This site lists Civil Air Patrol's upcoming Cadet Special Activities (CSAs). It includes national activities and those wing and region activities approved to receive the CSA ribbon. These activities are designed to explore civilian and military aerospace careers, provide flight training, develop leadership, and enhance emergency services skills. Typically, advertisements for activities we plan to offer in Winter are posted here by mid-October, and spring/summer activities are posted by mid-December. A list of past activities is under the "Helpful Links" section of this web page under the title "eServices Event/Activity Preference Numbers."

Please note activities that appear as "not scheduled" on, don’t have confirmed dates, but we are working to host the activity unless noted that the activity has cancelled. Encampment requirement is removed for some activities.  Look at the activity ad page to see if it is required.  EServices Registration & Payment System is OPEN for Spring/Summer activity applications. Applications submitted in eServices through 14 Oct for Christmas Break, 20 Nov for winter, and 15 Jan for spring/summer are considered "On-Time" and are given priority placement into "primary" status. Use this "Apply Online" link to access the application site on eServices.

Financial Support: Go to the eServices CadetInvest Module and apply for Cadet Lift and Take-Off Program Cadet (TOP), to be considered for needs-based financial assistance or NCSA scholarships.  Also apply for flight scholarships. These programs are designed to offset costs associated with attending some NCSAs, as well as flight academies. They include payment of your activity fees and transportation to and from the activity.  Go to the CadetInvest pages for more details. Deadline to apply for scholarships and financial assistance is 31 December. Being offered financial assistance is not a guarantee of acceptance into an activity. You must compete for and receive a slot at an activity.

Activity Goal: 

The goal of Medical Orientation and Training School is to provide students the opportunity to learn basic life saving techniques for ill or injured patients while exploring the many careers available in the healthcare industry.  The knowledge obtained allows graduates to provide assistance in their community to a variety of emergencies until higher trained responders can arrive.  Additionally, the training provides opportunities for the students to experience command and support functions as identified in the National Incident Management System and learn to work in a team environment to accomplish goals specific to the care, treatment and extrication of injured patients.
