About this Event

DATE has been changed to August 17-20 2020 in Cherry Hill. Already registered participants will be contacted soon.

Dear New Jersey Wing, Registration is now open for the 2020 New Jersey Wing Basic Encampment (BE20) and Regional Cadet Leadership School

Basic Encampment will take place from 18-25 July 2020 and Leadership Academy will be 22-25 July 2020. Both will take place on Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JB-MDL).

We are exceptionally fortunate to be hosted by the U.S. Air Force, and supported by many units on the base. BE20 promises to be an exceptional encampment this summer, spearheaded by a professional, well-trained team of dedicated officers and cadet cadre members!

Requirements attending Basic Encampment:

  • Completed Curry achievement
  • Have 2 complete sets of ABU or BDU
  • Have Commander Approval and Parent approval

Encampment is styled after military basic training, with intensity adjusted appropriately for adolescents. The program is geared toward 15 and 16 year-old youth, so parents and home squadron commanders must have an honest discussion about the ability of 12 and 13 year-old cadets to successfully manage encampment’s rigorous schedule and stress.

Approved applicants will receive instructions on making registration payments

Payment will be completed at a later date. Accepted cadets will receive a detailed email concerning payment.

Registration is a multi-step process. Please take time to review the steps below:1. First, select the appropriate registration type above. If you select the CEAP option (Cadet Encampment Assistance Program), you MUST have already applied for assistance through National Headquarters. Encampment staff will receive the approved list from National, and no further payment will be required from cadets on the approved CEAP list. All other registration options will require payment at the time of registration.

NOTE REFUND POLICY: Refunds will be provided up to two days prior to Encampment. All refunds will be reduced by 5% which is NOT a penalty. Pay Pal and Eventbrite charge fees per transaction at the time of registration, and the 5% reduction in the refund reflects actual unrecoverable costs to NJWG. Refunds will be issued within 10 days of request by business check, to prevent additional transaction fees to members (parents)

2. Please visit http://encampment.njwg.cap.gov for complete information about basic encampment including the packing list , and all required forms to be completed and brought with you on the first day. Registration will close at the end of the day (midnight) on Saturday, 5 June 2020. Please remember that available student spots may fill up prior to the deadline. We will offer a waitlist to accommodate cadets who are willing to fill possible cancellations.

Registration does NOT guarantee your cadet a spot. Encampment availability is based on many factors . Including a need. Since encampment is a requirement for the Mitchell Award cadets needing it for a recent promotion will be given first priority.

If you have any remaining questions, please contact the encampment staff at encampment@njwg.cap.gov. I look forward to seeing you at JB-MDL in July.

V/r,

New Jersey Wing
