Description

FROM THE ND WING COMMANDER:

The Basic Encampment is a foundational experience for Civil Air Patrol Cadets, and is the gateway to future progression and activities in CAP. The Basic Encampment is a pre-requisite for the Billy Mitchell milestone award and promotion to Cadet officer, It is also required for all National Cadet Special Activities (NCSAs) and many other valuable training experiences. According to CAP's Cadet Program Management regulation (CAPR 52-16), "Encampment can be the most significant and worthwhile training experience of a CAP cadet’s membership. Training is what the encampment is all about." The Joint Dakota 2016 Encampment will embody the letter and spirit of this intention.

Going to encampment is a lot like attending USAF Basic Training. It will be physically and mentally challenging. The mission of the training staff will be to teach and mentor the first-time attendees, but also to push them to always do their very best.

Planned activities include the obstacle course and rapelling tower, helicopter rides and other aviation related events, the firearms training simulator, and numerous team-building, problem-solving, and leadership challenges.

Applications and packing lists are available at http://www.ndcap.us/cadet-programs/joint-dakota-cadet-encampment/. We hope to host cadets from several states. If you need assistance or advice, e-mail Lt. Col Dean Reiter, Encampment Commander at dc@ndcap.us or C/1Lt Devon Brown, Cadet Commander, at Dnbrown39@yahoo.com.

The application packet (CAPF-31 and Supplements) must be sent to

JDCLE PO Box 608 Bismarck, ND 58502-0608

Pay special attention to the Packing List. Begin preparing and collecting what you need EARLY. You will not be able to procure items at Camp Grafton.

The deadline for Training Staff arrival is 1300 hours on 25 June. Do not arrive before noon, 25 June.

The deadline for General Attendee arrival is 1500 hours on 25 June.

It looks like we will have an outstanding cadet and senior training staff this year. This should make for a premier experience that you will not want to miss. The role of the training staff will be to teach and mentor the first-time attendees, but also to push them contantly to do their very best.

We look forward to another year of cadets graduating from the Basic Encampment and then exceling through the rest of their individual CAP Cadet careers. We are also excited about seeing many old friends there and making many more new ones.
