for CAP as a national organization to standardize training and lift one another up in terms of program quality. Each spring the National Encampment Best Practices Team hosts a webinar series for encampment cadre and staff so that those individuals have an opportunity to hear practical tips on how to perform their jobs well. We’ll have some superb people from across the nation leading the webinars in a panel discussion, with opportunity for audience participation as well. 

Everyone is welcome. No prior approval from the chain of command is needed for this opportunity, and cadets don’t even need to possess a cadre assignment to participate. In fact, if a cadet participates in a webinar before interviewing for a cadre slot, that experience should make him or her a more competitive candidate.  

2024 Webinars

Our 2024 Spring Webinar series will be held Thursday evenings in at 7:30 pm Central Time (6:30 pm Pacific, 9:30 pm Eastern). All sessions will be recorded and posted here for later viewing.  

Cadet Executive Cadre: Setting the Tone- Serving in the encampment Cadet Executive Cadre is a unique role in the Civil Air Patrol, unlike just about any other learning experience you've had. Come hear from cadets who've done it before and learn what they wish they'd known ahead of time. This session is focused on the needs of Cadet Executive Cadre, but all are welcome to attend. 

Cadet Cadre: Tips for Success- Stepping up to lead your fellow cadets at encampment can be intimidating.  Come and hear from cadets who've done it before and are happy to share their knowledge.  What should you do to prepare? What should you avoid?  Whether you know you'll be on the encampment cadre or you're thinking about applying, come get some tips for success.

Training Officers: Supporting Cadet Success- Being a Training Officer at encampment is more than being a chaperone, it's a mentoring role.  Come learn how to find the right balance in supporting the cadets, students and cadre alike.
