California Wing,

I am excited to announce that registration is now open for Student (first-time) and Advanced Training Squadron (returning) cadets for the 2024 CAWG Encampment!

Encampment is a great opportunity to learn important skills which will build a strong foundation for future success, to create lifelong relationships, and to overcome challenges and accomplish more than you ever thought possible; this training event is highly encouraged for all cadets and is a prerequisite for the General Billy Mitchell Award (C/2d Lt). 

The encampment will be held at Camp Roberts from 24 Jun – 2 July for first-time students.

STUDENT PRE-REQUISITES: Be a CAP member, complete Achievement 1 (Curry) by time of registration.


ADVANCED TRAINING SQUADRON (ATS): For those who have graduated from encampment, consider applying for the Advanced Training Squadron (ATS) to receive additional training in a broader scope of CAP’s missions, including: CPR, acquiring ES qualifications, earning the model rocketry badge, receiving practical leadership training, and much more.

Dates: 21 Jun – 2 July 
Prerequisites: Previously have graduated from an encampment.

To register, you must have forms CAPF 60-81, CAPF 160(I), CAPF 161(I), and CAPF 163 if you are under 18 years old. Be sure to get your Squadron Commander’s signature on CAPF 60-81.

COST: $395*

*ATS Students will be expected to have a fully functional 24-hour pack. They can either bring one or purchase one onsite for an additional $75. This is a separate item from the activity fee.
