The purpose of the cadet encampment is for cadets to develop leadership skills, investigate the aerospace sciences and related careers, commit to a habit of regular exercise, and solidify their moral character.
While the dates of Encampment for most cadets are June 13-20, pre-Encampment will start on 10 June for Cadre and selected Senior Staff.
We understand that there are some school districts in California that don’t end instruction/finals until after 10 June. We apologize – these were the only dates we were able to reserve the facilities we need for the encampment. As other wings determine their encampment dates, we will publish them for those cadets who need encampment but who are not able to attend the California Wing Encampment.
With parental intervention, some students may be able to speed up their end-of-term testing and leave school a few days early – we encourage that as an option as well.
We may be able to work with Cadet Cadre who are unable to attend all of Pre-Encampment but who can be there for the entire encampment itself. Watch this page for more information about your encampment options in 2017!
