Goals of Encampments

Encampments are designed to provide CAP members the opportunity to:

(1) Apply knowledge gained in the cadet and senior programs to practical situations.
(2) Develop a greater understanding of CAP and Air Force missions and capabilities.
(3) Develop their leadership potential.
(4) Enhance their interpersonal skills.
(5) Develop time-management skills.
(6) Develop a spirit of teamwork.
(7) Inspire a sense of discipline.
(8) Learn how to overcome challenges and succeed.
(9) Enhance their local unit’s Cadet Program.
(10) Aid in retention and motivation.
(11) Receive an introduction to the military.

An encampment can be the most significant and worthwhile training experience of a CAP cadet’s membership. Training is what the encampment is all about. To achieve the overall goals, a positive attitude is essential. Each staff member has an obligation to learn as much as possible and to offer the highest quality of training to others. The staff must always remember that their first duty is to the members of the basic flight.
