Event description

Description



THE VIRGINIA WING ENCAMPMENT STUDENT REGISTRATION IS OPEN!!



PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS SECTION THROUGH TO THE END - VALUABLE INFORMATION



Encampment is the culmination of the five key traits of cadet life – the uniform, aerospace themes, opportunities to lead, challenge, and fun (ref: CAPR 52-16, chapter 1) – in an intensive environment that moves cadets beyond their normal comfort zones for personal growth. Through activities such as rappelling, obstacle courses, military training familiarization, and the like, encampments encourage safe, calculated risk-taking in a safe environment.

FAQs


ARE THERE RANK OR AGE REQUIREMENTS TO ATTEND ENCAMPMENT?

In order to participate in Encampment, a cadet must have reached the rank of C/Amn prior to the start of Encampment. It is recommended that cadets under the age of 14 have participated in at least a weekend overnight activity to ensure they are ready to be away from home for a full week.


IS THERE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE?

Financial Assistance is available to assist economically disadvantaged cadets attend encampment. If a cadet wants to attend an encampment, financial considerations should not be a factor holding them back. If you are planning on applying for financial assistance, please use the "PAY BY CHECK" option to pay. Once it has been determined how much financial assistance will be awarded to you, we will send you a link on how to pay the difference, if any. Here are the links for two (2) different scholarships available to cadets:

IS THERE A LIMIT TO THE NUMBER OF CADETS WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

Yes, this year we have 195 first year Student slots and 39 second year - Advanced Student slots available.


HOW DO I RECEIVE A STUDENT SLOT AT ENCAMPMENT?

A successful applicant is one who has registered online, emailed all completed paperwork into enc-da@vawg.cap.gov and has made payment or has mailed in a check to the Virginia Wing and it has been received by our office.


HOW DO I RECEIVE A STUDENT SLOT AT ENCAMPMENT IF I HAVE APPLIED FOR A SCHOLARSHIP?

When you do your online registration and you know you are applying for a scholarship, we ask you to use the "PAY BY CHECK" option for payment. There is also a question on this online registration system that asks you if you are applying for CEAP or a scholarship. Once your online registration is done and your paperwork is complete and has been accepted by Admin, you will be awarded a Scholarship Student slot.

Once the CEAP and scholarship funds are awarded, we review. If you have a 100% funding, you automatically get moved to the Guaranteed Student list. If you receive a partial award, you are contacted and given 72 hours to make arrangements for funding the uncovered amount. After 72 hours if you have not been in contact with us, you will be moved to the waiting list.


WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE STUDENT SLOTS ARE FILLED? DO YOU HAVE A WAITING LIST?

Yes, when the Student and Advanced Student slots are filled Encampment will go to a Waiting list. What this means is this - when encampment is full, anyone who still is in the process of registering and/or filling out forms and/or making payments will be added to the waiting list based on the date and time of their last submission to the registration process (i.e. made a payment online, a check postmark rec'd in the mail, a date/time stamp of an email that was sent, etc...). As your registrations are completed, you will be moved to the top of the waiting list, again in the order that they were deemed completed.

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT VIRGINIA HAS GONE TO A WAITING LIST FOR THE LAST THREE YEARS.


HOW DO PEOPLE MOVE OFF THE WAITING LIST INTO STUDENT SLOTS?

As we have cancellations (and they do happen) the student on the top of the waiting list is contacted and given 24 hours to respond. If you accept the slot, you are moved to the Guaranteed Student list. If you pass at the time, you move to the bottom of the completed paperwork waiting list.


WHAT PAPERWORK IS REQUIRED FOR ENCAMPMENT?
